We must have gone on a off night. The bbq was like leather terribly dry. Even the xtra sauce did not help it. The slaw was good, the fries were not the best. The staff was very friendly. They really weren't busy.

One of our favorite BBQ places to go. Often there is a line out the door, but the tables turn quickly. Love the hush puppies!

Stopped in thanks to a recommendation from the front desk worker at the hotel we stayed at. It was definitely worth the 30 minute detour on our way from Boone, NC to Charlotte, NC. This had to be the best BBQ I have ever eaten,...More
