Excellent barbecue!!! We were in town for an appointment at Duke. This place is awesome!!! Huge portions and great quality. I had the pork barbecue plate with cole slaw, hushpuppies, fries and garlic pickles. Amazing!!!! Two different types of sauces on the table (tomato based and vinegar based) which were both great! Very simple, no frills place but the food speaks for itself! Will eat there again.

Hands down, best ribs in the Triangle. Come a bit later and they're more tender than early in the day. Ribs are so good that I haven't tried any other meats from here, so can't speak to that. Potato salad is on point. Hush puppies too.

Best BBQ I've ever had! And the best hush puppies in the world! Very fast and accurate service. Definitely the place the locals go. The place was packed! Will definitely come again if ever traveling through NC.

Incredible BBQ and sides for a great price. One of Durham's best restaurants. Go for the sweet potato tots. Parking can be difficult at peak times, but there is a lot of seating.

This place is awesome! From the pork BBQ to the turkey brisket (incredible) to the variety of sides, you can't go wrong. The owner really cares about customer service and it shows in the food quality. This place is our new go-to for BBQ. Highly recommend.

We were here with a client discussing their Internet presence last week. The BBQ is awesome. This is a fantastic place to get BBQ in Durham. Great atmosphere, fast staff, excellent food, what else could you want from a BBQ Shack?! They even have live music. If you are looking for BBQ or brisket or amazing sides served up with a beer or a sweat tea this is your place.
