Everything about my experience here was really good. Good, down home country cooking served by great, friendly people at a great price. The hush puppies are awesome and my Big Happy burger was a perfect combination of hand-formed patty with just the right ooze factor. This is much more than a good place for barbecue. They have lots of other... More

Outstanding BBQ in the Jacksonville area. I stopped by myself after arriving at the airport on a business trip. The parking lot was full so I figured it must be pretty good. Sure enough I was not dissapointed. I ordered the pork sandwich with slaw. It was simply outstanding. I could have easily had another. I ate it just as... More

Visiting our Marine Corp Son & family in their new home and Thig's was 6 minutes down the road! Definitely worth the drive...pun intended. A truly country family restaurant tucked out of the way, packed full of great BBQ food fare. But don't apply as a Dishwasher, as all the tableware was plastic. Very "kid" friendly and parent pleasant. If... More

My family had planned a night at Mike's Farm but when we were told it was a 5 hr wait to eat and a 3 hr wait for the hay ride we left. We were 2 hrs from home so we decided we would give this bbq place a shot. It is a small family owed restaurant. Great service and... More

My whole family has been here for generations, and we all say Thig's is the best place to go for BBQ! Also love the Fried Oysters on the weekend! Breakfast is also a good thing to try here!

The food is absolutely amazing. Definitely a must try. They have an incredibly friendly staff and are quick to delivery your food. If you order take out, don't worry. They won't forget napkins, sauce, utensils, etc. Hush puppies are to die for, along with their pulled pork sandwiches. You are missing out if you don't stop in!

My husband and I were cruising through the area around lunch. Searched for a good BBQ place. North Carolina is known for good BBQ. We came upon Thig's BBQ. It turned out to be the most friendly place with the best BBQ I have had in a long time. Fabulous southern cooking. I would recommend this to anyone. We will... More
