I have eaten here on numerous occasions. Good BBQ. And love their family meal. Never have made it for one of the nights they have music. But plan to in the future. Dave and Jen are wonderful.

Don't let the location or looks of this place fool you... in my book, this place served the best ribs in the area, at an affordable price. Worth a visit.

Had Carolina BBQ (catered) for a family reunion. Great BBQ and love the Mad Dog sauce. Slaw and potato salad were also excellent. Would gladly go back for more.

When in Newland, stop for the pork BBQ. It's good, and the staff are as sweet as the sweet tea. There is live music on the weekend as well.
