First-time visitors may be somewhat wary of the location and the decor upon arriving (it looks like an old loading dock from the outside) and its open warehouse concept may not be to everyone's taste (Booker’s used to be a meat-packing plant). The plastic tablecloths, understated decor and concrete floor are perfect if you want to let your hair down, have some fun (the blues music is a bonus on weekends), and enjoy some great smoked meat and fish dishes, this is well worth the visit.
Booker's enjoys a good reputation for great staff. You'll find that they go out of their way to make you feel at home. One of the most popular dishes at Booker’s, especially among the lunchtime crew, is the North Carolina Pulled Pork sandwich, which is cooked in a large smoker in the kitchen. There's plenty to choose from here, with sauces and spices to match. Booker’s makes for a fun night out, and the atmosphere alone is worth the trip, especially if you are into hot Cajun food - and who isn't.
Where The Crowds Gather
This casual eatery beckons for people to gather and enjoy succulent foods, washed down with a cold ale from their extensive bar menu. The atmosphere at Booker’s is relaxed and boisterous at the same time, making it a prime location for indoor celebrations. No muss, no fuss, and guaranteed good times.
