Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Super tasty food! I got the Philly Brisket Wrap which was amazing and so filling and my wife got the North Carolina western burger which was huge, delicious, and incredibly filling. Well priced and tons of drink options. Brunna was our server and she was...killer. She was quick and attentive as well as being very kind and fun to talk to. Definitely a must visit.More

This was my go-to place downtown for the last 8 years. Sorry to say the quality of the food just isn't there anymore. We tried 4 different meats and sides without finishing any of them. All were dried out and tough to eat. It's a...shame because the service has always been great and the atmosphere is the kind of relaxed place we really like. Maybe go earlier in the day before things sit too long or maybe they just had a bad day in the kitchen. Too many choices in Greenville to eat bad food.More

I had been to their Charlotte NC location many times. My husband had been wanting to try this location. So we decided to go tonight for our date night. Since it was a beautiful first day of fall night, we decided to dine outside. We...were quickly seated. Our server promptly came over to get our drink order. I get my ice tea, and hubby gets his Sierra Nevada IPA. I get the pulled pork sandwich with fried okra. Hubby gets the Southern Loop burger and fries. My BBQ sandwich is pretty good. You have your choices of sauce, including their Carolina sauce. Which is closest to Eastern NC vinegar sauce. The okra is amazing. Hubby's huge 1/2 burger included pimento cheese, pickled jalapeños, smoked tomatoe aiolio, fried green tomato, lettuce, and onion. He said it was incredible. For dessert, we split an apple cobbler. It was decedent with warm apples and caramel. But it's more like a crisp that cobbler. The service certainly could have been better. Someone dropped off our meal. My sandwich was supposed to have came with a red slaw. I'm from the part of NC where you find Eastern Carolina BBQ and red slaw. So it's hard to find it outside of that area. That's part of why I ordered it. I was about halfway through my sandwich when our server showed up. She asked if we needed anything and tried to make a dash for it before we could say anything. I asked about the slaw and asked for extra pickles. I never got my pickles. I was going to ask if they sold the pickles, but the server never stayed around long enough. They are located on the West End almost directly across from the Greenville Drive. There are several parking lots around. And there is off street parking for the restaurant. However, we didn't see that until we parked. They do have a full service bar. They have a great pup friendly patio. They have plenty of TVs for your game day pleasure. Overall, I would definitely recommend them.More

Not the best, not the worst…but, a solid spot for decent BBQ. I thought my brisket could have been shredded/pulled a bit more. My sandwich was actually “challenging” to eat! Still, it was delicious, yet very messy. Try the fried okra; I liked it. Nice...atmosphere and lovely waitresses.More

The menu has so many choices! I wanted to try the smoke brisket and smoked ham, so I went with a Cuban. The platter of trying multiple smoked meats was 2lbs, ie too much for a lunch while traveling! My Cuban was amazing! The potato...salad was great. My husband had (and loved) Brunswick stew and the Buffalo chicken salad. Wish we lived closer! We’ll be back though.More
