Excellent BBQ Ribs & Pulled Pork. The best potatoe salad & coleslaw ever! The Pulled Pork Carolina Style is very good too! I haven't tried the chicken.

Log Cabin Barbecue is a no frills little restaurant that specializes in barbecue. They offer a thicker tomato based barbecue sauce as well as Eastern North Carolina vinegar based sauce on their pulled pork. I had the smoked sausage plate with Eastern pork and green beans and mac and cheese. The mac and cheese was fantastic. The cheese sauce is... More

Didn't like that the BBQ comes already mixed with sauce. I couldn't taste the BBQ for the sauce. I got the platter that included a sandwich, mac & cheese and hush puppies and paid $8.00. Not worth the money, 3 little hush puppies, one small spoonful of m&c and the sandwich with a minimal amount of meat. My sister got... More

We totally enjoy Log Cabin BBQ. The good is delicious and it was delivered really quickly. I had a pork platter with North Carolina Barbeque Sauce served with potato salad and baked beans. Dessert was pumpkin pie with whipped cream. My husband had the pork with regular barbeque sauce, hush puppies, and baked beans. His dessert was Dutch apple pie... More

We stopped at Log Cabin Barbecue for lunch the other day and I was a little disappointed. In the past this place was excellent. We both ordered North Carolina pork and baked beans and potato salad. The potato salad was good but I am pretty sure that the beans were from a can. The portions were on the small side.... More

The food is excellent, and they have both a gluten free and dairy free menu. The family had ribs, pulled pork, beans, coleslaw, and potato salad.

All the food we had here was delicious! The baked beans were yummy, coleslaw some of the best I've had and the half rack of ribs I ordered was to die for! The warm pecan pie for dessert was a fitting end to a delicious meal! Service was great, the price was right - we will be dining there again... More

This was a very good BBQ meal. Plenty of food, the mac & cheese and potato salad were good too. I had the ribs & pork sampler meal. The only thing I thought odd was using plastic forks & knives. I think metal utensils would be much better to use than plastic.

I love eastern Carolina style vinegar BBQ and Log Cabin has perfected it. First visit today & we were so pleased. Wife had sweet red sauce which was tasty but I had to try the Spicy Vinegar. Not necessarily hot but seasoned just right that will make you want to drink the vinegar goodness straight from the bottle. Imagine a... More
