Let me start by clarifying that 3 stars is a good review. Many throw out 5 stars for everyday restaurants. To me, 5 stars are reserved for only a handful of places visited over a lifetime. See my review on Bern's Steakhouse in Tampa, FL....More

Not normally a fan of sweeter bbq...but this was exceptional. Hushpuppies were fantastic, server was attentive without being overbearing...wife had my slaw, but she liked it. Big time winner.

This is a classic Piedmont North Carolina barbecue restaurant. The atmosphere is "down home" and just what you would expect. The barbecue and hush puppies are both excellent, and consistently so, whether dining in or getting take out. We've nver had a bad visit.
