We finally went by here when they were open and ordered a dinner to go. First off the smoked meats are very good. Prices are where they should be and I can see why this place stays very busy.

Friday is Brisket Day go early or you will have to wait for a while...The pulled pork is great and the pork loin is better. I make a weekly stop here for my BBQ fix. The Carolina sauce is good and the other two sauces are average.

Scott's Walkup BBQ is a small restaurant with amazing BBQ. The sauce is a mixture of Carolina vinegar and southern sweet. If you don't want BBQ he has burgers and dogs. Open for breakfast and lunch

Local barbecue joint. Have their own specialty sauces. Very good Brunswick Stew and meats. Decent portions on the plates.
