Absolutely fantastic. We passed through on our way to Charlotte and got a sample of brisket, wings and ribs along with a side of beans and sweet potato crunch! Everything was delicious and the meat just fell off the bones!

No, I am sorry we do not. We do, however, have a partnership with What's on Tap, which is located just behind us. They have a great selection of beers on tap!

Smoky Dreams BBQ uses only the freshest meats and produce. Everything is cooked daily with delectable, original seasonings and sauces. Smoked to perfection . . . Pork, chicken, ribs and even the wings literally fall off the bone. The hash and the vinegar slaw are truly unique and there's creamy lemon and peanut butter pie to top it off.
