We love dropping by here and ordering a pound of bbq beef brisket and taking it home. It's true Texas bar-b-que cooked the way God intended. Yum--it melts in your mouth. Last year I ordered a whole brisket for a family celebration, and let me tell you, our children and grandchildren were happy campers. Then, last November, I ordered a smoked turkey for Thanksgiving. That was a great decision. Not only was it the best turkey any of us had ever had, it was reasonably priced, and they carried it out to my car for me. I appreciate things like that. We highly recommend the Southport Smokehouse.

We stopped to get ice beside the smoke house and it smelled so good that we decided we would have to eat there. Best decision! The pulled pork and brisket were very good, sides were good and they gave us good size portions. We will definitely be back!

I've titled this review 'Tina Turner', because this place is 'simply the best' I have never visited such a satisfying stereotypical American bbq place in my life. The pulled pork and ribs were simply execellent and I think I could eat them for the rest of my life. The ordering style is unique and provides a different fun edge to restauranteering. The décor is also eye candy to look at and if I return to North Carolina I will be sure to put this place ad a high priority visit once again. A VERY high recommendation.

The service is great. Relaxed and very casual atmosphere. I do like most of the food. The banana pudding is really really outstanding. The smoke sausage is very good. Great smoke flavor. I love the brisket also, but I would like a larger serving. The bbq is delicious. They have a great variety of sauces.

Love this place! Every time I come to Southport I have to stop here and pick up some of their value packs to take home to friends in Philly. Probably the best pork and brisket around!
