This long time familiar eatery has been a regular dependable place for good service by friendly staff serving up great "home cooked" style southern food.

This visit was no different. Upon arriving, we noticed another couple sitting in a booth who we knew had just placed their dinner selection. As we exchanged pleasantries one of the long time waitresses who was trying to seat us offered to seat all of us at a larger booth that would accommodate us all. We said that would be great and so in minutes we were relocated with ease.

We were offered the customary basket of normally delicious hush puppies, however on this visit, they were not as tasty as previously remembered but in fairness, it was towards the end of the evening and may not have been up to standard due to the lateness of the hour.

This was more than made up for by the large portions of the entrées and sides. Very delicious and filling were everyone's choices. Some had the bbq ribs while other's choose the chopped bbq platter with green beans and yellow squash. Of course the fresh brewed never ending refills of southern style ice tea was refreshingly enjoyed.

The staff was very friendly and efficient, frequently checking on us to make sure that we were completely satisfied.

You will be hard pressed to find a better place for good prices, great food and excellent service!

Rocky Mount BBQ is well worth a visit and you will surely become a repeat customer if not already.

Not only was the food amazing but the service was on point! Don't be deceived by this little shopping center place, it is HUGE once you get in. There is a lot on the menu and I had a group of 8 people and nobody had a single complaint. This is a new favorite when I'm in town.

Went for the She Crab/Lobster bisque which is still on the menu but no longer served. Ugh.

Got a crab cake sandwich and coke slaw and tea for $10. No garnish or sauce for the sandwich and it was small, which worked for my appetite but don't expect a lot. Coke slaw was finely chopped and sweet - mayo based. Service excellent. A favorite with locals. Dessert looked huge and great at the next table.

I'd do it again. Counter and sit down service.
