We had lunch on Sunday and it was great. We sat on the menu side. The hush puppies were so good. The service was excellent.

My company has a meeting once a year here for around 100 dealers. I must say this year we were treated with such royalty I wanted to give a shout out to the main person responsible. That man is: Bill Taylor As usual the food was the main draw for us having it here, but Bill just went over and... More

Recommended by hotel. We really liked the food. Service was good and quick. We liked the BBQ sauce, the chicken and the ribs, the sides and the hush puppies. Hope we can return.

Great barbecue and seafood at a reasonable price. Buffet available also. You can eat for less than $10 per person.

Excellent traditional NC BBQ! But bear in mind, each BBQ joint in Eastern NC has to choose sides - Republican or Democrat! This one is on the Republican side. Others (for example Wilber's in Goldsboro and Ralph's in Weldon) are known as Democratic places. Even though I am a hard-core Dem, to me they are all good. If America would... More

My husband and I decided after seeing this restaurant being reviewed by Bob Garner on UNC-TV one evening. He loved it and my husband is a lover of all things food...especially on a buffet! We made sure that we visited the original location. We were greeted and seated very quickly. Our hostess was very nice and accommodating. The atmosphere was... More

Our stop this time was good. This is the classic eastern North Carolina barbecue, with hot pepper vinegar sauce. They also have the other classic dishes that accompany barbecue. Good corn bread, field peas, banana pudding, Cole slaw... In addition, they have fish, shrimp, ... This a barbecue place, not fine dining. They have a lunch time barbecue buffet that... More

My wife and I stopped in on our way towards the coast as we had heard this was a "go to" destination for fine BBQ. Well it's a "run from" destination! The service was good but this was the most absolute awful BBQ pork platter we have ever eaten. And not just the BBQ, the hush puppies and fries were... More
