Wife was out of town and the cupboard was getting thin. Thought of Wilkes and glad I did. I got the BBQ with cole slaw and a cup of the Northern Beans (I still call them navy). Both just hit the spot. Nice to know...More

Good place to stop for BBQ. Nothing fancy here except good food and fast courteous service. We have eaten here for years and have always been pleased. Don't expect a large menu but if you want BBQ, this is the place.

Chopped BBQ is very good as are the sides such as the potato salad. BBQ is sold by the pound and very reasonably priced. Unfortunately their is no eat in facilities, just takeaway.
