These people are excellent at what they do. The food is delicious and comforting. The crew working are friendly and efficient. The food is served fast, and even though the dining room is tiny, it is worth waiting on a table.

Want to try a sample of different bbqs from the area? Pork, beef, or chicken with a selection of VA or NC sauces, add in hush puppies, cold slaw and sweet tea. You're sampling southern in a comfortable, friendly stop.

This is an excellent kind of "hole in the wall" place on Lakeside Avenue. We discovered it on Yelp and we were not disappointed. They have 3 different kinds of BBQ - Virginia (which has a tomato sauce base), North Carolina (classic vinegar and spice...More
