Popular with locals for as long as I can remember. They cook the barbecue behind the restaurant on South Church Street. Love their broasted chicken.

I had never tried there food before received a coupon in the mail so looked up reviews I ordered 12 piece family meal the chicken was so dry I don't know if it was the time of day when they don't cook fresh between lunch and dinner but it surely was not a good supper my 20.00 dollars was wasted...

As you get out of your car in the parking lot, the first thing to greet you is the smell of pig cooking over wood. Go inside and wait to be seated – it does not take long. The sweet iced tea is good – not too sweet but you know the sugar is in there. The BBQ is excellent... More

Best Bar-B-Q!! Fabulous barbeque taste and wonderful hushpuppies. I always stop by when in the area. Wish Greensboro had one. Hurry, please!

Barbeque is their special everyday and it is always good. Wait staff was very friendly and right on top of things to see if we needed anything. The only thing they need to do in my opinion is to update their table tops to make it look a little better.

Our State missed the mark by including this place on their infamous BBQ Trail. We should have known we would be disappointed when we pulled up into the parking lot and did not experience the aroma of BBQ. The building could use a good deep cleaning, but we didn't let that hold us back. I ordered the Broasted Chicken Salad... More

Our journey along the NC BBQ trail continued and brought us to Hursey's. I had the BBQ plate with a piece of dark fried chicken. The BBQ, while certainly better than any food you will ever have from a chain restaurant, wasn't my favorite BBQ on the trail. That being said the competition of the trail is so high that,... More

Nothing fancy here, just good food and plenty of it. Barbecue is great and fried flounder is just as good. Hush puppies leave a bit to be desired - not bad but not up to same standard.

Delicious! My family was traveling from up north and we wanted to make sure we had some barbecue while in NC. The ribs were melting off the bone, the "broasted" chicken crispy and moist and the barbecue was tangy. Loved the cole slaw with its hint of horseradish too!
