i heard this place was excellent and ate here as i was passing trough on 95 north. the service was friendly, my meat with two sides was only $4.99. When i left they were really friendly and nice to us.
but...my pork ribs were just okay and the mac and cheese was so-so and the collards were ok. it wasn't like the way people talked about it being so great. maybe because i ate at lady and sons in savannah the night before? is it just a certain way of cooking that's N.C. style and people are particular to it? i like ribs so soft they're almost falling off the bone. these were a bit tough and kind of fatty.
of course, it is hard to beat $4.99.
just curious as to others' opinions on this matter.
also, i passed by parker's on the way back and it was packed. yet i was told mitchell's was way better and were were pretty much the only people in the place. that semed odd.
