Fantastic service and food. Their house hot sauce is the best I have ever had for barbecue. I highly recommend a visit.

Worth the short detour into Goldsboro. The pork BBQ was outstanding. Moist and flavorful. I got the BBQ "plate" which is more abundant with BBQ than the sandwich. Coleslaw was also excellent. Put it on your list.

If you want to know the difference between the 2 different kinds of bbq in NC, come here and taste! Great sides, great chicken and, of course, great bbq! Your taste buds will be thanking you.

Had the BBQ Plate with Potato Salad. Choose not to eat the Slaw. BBQ was cooked over a wood fire. Very Good. It is worth the drive out of the way.
