They want $13 for three ribs. I got the BBQ sandwich. I needed to add some of the four sauces to put on the BBQ. If you need sauce, it's not real BBQ, therefore it's average.

Very good bbq and the tea was good too. The wait was slow but that's the only negative thing about this place. Ample seating and good food. Very crowded during fiddlers convention though. Is recommend for the bbq.

Every other weekend we hop on our bikes, meet with friends and ride. We usually ride the whole day and look for local places to eat. The smokehouse is one of the most popular lunch spot with the group. We usually miss the lunch crowd: the restaurant has already served a lot of folks and winding down. We are always... More

Living in North Carolina has given us plenty of opportunity to sample a wide variety of BBQ. We are originally from Colorado and are used to a different BBQ then vinegar based BBQ found in our area. The BBQ we ate came with a choice of seven different sauces, four on the table and three more by request. Finally...a BBQ... More

Been here several times as I live local. The service is fair and the meal is a hit or miss. The food is okay, but usually isn't very hot

Fun place. Good local music. Good barbecue, but they were out if multiple main menu items. Better than usual for local barbecue.

If you are looking for the home cooked meal setting. This is the place for you. They have a wonderful bar with usually 3 choices of meat and all the fixins you could want. They also have a separate salad bar and a desert bar. Also breakfast all day. It is also very clean and the customer service is excellent.

The aroma brought us in the door. We were not disappointed! Pulled pork sandwiches were fantastic. Large selection of sauces. The homemade banana pudding was excellent also. Very friendly and attentive staff. Will definitely be back.
