The best whole meat barbecue pit family resturant in Raleigh, NC. People were lined up outside just to get a pulled pork sandwich. Great sides like Mac & Cheese, Creamy Cole slaw and Fried Okra. The best little hole in the wall BBQ joint

Excellent barbecue. Feels like homemade. Doesn't seem like a chain. The staff is really friendly. I recommend the brisket.

This is a really good hole-in-the-wall BBQ pit. Everything I ate was delicious, much better than I anticipated when I walked in. It's a down-home place, with a small eating area of old wood tables, decor by old framed newspaper clippings, service by some very...More
