We enjoyed the beef brisket and BBQ, our son had a hot dog with the works. Very tasty but you have to like vinegar based BBQ. Service was fast and friendly.

We have never been here before & stopped in for a quick, light lunch. As you can see from our pics of the menu it is limited to several choices ranging from several types of Briskets, Bar-B-Que, Turkey Salad, or Hot Dogs.
We chose to split a "Brisket Sandwich", they knew we were splitting it, but we still had to ask for a knife to cut it in half. They should have cut it for us in back, this was just poor service.
I did enjoy it, but my wife did not care for it. We would try something else the next time we stop in.
The restaurant is narrow & long with limited inside seating, but also offers outside seating. It was clean & the restrooms were also clean.

Nice little place for a quick lunch. Hot dogs are nothing to brag about, but the toppings are what makes it. Great selection of dogs to choose from and the prices are good. I have not tried the brisket but iv'e heard great things about it. I will go back again and again.

Took my Family of four for the first time for lunch and ordered their Wilmington Brisket sandwich (6inch bun). The brisket was chopped too fine to taste the meat but the house special BBQ sauce was sweet, tangy, a bit spicy and it was on point.
The place was clean and neat to dine in. Definitely must try if you love Brisket. We'll be back for "Big Daddy" next time.

I had the peacock, which is cheese, chili and slaw. The only flavor was the chili, which just tasted like chili powder. My husband had all the way, onions, slaw, chili and mustard. All he could say positive was he was full. We were literally the third order for the day, 2 hours after it opened and we had to clean our table off. It also was $18 for our two orders which was the special of 2 hot dogs, chips and a drink. $18 for hotdogs....
