Authentic old school BBQ. Great food, campfire style Brunswick stew. Chipped beef is excellent! Smoked right, just as the ole timers did it many moons ago. Super service, nice, friendly, family owned restaurant with quality that shows they care! People drive 50+ miles one way to eat here. I know this to be true, because one of them is me.

This place is iconic in FWB. I have been going here since about 1992 and it is fantastic, real BBQ with a mustard based BBQ sauce. I love the chipped beef sandwich with fries and new brunswick stew. They have great peanut butter pie for dessert. The place is not much to look at, but the food is really good... More

If you want a quick BBQ sammich to pick up at the drive through, then Sonny's is right down the street. BUT, if you want some old school que that is a couple of notches better, go down the street to Kinfolks. I think the sign on the street may be missing, but just follow the smoke on Racetrack Rd...

If you're looking for a fancy place with silver flatware and crystal adorning the tables, move on! But if your in the mood for fantastic BBQ, (chicken, pork, or ribs), a crunchy salad, yummy Brunswick stew, rivers of ice tea, a staff that remembers what you like best, and other patrons that are open and friendly, then pull up a...

Their food is amazing! It is a down to earth atmosphere with happy servers and friendly people. I would put their BBQ pulled pork against any BBQ that I have ever had, their house sauce is great but they offer others to choose from. Go to this restaurant you will walk out feeling good

Great BBQ and sides. Some of the best stew you can get. A real local hang. Not lots of atmosphere, but who cares.
