This is what greeted us when we sat down to have dinner after an 8 hour drive. Perhaps this would have been a blessing however what they did have was substandard. After the greeting and announcement of limited menu we ordered a glass of wine....More

I was on my way back to Charlotte and stopped in Rockingham for a bite. I didn’t want fast food and found this place online. Located in a nice downtown area. Great BBQ and the service was on point. Would recommend!

Excellent food and service! This was a perfect stop for our family as we traveled down south to the beach. True Carolina BBQ with delicious homemade sauces, desserts, and sides! A must-stop when traveling through Rockingham!
