Food is always great! Service was great too! Only complaint is it was hot in there. The temp said it was 78 degrees inside.

I will be coming back for the hush puppies and mac and cheese. But the BBQ was just okay and the pork chop sandwich was tough. But the people were nice.

Best chicken n dumplings in Durham. Competitive BBQ with a couple other choices in area. Very small portion sides when ordered with a plate/meal. Crispy perfect 'puppies. Sweet sweet tea. Call in order to pick up in store or walkup service window. Hit or miss efficiency, accuracy, and courtesy of service. Hog Heaven is a staple of Durham.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and have had great food and service each time. Today, I ordered their fried flounder platter with fried okra and mac and cheese. The flounder was seasoned and cooked perfectly and the portion sizes were just right. They have a good menu selection if you are looking for something other than BBQ. I will definitely be back!

So, this hurts me to say, but I was disappointed here today. Not the food, but the service. I ordered 2 sandwiches. I sat down and waited a few min. 4 people were behind me, but all of them received their order before me. I went to the window and saw my catfish, but not my bbq sandwich. I have said to myself I will start reporting on service issues like this, so here we are. If I order something basic, and people behind me get served first, then something isn't right. 3 out of 5 due to service, food is good.

It was my first time ordering from there, but won't be my last! I had the BBQ chicken/ pulled pork combo with cabbage and fried okra. My grandson had the fried chicken, mac and cheese and green beans. He NEVER eats all the skin, but he did today! I would have given this five stars, but I wasn't expecting the cabbage to be spicy. Not everyone can eat spicy food. The service was great. I told the young lady who took my order that it was my first time there and asked what she would suggest. She was on point with the chicken and pulled pork.

This place never disappoints. Have ordered large take out orders and they catered a party for me and it was perfect. Food is always awesome. Thank you Amanda you never disappoint.

The service was fast but the fried chicken tasted like it was either cooked in old or cheap oil. Without hot sauce it tasted bitter. I appreciate the sides being put in cups with lids so everything wouldn't be soggy by the time I got home.

Nice family owned BBQ place with it's own personal taste. I love going to places like this. BBQ sauce is a little sweeter compared to George's sauce but quite good. Still Eastern Carolina style. I'll probably find an excuse to come back even though it is not local for me. A great place to try if you like trying different BBQ and chicken places

Great bbq and great service. Came in with a group of old retirees for lunch. Plenty of seating and ordering was quick. The food was served quickly by the waitress and we were well taken care of. Great variety of things to order and we look forward to coming back.

BBQ was okay. Too much vinegar in sauce... But they do have other good food.😊

I've been eating here loyally for fifteen years and taken every out of town guest here and beg others to forego other local joints. That "other" place doesn't hold a candle for the food. But honestly, I am tired of being corrected and yelled at by the dining room matron and listening to her correct and yell at others and complain about customers, the staff, and that the "floor hasn't been mopped in three years and they better not think she's gonna do it". I used to think it was quirky and a bit endearing, but now it just makes me cringe. It feels like a Seinfeld episode. You know which one.

Absolutely delicious! The meats were my favorite part! We had a party of 4, so I sampled the BBQ, fried chicken, pork chops and cat fish! 😋

Some of the best consistent BBQ and fried chicken in the area. But the menu doesn't stop there. Good ol' southern comfort food.

Everything was good. I dont like their vinegar based sauce but it comes on the side so I can use a sauce I do like. Their tea is the best

Food as always was great. More people using the drive through for their food. Not so many in the dining room. All staff wearing their masks.

Amazing barbeque, good ol nc style! Huge portions and great prices. I've started getting 2 plates so I can have some for the next day too, because the whole plate will be gone by the end of the evening!

I just got a job next to this place and couldn't wait to try it. I was really disappointed. For 10 bucks I got a bbq plate, 2 sides, and a drink. The sweet tea tasted like yesterday's batch, the mac and cheese tasted frozen and warmed up, and the coleslaw had more mayo in it than actual slaw. Maybe next time ) :

Best BBQ in Durham. Very polite people running the restaurant and amazing food. Hushpuppies Turnip Greens and Yams were all fantastic. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Highly recommend this place

I get take out about once a month. Staff is alright, I've had there pork, chicken and fish and a bunch of sides. Food is not bad at all. I think they need to be a little heavier on the portions. Thank you.
