Family owned and operated since 1949, Short Sugar’s is a true North Carolina landmark. Our distinctive hand-pulled BBQ and sauce has won awards for generations, including being voted Best Bar-B-Q in the Nation by members of the United States Congress. Recognized internationally from Switzerland to Indonesia, it’s not uncommon to see customers who fly or drive from just about anywhere, making Short Sugar’s a must-have stop on their visits to the east coast.

Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, Short Sugar’s ample menu will make you happy. We’re an old-fashioned kind of place, so sit at the counter and watch your eggs fry. Or order a chopped sandwich and watch our professionals chop the fresh pork shoulder to just the right texture. No matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll know it’s fresh and made just for you.

Or maybe you’d rather sit in your car and let us bring it to you. Just pull up on the right and tap your horn – we’ll be right out to take your order. We’ve been doing that for over half a century, and we’re really good at it!

If you’re short on time and just need to run in and grab something to go, call ahead and we’ll have it waiting for you. For the fastest take-out service you can get, use the door on the right. You’ll be in and out in a jiffy!
