Our family had a late lunch here after a visit to the Conservatory Center. We had barbeque sandwiches and hush puppies. The service was fast and the prices very reasonable. Our food was good but would have been better if it had been heated more. I would probably eat here again if in the area.

A group of three of us went for lunch this week. The pork was great and the sides tasty. My friend was not a fan of the Brunswick stew (looked like mushy pork) and when we inquired about the "nanner" pudding, the waitress did tell us it was not homemade. But she did say the strawberry dessert was so we... More

Hursey's has been a local favorite for years and for good reason; it's good BBQ! I'm not much on their version of Brunswick stew, but that's me; I like mine thicker. But I digress, I went and still go back for their BBQ. Tastes are picky in NC as to what is best and this is more on the Lexington... More

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.

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
