A fine meal on a soft seeded bun: chopped barbecue and slaw. Bar B Q King also offers its pork sliced, which is very good but not as succulent.

Bar B Q King has no tables; dining is strictly in car, and orders are placed via the Servus Fone equipment at each car slip.

A fried fillet of trout plate with all the fixin's. If you are eating there, it comes on a plastic tray which is very helpful for eating in your vehicle.

The essential companion to central North Carolina barbecue: fine, crisp slaw. It comes on trays and plates and is automatically included in sandwiches.
