Both the barbecue and the chicken are very tasty. My preference is the fried chicken which is crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. The restaurant itself is bare bones so I usually do take out.

Everything that I have eaten at this location is average to excellent. Fried chicken is better than fast food restaurants that specialize in friend chicken! Barbecue is excellent! Fries and coleslaw are excellent. Mass made potato salad is above average. Hush puppies are above average....More

We went here hungry and as my four year old grandson said "I'm finished with starving!" Good BBQ and fried chicken. Excellent sides and everything was hot and fresh. Prices were very good and service was very prompt.

Stopped here for BBQ choosing Smithfield over another BBQ place right across the street, was disappointed, shrimp was just ok, but BBQ was inedible, had pieces of fat skin and other unidentifiable things in it. Some may like it that way but it appeared to...More

I don't recall pieces of bacon or pork, but given it's a bbq restaurant, I wouldn't be surprised. Sorry I can't be more definitive.
