We frequently go here its a staple. Hubby loves bbq. The staff is great, the food is always great.. he loves the burnt ends, wings that come out sizzling in a hot iron plate and Turkey sandwich (Turkey Thursdays). The banana pudding always taste homemade.
first time trying a BBQ place and I wasn't disappointed. the moist brisket was excellent and very tender. The burnt ends were cooked well. A flavorful house BBQ sauce. the baked beans are packed with meat. Mac and cheese was slightly dry but overall very tasty. hush puppies were what you expect hush puppies to taste like.
Placed a to-to order online. I ordered: $38.44 Carolina Pork - Large $14.00 (comes with 2 sides and hushpuppies) Smoked wings $15.00 Pecan Cobbler $6.50 The pulled pork was good, and they provided a healthy portion! The NC vinegar sauce they provided is a MUST on the pork. As my two sides I had collard greens and mac & cheese; they were both extremely bland. Smoked wings were delicious! I had mine tossed in buffalo sauce. However, the ranch dressing they provided was W-E-A-K! Pecan cobbler was okay - it's not sweet surprisingly. Again, they provided a healthy portion. I have tried their banana pudding which was delicious; I'll stick to that next time! I'd visit this location again - the burnt ends seem to be popular so that'll be something I try.
So, this location is way out of our traveling destination HOWEVER, IT IS WORTH IT!!! The other locations nearest to us are not the same for one reason or another but this location is consistent in their OVERALL serving! NEVER A COMPLAINT here and the food is ALWAYS ON POINT!!! WE LOVE IT HERE!!!! It's absolutely the travel!!!!!! Our waitress LIT was exactly that and there's a waiter name Aaron (I think ) who's service is also GREAT!!!
Have dinned in there several times with a good experience. Recently made a take out order early afternoon. Hostess placed me on hold for 10 minutes. I hung up and called back. Was placed on hold for another 10 minutes. When I arrived to pick up dinner, I was surprised the place was almost empty? The staff was chatting and socializing with each other. I kept thinking , there must not be a manager here? Picked my order of pork barbecue and went home. My wife took one bite and said " I can not eat this" The meat was flaming hot without any sauce! It would burn your lips and mouth. We took pictures and threw $32.00 in the trash can. I had upset stomach through the night. You cannot call the corporate office direct. You have to send a email to give feedback. I asked for a call back. No word back. I called the manager of the store and told my story. She apologized and offered to refund ticket to my credit card. I have not been credited.
