Met a few of my riding buddies from NC last week on our way to a Children's Home benefit, I had the large Pork sandwich and was probably one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Fries would have been better if they were fresh......not...More

First timer today. The pork sandwich didn’t disappoint! I should have ordered the bigger sized sandwich. The sauce was a little sweet and Smokey, the pork just right. I can’t get that sandwich out of my head! Loved the, “Hole in the wall” atmosphere as...More

Most BBQ restaurants don't really have a great many dessert options. Full Moon not only has excellent southern BBQ with all of the expected and unexpected fixins, but it also has such good desserts! Do not go there without trying their cookies - half-dipped in...More

I had the pork plate beans and potato salad. A little too much mayo in the potato salad but it was good. Pork and beans were great. FYI my big smoker has a license plate, I like BBQ!

This is the sandwich I always get. I love the hot slaw that is added to the sandwich. The sauce is tangy and slightly sweet. I go to this location because it's close to work and the interstate. Today's visit was extra special. The lady...More

The classic Southern BBQ Restaurant looks like a converted gas station. Little is spent on appearance because it is all about the food. If you don't want to stand in line out the door, arrive early or very late. I prefer outside sliced plate. The...More

Full Moon has a long, delicious history of great Southern-style 'que made in the time-honored, traditional way — with quality meats cooked low and slow over a hickory wood-fired pit and spiced with a mouthwatering, award-winning bar-b-que sauce. We are famous for our ribs, pork sandwiches, turkey sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, loaded bbq & chicken bakers and half moon cookies.
