Went here for lunch. Only issue is it can get a little crowded at lunch. But, worth the wait. BBQ is the best in town. I recommend the baked beans and collards as side dishes.

Came through here based on a recommendation from a co-worker. I had a long drive back to Charlotte, so I ordered it to go. Staff was friendly and got the food out to me fast. I thought I'd have to wait at least 5 minutes...More

I eat here often. Definitely the best BBQ in town. More expensive than other places. But, worth it in my opinion.

Drive through visit, short line quick service. Love the wood aroma of on site cooked meat which provides a unique NC flavor. Also adds a touch of "home" pleasant memories when businesses we're not so fast paced.
