Always a good experience! Our server was great (forgot her name, said something about snuggling with her dogs) and the food was awesome. Would definitely recommend the bacon wrapped jalapenos for an appetizer. The burnt ends are good for dinner. The house-made pickles should be sold in jars to take home. 10/10.
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!!!
Our first time here last night and the food was AMAZING! Best brisket sandwich I have had in the Carolina's. The service was fast and our waitress was very friendly. The blondie dessert was great as well. We will be back for sure
My daughter and I came to this place to have lunch. When we arrived, there were a couple of people ahead of us, so we had to wait. As time when by, those people were seated and others came in and were also seated. But we were not. After a bit of that, we decided to eat at the bar. We ordered drinks from the bartender, who took our drink order and promptly disappeared in the back. We were looking over our menu when the hostess appeared and asked if we wanted to sit at a booth or continue at the bar. We chose to sit at a booth. Since our drinks had not arrived yet, we took our menus and moved to a booth. After a while, the bartender brought our drinks over and put them on the table and then walked off without saying anything or responding to my "Thank you". Some minutes after that our waitress finally appeared and took our order. After waiting quite a bit, the food finally showed up and we ate. Soon after the waitress came by and asked if we needed anything, which we didn't. The next time she came by was with the ticket. We paid and left. From the moment we walked in, we never felt like anyone wanted us to stay and eat. The hostess refused to seat us until she had no other choice. The bartender got mad for some unknown reason; we only exchanged a few words (eg: what can I get you? A gin and tonic. Thank you), so I have no idea why she got mad. And finally the waitress avoided our table as much as possible. I doubt very much I will every go to this place again. Nor can I recommend this place to anyone else.
One of the very best local Barbeque chains. A sports bar type of atmosphere with regular tables and booths away from the bar. We keep going back! Good music. Great beer!
