Decided to try this Eastern Carolina style Bar B Que. Let me say the service was great. No problems there but the food? Yeech. I started ordering a Pepsi..... which they don't have despite the fact the menu board over the front/carry out counter has pepsi logo's on it. You get cans of coke instead. At least they'll give you... More

We love trying out different BBQ places, and when a Groupon cane up, we jumped at it. New to the area, we were not aware that this is a place that has been around a long time. Our order was taken promptly and the food was ready without delay. (We had selected the to-go premier pack.) In addition to the... More

Went here after a long day on the road. Food was hot and tasty. Best barbecue we have had in a long time. Service was speedy and friendly. Restaurant was clean.

I had high expectations for this establishment. Service was very good and the food came out fast. Alas, the food did not live up to the expectations. The ribs were falling off the bone, but flavor wasn't special. The mustard coke slaw was interesting. The BBQ simply did not have much flavor. Nothing was bad, not nothing was really special...

Really wanted to love this, but no. My husband gives it a better rating, but I did not care for the texture of the pulled pork....overly "pulled" almost mushy. Guess I just like my "Q" less processed.

Sorry guys, but I have had a meal that had some flavor. As hungry as I was, this just really took away my desire to have barbecue. The slaw was unlike anything that I can recall having consumed before. I could never walk in for this meal again. No way!

It's not bad, but it's anything but special. To be honest it reminds me of the Pulled BBQ they used to serve when I was a child in grade school. If you're looking to be awed then this isn't the place. If you're looking for a quick lunch spot it's the ticket.

First, this is one great family run resturant! We have heard so much about Spoon's and passed it on South Blvd for years-so finally stopped in for lunch- Not fancy, but good BBQ, hush puppies and good choices of side dishes- everything we ate was good! If you want a good olde fashion (been in business since 1963 I believe... More
