In this day of big business it's hard to find independently owned small businesses that strive to be nothing more than just that. Great food. Small town, family atmosphere, great prices and local economy support. Why would you want to go to a chain store and make someone across the country richer when you can enjoy a great meal and help our local economies and families prosper? Thank God for Saks and great paves like this. Shame on corporate America that's poisoning our food and growing rich of our demise and search to save 2 cents

SAKS is family owned and operated with a very Patriotic atmosphere that makes you proud to be an American each time you visit. Great Burgers, Dogs, Barbeque and Chicken.
They treat my Mother like one of the family, but they do everyone who comes by.
West side of Asheboro and well worth the few moments it takes to drive down Hwy 64 to get there!

This little place is sort of off the beaten path, about 8 or 10 miles from Asheboro going toward Lexington on US Highway 64. It is "The Home of The Pickin" Chicken & Woodfired BBQ".

Haven't tried the Pickin"Chicken, but did have a go a the woodfired BBQ, and it is not bad. It comes out of the kitchen rather dry, with a nice amount of outside brown bits, with a faint taste of smoke. The BBQ needs some sauce to give it a jolt, but the house sauce is red, sweet, and really mold - didn't do much for me. Brought some home, hit it with a shot or two of Stamey's "hot" sauce and it was much better.

The BBQ Slaw is fairly well chopped, much less tart than most slaws of this type, and even has a bit of carrot in it. This type slaw goes well with the meat here, once the meat has been well sauced. The Hushpuppies are outstanding - nice & crunchy, soft & moist inside, with great flavor.

The Chili Dog is pretty good because the chili is nice - meaty, and with some nice flavor. This would be a very, very good dog if the roll wasn't so big - it makes the dog too much about the bread, and not the insides. The roll here is noticeably bigger than that used at Dixie Express, for example. Forget the FF.

Nice friendly folks at this small place, though service is slower than you will encounter at most places with drive thru windows. Open Tue - Fri, 10am to 8pm; Sat 10am to 2pm.

Foam cups, plastic forks, cement floor, small anywhere place. Drove 11 miles from our hotel because of other reviews to find a place out in the country with nobody there, frozen vegetables, frozen fries, barbeque, sauce too sweet for my taste. Said that they had been there 7 years, not sure why, nice people but nothing special.
