The food is absolutely amazing. Definitely a must try. They have an incredibly friendly staff and are quick to delivery your food. If you order take out, don't worry. They won't forget napkins, sauce, utensils, etc. Hush puppies are to die for, along with their pulled pork sandwiches. You are missing out if you don't stop in!

My husband and I were cruising through the area around lunch. Searched for a good BBQ place. North Carolina is known for good BBQ. We came upon Thig's BBQ. It turned out to be the most friendly place with the best BBQ I have had in a long time. Fabulous southern cooking. I would recommend this to anyone. We will... More

Enjoyed eating at Thig's. Friendly, dependable, not particularly great. Well-smoked pork and nice sauces. What you would expect. It wasn't a "must come back," place, but a "glad I went" and looking forward to trying someone else's BBQ to compare the two.

Flew into Jacksonville and couldn't wait to stop at Thig's on our way out. This is our second time here. They have the BEST hush puppies I've ever eaten. Our table ordered fried chicken which is fried fresh while you wait, fried shrimp, bbq sandwich, and even a chef salad. Everyone loved their food. The service is very good. They... More

My medium pulled pork plate came with cole slaw, hush puppies, baked beans and fried okra. I sprinkle the pork with the "house" hot sauce. Delicious! The slaw, baked beans and fried okra were very tasty as were the hush puppies. However the sweet tea was not very robust.

North Carolina has two distinct BBQ styles, tomato based sauce, similar to the Texas kind which I know, and the vinegar style. This was the vinegar based and it was fabulous. There was a hint of spice in it as well finished with a tad sweet. Pulled pork sandwich with slaw, yum, and at $4.00 who can argue. Don't miss... More

A great find. The bbq pork plate was 7 oz of the best vinegar bbq pork I have ever had plus hush puppies and two sides for less than $7. I had the green beans (which were also the best I've ever had - all day slow cooked kind of green beans) and mashed potatoes and gravy. Everything was delicious.... More
