  • This place is packed on Sundays after Church. Great food!
  • Best BBQ
  • Barbeque buffet
  • Not as good as Parker's Barbecue down the street. Still pretty good.
  • Try the BBQ - Got the BBQ plate with collards, yams, and boiling potatoes. It comes with cole slaw & hush puppies.
  • Ridiculously good BBQ and southern food...reasonably priced buffet with the best banana pudding ever made and fresh-from-the-pig pork...also a drive-thru if you're looking to grab & go.
  • Smack yo momma good
  • Come just before 5:00 when the buffet is freshly stacked!
  • Pull your port directly from the pig! Excellent banana pudding!
  • Great country cooking!
  • Love it...gotta try the fatback!!!
  • The place for Carolina BBQ on this side of town. With Parker's in the same city, Wilson has it made! And it's not a "pit" stop. Idk how anyone could say that it's disgusting?
  • Bbq ... pig pick'n
  • Large buffet!!
  • I almost afraid to add my two cents, but as a traveler stopping here for dinner. I would have to say I have had better. Pork was dry, items on bar were over cooked.
  • Everything
  • This is true Southern fare, not for the faint of heart (and not good for your heart!), but delicious in that typically Southern home style cooking way
  • Nothing better than down east BBQ and Bill's is one of the good ones.
  • While hog on the buffett
  • The line is all the way out the door!
