We went for dinner. I didn't know what to expect because I haven't seen many barbecue joints at the coast. Although I now live in "Lexington style" barbecue country (Guilford County), I'm originally from Wake County, which is strictly "Eastern style." I've spent equal time...More

I stop by about every other week to get our "favorite".......a plate of their great barbeque, with two sides (usually brunswick stew and cole slaw) and a good piece of cornbread. I always put two little cups of the "best" vinegar-based barbeque sauce around (I...More

This joint is one of the N.C. area. All, and I mean all their dishes are excellent. The staff and servers are friendly and the restaurant is very clean. Highly recommended.

Poor food quality and dark unwelcoming atmosphere. BBQ was mediocre and fatty. The Brunswick stew was served at room temperature. Also seemed like they needed to change the oil in their fryer because the fish breading had a weird taste.

We had a lunch that left us well satisfied and frankly, stuffed. Our shrimp burgers were bursting with tasty little shrimps. Hushpuppies - yum, yum. Decor is fun. The best, the prices are VERY reasonable. Need to come back and try the BBQ :)

Took our family of 5 here and had outstanding service, excellent food, and they even stayed open later for us. The prices were excellent and every item we ordered was excellent. I would definite recommend this to anyone looking for a great meal.

This was my first time trying Eastern NC BBQ. I loved their sauce. I did like the fact the restaurant had signs on the door reading " No profanity, Please be courteous". Great family atmosphere and awesome BBQ and hushpuppies! I will visit this restaurant

Tried this place based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. Bbq pork sandwich was great with fries. With had bbq pork dinner. You get hush puppies as appetizer as a heads up. Would eat here again
