    This place looks like a hole in the wall, but it has the best BBQ around! Don't let the looks fool you, give it a chance and you won't be sorry!

    Whatever negative effects on the body are outweighed by the positive effects on the soul. I got the pork bbq with sweet potato and Mac and cheese.

    Nothing fancy, but that was the best part. If you are new to the South (like I am), tell them! They helped and hooked it up. You can taste the love here!

    The building looks a little run down, but once you try the food you won't think about that. All the food is awesome. Including their pineapple lemonade. I love it!!!

    Home style BBQ served in styrofoam boxes. Nothing detracts from the deliciousness of the food. The brisket, macaroni and sweet potatoes cannot be missed.

    My favourite pulled pork plate in the state. Takes to vinegar and molasses sauces equally well.

    Ribs: soooo good. Moist, chewy, tender, delicious. With two sides and a beer: $12. The place is a super dive and super worth the drive.

    The ribs, chicken, and collard greens were delicious (though the hush puppies were not good)

    The chopped pork has an amazing flavor. I also had yams and fried okra, both delicious. Great southern cooking with friendly staff.

    If you're in RTP on business and want to experience REAL North Carolina cooking, this is where you belong. It ain't pretty. It ain't fancy. But it is incredible down home cooking.

    El lugar no es elegante en lo absoluto pero el sabor de la comida y la calidad es fuera de este mundo, altamente recomendado en comida BBQ (Southern Food).
