We were late getting to Oak Island and didn't feel like cooking so ordered barbeque and fixings to go. Having a liking for Lexington style barbeque we were skeptical. We were in for a surprise as the barbeque is excellent.

Grabbed a to-go lunch. Great cheap lunch specials. We got a decent amount of food. Cole slaw is delicious, but a different variety than I’m used to. Loved their barbecue sauces. Meat was moist and delicious.

Everyone's meal was fantastic, with no disappointments anywhere. The hush puppies dipped into the honey butter is a dessert all by itself. Beef, pork and even the chicken are all great. Various sides were all great as well. The only two suggestions I'd offer are...More

My son's favorite lunch spot when we are there on vacation. We eat there for lunch at least 3-4 days each year. The BBQ sandwich is great. I like the house BBQ sauce.
