I hadn't been but a friend recommended the fried chicken and he wasn't wrong. Good Mac and cheese. Nice people. Guess that's why there always seem to have a full parking lot.

Not my best NC BBQ experience. I wouldn't go back. Sides boring and sauce was flat. Skip it and get seafood elsewhere!! Hush puppies ok. Mac and cheese is a skip.

So Rolands moved to a larger space recently and the place was pretty busy when we visited on a rainy Friday night. They have plenty of seating and you order at the counter, grab your drink and wait for your name to be called. They have a cafeteria style steam counter where they dish up your choices for you. We...

This is one of my favorite places to stop on the way home when we don't feel like cooking but want a home cooked meal. They have wonderful barbecue, fried chicken and seafood. The sides are the best! (I love their collards) You can go through the drive-thru for quick and friendly service or eat in.

There has to be a joke here, What do you get when you put five Yankees in a N.C. BBQ place? This place is great. A wide variety BBQ items, the chicken was great, the fish not so much,. Kids loved their first Hushpuppies. The staff was great. They showed us our way through N.C. BBQ. If you want to... More
