Excellent North Carolina BBQ and also does take out. I actually took home 4 lbs of BBQ and 2 qts of slaw with extra dip. They are not open on Sundays but staff were very friendly and helpful. Have eaten here many times growing up and always come back to this place when I visit.

We love the tenderloin here! Large portion on a great homemade biscuit! But everything is delicious!

Breakfast rules here! The biscuits are massive and have about a pound of food in them. I love the enormous tenderloin Biscuit or bacon egg and cheese biscuit. Parking is of short supply. The drive-thru is the way to go

If your looking for a fancy building, with pretty menus don't go here. If your looking for the best tenderloin biscuits, real eggs thick bacon etc. then this is the place. Some might complain that the slice of tenderloin is twice as big as the biscuit. Isn't that just awful!

Hungry for Tenderloin, stop by and get one of the best, and biggest biscuits around. I don't think you will be disappointed, if you are, tell them and they will make it right...

Best tenderloin biscuits ever! Never had anything here I didn't like. No fancy trapping, just good cooking and friendly folks.

The people there are super nice and consistently good. The food portions are EXCELLENT. I get various things there, but the pork tenderloin biscuit is HUGE with the meat being bigger than the biscuit! The BBQ is also good. I like the Brunswick Stew as well.

Usually go here for there awesome breakfast. Best tenderloin around! Stopped in the other day for bbq. Was told by the manager (who has been there 30 + years) they recently got a new cooker. This made the bbq taste so much better with the hickory smoked flavor. Older building in need of upkeep but great food!
