A & G’s Bar-B-Que & Chicken

The owners decided to retire and close this place that served classic southern cuisine in Carolina Beach. Fortunately, the new owners have taken over the space and now Butts-N-Such is serving BBQ and more at 802 S. Lake Park Blvd. It does your heart good to see that they still serve specialties like chicken and pastries.
