    Hungry? Try a trio platter with pulled pork, beef brisket, and sausage. North Carolina hot vinegar is a delicious dip for beef and the sausage tastes great with spicy mustard. Eat!

    You can't go wrong with a 3:2 ratio of hot to sweet sauce on anything.

    Omg mashed potatoes! So good - dont even want to know what they put to make it taste so awesome. I love that you can just get one rib when you are having a craving - they call it the "lone bone".

    The NC Gold sauce makes the sandwich.  Put it on the Pulled Pork and enjoy.  I liked the sides better than the sandwich.

    Excellent take-out... try the burritos for a more affordable option. Also easily order right from your iPhone using Mobilaurus.

    Pulled pork is AMAZINGGG, omygod. Get some pulled pork, Mac and cheese, baked beans, and some ribs of course. Add in some slaw and cornbread and you have the best family dinner of the week!!!

    Heard great things but kind of disappointed by the Pulled Chicken Sandwich. Perhaps I'll stick to Beef next time.

    It is the best BBQ I have had in this area, the ribs and burnt ends were well smoked and their gold sauce was excellent, every side I tried was well made and pretty tasty.

    Very good, but can be a little skimpy on the sauce - ask for extra, they don't mind at all :)

    Everything is always amazing, but do yourself a favor and check out the specials before you order. I have some demanding friends, and none of us are ever disappointed

    Delicious. Mashed was amazing, the pulled pork & burnt tip sandwiches were large and the price was cheap! 2 sides with each. Corn bread was yummy, light & moist. Even my 2 year old loved it!

    Slaw is good, but kick it up with some NC Hour Vinegar. Big Difference on the taste.

    The coleslaw is great, but adding some of their mustard-based gold BBQ sauce to it makes a truly outstanding side dish.
