If your looking for North Carolina East coast barbecue, this is the place. Have it with slaw for that real authentic taste. It's so much better than all those whole hog places that mix in the skin with the meat.

They changed the sitting area from the waitress coming to your table and taking your order to the customer placing their order at the counter then coming back later to pick it up once it's ready. Therefore, we use the drive thru more. The prices have also changed over the years where it's more expensive than similar restaurants in nearby... More

Stopped in here on the way back from the Fossil Museum in Aurora, NC. Nice atmosphere, drive-up window (I didn't see that until we were walking in), clean, with friendly staff. Also sells their own bbq sauce and local honey and crafts. Pretty good "q" without a long wait. I'd stop in again if I was back down this way.... More

I needed a quick snack, because I was limited on time. I made a quick dash through the drive-thru. My thoughts were I need something simple to tie me over until dinner. I went for a baked potato with sour cream and butter on the side. The young man told me to pull forward and he would give me the... More

Large portions of tasty food. The fried chicken was good. The hush puppies plentiful and the staff friendly My wife said the bbq chicken was good as well. Mac and cheese was a little too basic. Ambiance was basic but clean

We recently attended a meeting where we ate family style. The items served was BBQ, fried chicken, slaw, potatoes, Brunswick stew, corn sticks, hush puppies, and iced tea. The food was very good especially the good ole southern BBQ. The service left a little bit to desire.

Not bad...I'd go again but not a stand out. Cute pig ornaments all over. Oh, one thing that made me laugh...they serve ice cream and I ordered a sundae with marshmallow..I assumed the thick liquid topping. What I received was ice cream covered in mini marshmallows...who does that????

My coworker and I were headed back up Route 17 to Norfolk after some meetings in NC. We decided to stop for lunch and gas, and were faced with the same old fast food choices. As we exited the highway, my coworker said, "You know what this drive needs, without going way out of our way? A good old fashioned... More

My favorite BBQ in the area next to Skylight in Ayden. You walk up to the counter, order then sit at your table (long tables accommodating 8 or so each) with a buzzer then return to the counter to pick up your food. The BBQ is great, the chicken is also good as is the Brunswick stew. If you are... More
