Flip's

5818 Oleander Dr., Wilmington, NC - (910) 799-6350

I've been going to Flip's since I was a small child. I have to say that poor Flip would hate to see this place the way it is now. Terrible customer service; the food is awful nowadays, and it just plain stinks in there too. What a shame to see a great place like that get ruined.

A definitive eastern North Carolina barbecue sandwich: While cole slaw is optional, its mustard-tinged crunch pairs perfectly with the smooth, smoky pork hash.

To eaters accustomed to sauce-smothered 'que with pyrotechnical flavor antics, this style is a shock. It is an unsauced duet of smoke and swine, a good example of the Bauhaus maxim that less is more.

Flip's sauce is tart, peppery and a magnificent complement for smoky pork. It is sold by the jarful, and proprietor Bob Church said he soon will be set up for mail-order.

The fried bologna sandwich is known here as the Flip burger. Add chili and cole slaw and that makes it ''all the way.''

Here is how the mac & cheese arrives. Each piece is easy to pick up and makes an exciting alternative to hush puppies.

Cool, soothing, sweet, and creamy banana pudding is an ideal dessert after a good hot barbecue meal.

Flip's has been a destination barbecue parlor since Harry Truman was president. Its motto: Best BBQ West of the Atlantic Ocean.

I've yet to try the chicken or ribs, but based on pork alone, I sure intend to return to this friendly eatery.

The original Flip's, 1957. The Flipburger -- a fried boloney sandwich -- still is on the menu.
