Old Cape Fear Smoked Meats’ moto is “We Smoke It, You Inhale It!” and carnivores won’t be disappointed by the extensive, and unsurprisingly meat-heavy menu that’s loaded with southern staples.

Found just south of Downtown Wilmington along Carolina Beach Road, this simple establishment has an equally simple menu – but hungry visitors will be absolutely thrilled with the limited but hearty options. The menu essentially consists of a choice of a “plate” or main dish with two sides, and patrons can elect to feast on pilled pork, ribs, or brisket, on a bun or as a platter. The side dishes are traditionally southern, and include green beans, barbecued boiled potatoes, and cole slaw, as well as fresh pork rinds which are made in house. It’s a simple menu to be sure, but the in-house smoked flavor shines through in every bite, and will thrill meat aficionados who appreciate sticking to the basics, and doing it very well. Old Cape Fear Smoked Meats’ can also provide big platters for family get-togethers or filling beach picnic, and al dishes can be enjoyed in house or on the go for a filling (and wonderfully messy) meal at home.

Always fresh and satisfying, Old Cape Fear Smoked Meats’ will be a drool-worthy destination for dedicated visiting and local Wilmington carnivores.
