While the smells coming from the Thorpe Building on the Douglas Block are construction-related now, tenant Ed Wiley III said he is eager to have the smoky aroma of fall-off-the-bone barbecue replace paint smells in about a month.

What an Awesome addition to downtown and our city!

It is so exciting to see this awesome restaurant coming to our city! When I first heard the news my husband and I decided to visit the Garner location back in Sept. and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the food, entertainment and the general atmosphere. I'm also pretty big on decor, lighting and ambience and The Prime Smokehouse did not disappoint! Get ready for something different Rocky Mount! It's refreshing to hear Mr. Wiley's belief in the city and strong conviction in his decision to relocate to the region.....with 35-40 jobs in tow, we can certainly appreciate that! I believe that once the word is out, this restaurant will attract patrons from surrounding cities.
