My wife and I and another couple went on a nice Saturday afternoon (2:30) and it wasn't too busy. Got a BBQ sandwich with slaw, hushpuppies, side of boiled potatoes and a sweet tea. All were excellent. I wanted collards, but they had run out...More

My experience on my last trip was not as desirable as I remember when I was a child eating there. When I arrived home the food was not hot and they mixed the coleslaw with the meet and it was all wet.

If you're in a hurry and want to eat on the road, or sit and relax in your car, this is the spot for you! They do not have indoor dining. We didn't see a picnic table. The food is great! The food is cheap!...More

Barbecue was dry and did not have good flavor or tenderness. Slaw was bitter. Hush-puppies were greasy. There are no seats or tables in the restaurant, take-out only. One picnic table in the parking lot. Mr. Cobb was pleasant.

In a county, that is easily the Capital of the best barbecue in the US, Jack Cobb and Son is King. The 'cue is clean and has a nice chop to it. Other places, you'll find bits of skin, fat and veins. Not here. It's...More

Almost every time we go thru Farmville on a Saturday afternoon my husband has to stop and get a BBQ sandwich. He just can't pass by without getting one if they are open.

The best Eastern North Carolina BBQ I have ever had, excellent vinegar base sauce with great hush puppies. Take-out only we ate outside at the tables. A must return .
