Outside, the 500-year-old live oak is the star. Inside, it's the eastern North Carolina style pork and home-made sides. Jackson's slow-cooks and hickory smokes their pork shoulders nightly. I had a chopped pork plate with mac/cheese, barbecued potatoes, slaw (mustard based sauce) and hushpuppies. My chopped Q and sides were all very good. However, my light and crispy hushpuppies and banana pudding were both excellent. Enjoy!
