My first time visiting and I was pleasantly surprised to find chicken sliders on the menu. They were yummy. The BBQ baked beans are tasty. The service was friendly and helpful about my questions. The sweet tea was not impressive, but the cleanliness and hot food made up for it. My family enjoyed the experience and the shareable sides.

My ribs could've been a lot more tender, I like mine almost falling off the bone! Had a good flavor though, the pull pork was better I also had a baked loaded potato to go, that was the best!👍🏾😊👏🏾👏🏾

We got the family pack, and the five of us polished it off. It was all delicious. The staff was very gracious, serving us at our table directly. (Of course it helped that we were the only people there at the time, since we were there for a late lunch.) The pulled pork, brisket and original BBQ sauce were delicious!

Bought the family pack and it was just the right size for the 4 of us. The pulled pork was the best. Got the cole slaw and mac&cheeseven as side dishes. Love the spicy hot bbq and the original bbq is also good. We also tried the ribs. They were OK.

The best whole meat barbecue pit family resturant in Raleigh, NC. People were lined up outside just to get a pulled pork sandwich. Great sides like Mac & Cheese, Creamy Cole slaw and Fried Okra. The best little hole in the wall BBQ joint

I discovered this placed recently as a NYer who moved here and was seeking bar-b-que! Great options and the brisket is very good. Its a bit pricey but its large portions and filling.

We were pressed for time and had the baby with us, but this lunch was definitely worth driving a few minutes out of the way. I had the pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw, beans, and waffle fries, and my wife had a bbq plate with coleslaw and mac & cheese. The service was friendly and helpful, the value was good,... More

Excellent barbecue. Feels like homemade. Doesn't seem like a chain. The staff is really friendly. I recommend the brisket.

This is a really good hole-in-the-wall BBQ pit. Everything I ate was delicious, much better than I anticipated when I walked in. It's a down-home place, with a small eating area of old wood tables, decor by old framed newspaper clippings, service by some very nice people.
