  • On Man v Food, Adam Richman comes for some traditional Eastern North Carolina barbecue, including chopped barbecue and smoked ribs.
  • This place looks like a hole in the wall, but it has the best BBQ around! Don't let the looks fool you, give it a chance and you won't be sorry!
  • The pineapple lemonade is addicting.
  • If you're in RTP on business and want to experience REAL North Carolina cooking, this is where you belong. It ain't pretty. It ain't fancy. But it is incredible down home cooking.
  • Bbq, mac & cheese and collard greens...don't forget the puppies.

  • Get the BBQ! That's pulled pork for all you Yankees =)
  • All the food was delicious, as were the sauces for bbq pork and sweet tea. But everyone in my group was blown away by the hush puppies. They're amazing!
  • My favourite pulled pork plate in the state. Takes to vinegar and molasses sauces equally well.
  • El lugar no es elegante en lo absoluto pero el sabor de la comida y la calidad es fuera de este mundo, altamente recomendado en comida BBQ (Southern Food).
  • Never pass it up. If you're traveling in the Durham area make sure to plan this place as a stop. You will not have any regrets!
