Stopped in with a friend for lunch around 12 and there was no waiting and plenty of seating. The food was great and my friend ordered the BBQ sandwich plate and I tried the flounder filet (see photos). Everything was good. The place was clean and all of the staff was super friendly. If you are looking for a great place to eat ran by local owners stop here. It's good.

Great barbecue sandwich and fries. ! Pork was perfectly seasoned and tender. Slaw sweet but not too sweet. In this day of the shrinking burgers it's nice to see they dont skimp on the portions. Their turkey sandwich is great also

Good food. Inexpensive. The pulled pork BBQ is good and the sauce is good.

By far, this is THE best barbecue I have tasted in Durham! But the building itself needs to be upgraded. It is very old and outdated.

Delicious, authentic southern cooking. We just moved in the Durham area and checked out this spot since we live so close. We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of food we received for the price. Highly recommend!

Love that you choose which sauce "base" you use. (Vinegar vs. Tomato) Great staff, has a real old-fashioned home-town feel. Food is like down home cooking.

¿If God had a favorite BBQ restaurant.?. He'd own Byrds. Banana Puding is right on point and Sweet Tea is sweet. Southern Style all the way around! LOVE BYRDS

Excellent food. The soup side was as good as they suggested. Clean inside. Great service and extra friendly. A little pricey. Had the beef brisket which was amazing.

Food is wonderful, they need more help. So that they can stay open later hours. But don't take my word GO EAT! Trout plate..... awesome. Banana pudding..... awesome. Never sat there to eat I'm always on the go. But eat there you'll always go back for seconds.

Just got dinner here for the first time. I've lived in/near Durham for 22 years, and never came here before. Glad I finally discovered it! We did take out because of Covid, but the food was amazing even after 15 minutes in the car to get home. Definitely coming back soon.

This BBQ was great! I love their sweet sauce, their hush puppies and their fresh fries. Also, the service was amazing. All the personal was pretty friendly and fast to get back to us with what we asked for, even though we went in a busy lunch time. Definitely a great spot in Durham NC

Love Byrd’s! My household eats here 1-2 times a week. I recommend trying the pulled pork, brisket, burgers, okra, fries. I haven’t tried their breakfast menu yet, can’t wait to see what that’s hittin like. 🤤

I must have been living under a rock to not have known about this place until yesterday. The food is excellent, however, I would say to stay away from the fried pork chop, we found that to be pretty dry. Otherwise, everything else we got was great! Fried shrimp plate Pulled pork plate Porkchop plate Fries Green beans Collards Hushpuppies We'll definitely be back for more 🙂

Awesome little BBQ place. Good prices and hospitality. Fast service. A very casual old-school place. Parking is limited so try to avoid busy times.

They are so nice. The food is amazing, especially the burnt ends. You have to go on certain days to get the specials of the day. Small locally owned and operated. The owners are there everyday and happy to serve your breakfast, lunch, and your dinner needs.

Best BBQ in town. The staff is so friendly. I’d eat here every day if I wouldn’t put on the lbs. Wide variety of options daily. I’d recommend this place to everyone.

Best bbq in the area! family owned, locally supported, fresh bbq, always amazing quality. Housemade bbq sauces both NC styles. Highly recommend to anyone in the area or visiting. Also try the chicken tenders they are one of a kind. Very friendly service. Very unassuming of a place driving by, but let me tell you. This place proves they are the best!
