I’m from Texas and this place made the best pork ribs I’ve ever had in my life. Great atmosphere, huge portions, and amazing ribs. The younger guy at the counter was also super friendly and open to telling two Texans about Durham and the surrounding area. This place is an 11/10. Highly recommended and don’t sleep on the mud pies either.

So good!!!! Tried our friend's smoked turkey too. Will get that next time. They let me order the kids meal which I really appreciated since I wasn't super hungry. I ate every bite!

My favorite BBQ place in Durham. It’s not NC barbecue, but more delicious! The portions are also great for the price. For sides, you definitely want to try the slaw if you’re not from the South.

I was pleased with the services, atmosphere and food. The staff were very knowledgeable about the food and made great suggestions of what to order. I ordered the smoked wing platter with greens, corn bread and banana pudding and a drink called Bushwacker. I wish they give you more of the sides but all and all I will definitely be back.

Stopped in for the first time with friends and enjoyed the meal together. The food was great. Had the cucumber salad, the macaroni and cheese and the barbecue sandwiches. The staff was very nice and helpful for us. First timers will visit again the next time we are in town.

I placed a catering order for 17 people and I must say everyone at the party was very pleased. The food was amazing. This was my first time having the turkey and it was delicious.

We came here for the wing special before the Duke vs. ND game. The wings were fantastic and the pulled pork sandwich was even better. It was the best BBQ I have had in Durham for sure and possibly the best anywhere. 🐂

Was driving through and wanted some bbq. Couldn't find anywhere that had appetizing pictures. But I saw this place and it looked decent. Service was fast and easy. Food came out pretty fast and hot. Ribs were really tender and fell off the bone with a nice amount of flavor and a nice Caroline sauce. Corn bread was ok not your grandma's corn bread but good. The mac and cheese was ok too I wish it was a little creamier and maybe some spices for flavor. But overall I give it a 7/10 not the best but worth the stop especially for the ribs.

Loved the rustic aesthetic. The waitress was very friendly and took her time to explain things and how the menu worked. The two gentleman behind the counter serving the platters and meats were working diligently and put out the food very fast. The food was fantastic. Wings: absolutely amazing. Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, fantastic flavor. I'm not usually a fan of wings anymore since I'm from NY and every single NY wings place has that "fatty Tyson factory farmed chicken taste". I'm so glad I gave these wings a shot. Brisket: juicy and tender. Even the older dryer pieces were still juicy. Ribs: nothing negative to say about the ribs. They maybe weren't as juicy and plump as some I've had but still very much enjoyable. Collard greens: fantasy. Boiled in bacon soup, I absolutely loved it. We had a few more items we purchased but everything was fantastic

The food was phenomenal. We stopped by on Saturday at noon while on a road trip, and we hit the jackpot. The food was great, and the cashier did an amazing job helping us all pick out exactly what we wanted. A++ definitely recommended lunch / dinner bbq spot.

Was traveling yesterday and decided to give this place a try. I was not disappointed at all. The food was awesome and the service. Restrooms could have been a little cleaner though. Remember some of the best foods are found in what I call, hole in wall places😋
