My husband stopped on Friday, July 20 at 1 pm. The place was closed. Is that it for Harold's? Back in the day they had great BBQ and always, even in June when we were there the best Brunswick Stew. That stew and hot cracking...More

We couldn't decide what to get so we got the sampler. Best thing there was the Brunswick Stew with DELICIOUS cornbread to go with it. I wish I could have some right now. The pork and beef barbeque were okay, but the stew will make...More
