My wife and I were driving to North Carolina and stopped here for lunch after reading the TripAdvisor reviews. We split the 1/3rd rib rack and the barbecue pork sandwich. Both were excellent, as were the beans and the Cole slaw. Well worth a stop....More

Beans excellent. Ribs very good. Fall off the bone but a little tough on outside. Tacos very good. Not thrilled with the cue balls or Mac and cheese balls. Their sauce is excellent. Portions good sized and prices reasonable. Atmosphere fin and casual. Good service.

Close to the best briscuit sandwhich I have ever had, and i eat a lot of BBQ. Pulled pork solid. Sausage better than average. Sides were also good quality. Good beer selection for a place of this size.
