According to their personal website, the Prime Smokehouse was the “brainchild” of partners Ed Wiley III, his wife, Yalem Kiros, and Harold Worrell, Jr., who collectively sought to create a dining spot “designed to unite across cultures and generations.” Channeling their shared love for both classic Southern cuisine and smooth jazz music, The Prime Smokehouse was born, creating an experience in Rocky Mount NC Dining like none before had offered.
After opening their first restaurant in Garner, NC, followed by a second in Southeast Raleigh, the Prime Smokehouse answered the prayers of authentic Texas BBQ lovers in search of Rocky Mount NC Dining options, as they opened the doors to this third location that has become the “premiere destination in eastern North Carolina for those seeking good food, especially good barbecue, soul food, southern cuisine and great entertainment.” The overall success and connection with the community in Rocky Mount eventually made the team decide to close shop in Raleigh and simply focus on its now exclusive location here.
If seafood is your calling the “Prime” has a variety of succulent shrimp offerings, jumbo lump crab cakes, fish and grits or numerous other signature “catches.” The mouth-watering choices from “the smoker” include such BBQ standards as ribs, brisket, sausages, chicken, and more and there is also a fine selection off the grill, traditional fare, delicious salads, wraps and sandwiches, as well as homemade soups and chili. The unique drink menu at the Prime Smokehouse is sure to have something for everyone at the party to like and the smooth jazz and live music sounds are sure to complete the most enjoyable experience in Rocky Mount NC Dining that you can find.
