The sides served at Phils are the best around. I enjoy every side they have available. They all have tremendous flavors! Their beans are unique and fantastic.

Phil's is a great BBQ restaurant. They serve good sized portions of great food for a very reasonable price. We often get the feeds four pack on Friday afternoon and then have leftovers for the weekend. Try the hashbrown casserole!

I had a pulled pork sandwich, awesome baked beans and a drink for $8 and change including tip. This is one of my favorite barbecue places in the entire area. I plan to buy a cooler to take some home to NC.
