Not normally a fan of sweeter bbq...but this was exceptional. Hushpuppies were fantastic, server was attentive without being overbearing...wife had my slaw, but she liked it. Big time winner.

This is a classic Piedmont North Carolina barbecue restaurant. The atmosphere is "down home" and just what you would expect. The barbecue and hush puppies are both excellent, and consistently so, whether dining in or getting take out. We've nver had a bad visit.

I have tried Brunswick stew from multiple BBQ places and also purchased it from local churches. No one compares to Short Sugars! It is consistent, has a good ratio of veggies/meat and an awesome flavor!

My husband and I love this place. Small place that serves big flavor. Try the sliced BBQ and don't forget the beans. They have homemade cobblers with ice cream like grandma used to make.

If you sit at the counter you have the opportunity to watch cooks chop the pulled pork. The barbecue is quite good. If you like the thin NC-style sauce you'll love this one.
