This place has such good reviews we decided to stop to eat. The restaurant is cute, but that is the only good thing about it. The "bbq" doesn't have any smoked flavor, and seems to be baked chicken or pork with a strong vinegar-slightly sweet sauce. The coleslaw has a similar vinegar sauce. The pork is very tender. Although to... More

This chain restaurant was filled with seemingly happy customers. Their fried chicken was so juicy and their hush puppy sides were good. This is another home style restaurant that people can't get enough of. Families were there celebrating birthdays for young and old. The prices are very reasonable and there is BBQ sauce enough to go around. I had their... More

Delicious chicken and bbq. I like their sweet tea. Service is great, friendly. Although it's 'fast food', it's nice that you can order, have a seat and they bring the food to your table.

This is a fried chicken and Carolina BBQ place mainly. Chicken tenders were very large and crispy. Potato salad is good along with the baked beans. Hush puppies are very tasty. BBQ has a little kick to it but you can always had more sauce if you like it hot!

Every time I finish eating here I think to myself why did you eat there but I seem to repeat it every six to nine months. This place is bland nothing special and expensive.

Good food, excellent wait staff. BBQ is always fresh and good. Chicken is best in town. This is a local chain but everyone I have visited they are consistently good

We're not big fans of Eastern NC BBQ but for a vinegar based BBQ it was pretty good. The fried chicken was fantastic as was the coleslaw. The staff was super friendly and professional, they made sure we had everything we needed and that we felt welcomed and comfortable. I wish we had these restaurants in our area! For those... More

Friendly Service and the food is to die for, such large portions and absolutely yummy. We ordered the combo meals and the waitress struggled to carry over the plates to our table, they were overflowing with wonderful bar-b-que. Hush Puppies, Fried Chicken, Pull Pork, potato salad, coleslaw......and monster size soft drink cups.......
