Mighty fine pulled pork! Carolina style; no smothering sauces needed. If you order sweet potato puree for a side, you've got dessert! Pricey but worth it!

March 2019 - do yourself a favor and try out the Brisket with the sauce on the side! It’s great and practically melts in your mouth. I tried the Mac N cheese again and I just don’t care for it. I Usually come here a few times a year. Usually the Pulled pork is fantastic, but it wasn’t the other day. Almost felt like it was 1 day away from being thrown out. Starting to turn to Pork Jerky. Best Hush Puppies in North Carolina! Slaw is always very good! Today I opted for the Mac n Cheese today and was very disappointed. Never again will I get it again. Picnic is a great place to eat and I will be back!

Extraordinary flavors. Combining the best of eastern North Carolina BBQ. With Western North Carolina. Excellent BBQ. Fabulous service. My husband says you have to get the brisket cheese fries, and the vegetables are outstanding.

This is one of our favorite local spots in Durham! They have the best BBQ and if you enjoy local spirits, they have those as well. They have a Sunday brunch menu. The staff will get to know you as a regular... they are great!

Good BBQ pork (but mushy texture... I like some crust); better fried chicken. The 'hush puppies' were a thick batter poured into hot oil: short, greasy cylinders, not balls. The slaw was OK, the collards good, the fried okra was great, the string beans we're mushy (presumably traditional, but not my style). Overall I liked Al's or Brew & 'Cue better.

First time eating here. Hardly any parking, we came around 2 pm. One one waitress was on duty for inside seating. Took forever to get anything to drink and I had to get up and get my own drink refill after glass sat empty for 20 minutes. My husband and I split the brisket platter. Brisket had a lot of fat marbled in it, so half went to waste. Sweet potato casserole was excellent and so were the hush puppies. Seemed very over priced to us for the amount of food you get.
