Sadly, this business graces our highway no longer. It was delicious, and the pulled pork was second to none.

This place was great back in the day, but they've closed so why say anything. Their hours were rather short, but the food was good and the family type atmosphere was enjoyable - but they're closed!

This placed is closed as I stopped by during listed hours 6 times and the doors were locked, I called the number and it was disconnected. Darn, wanted some good BBQ!

Heard today that they've closed due to Mr. Holden's health concerns. Although the food will be missed there are much more important issues here. Best wishes to Mr. Holden and his family for hopefully a speedy recovery. You're in all of our thoughts and prayers

Really good bbq and fried chicken. I prefer the sliced BBQ here because it is more like the typical "pig pickin'" style you'll find in NC.

the best bbq in this area, compared to Bill's in Wilson, Parker's in Wilson and Gardner's in Rocky Mount. Love the unique flavor of the bbq and the creamy cole slaw is the best ever! Always use it for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Rude waitress, watery ketchup, slow service, bad coffee and a sausage patty that was served with a bite out of it. My son took one look at it and started crying. Never ever going back.
