We ordered our meal to go, restaurant was very busy for take out orders but service was good and seemed like a good place to have a sit down meal. Staff were friendly and helpful in helping us to make our selections

We were driving through Durham and decided to stop for a late lunch. The "dining room still has a late 80's feel" to it as another reviewer mentioned. The menu had a large selection and depending on what you ordered you got two or three sides. While this was a unique experience the food in my opinion was just average.... More

I went to Bulluck's on the advice of locals when I said I was looking for good local BBQ. The restaurant has been around since the 1950s, and in the current location since the early 1970s. I went for lunch and I would estimate the average age of the clientele in the restaurant (which was busy) at approximately 65 and... More

I have been going to Bullocks for over 30 years and the food has always been excellent. As a native North Carolinian, I have eaten a lot of BBQ, Brunswick Stew, and Hush Puppies, and I rank Bullocks among the tops in the state. Whether eating in or taking out, the staff is friendly and helpful. As compared to other... More

Southern BBQ and the like. Vast menu includes seafood to burgers to steak. Can't vouch for it all but my BBQ meal was very good and priced right. Server was very pleasant.

We went for a late lunch and had small pulled pork sandwiches, slaw, and hushpuppies. The hushpuppies are all-you-can-eat, and it's tempting to make a meal of them. They arrived fresh from the fryer, a delectable combination of salty and sweet. The slaw and pulled pork were good, but the bun was limp and flavorless: the sort that gives American... More

This was recommended to us by two duke graduates and of course we read the trip advisor reviews. We waited for 20 minutes to be seated. We ordered family style as there were 2 adults,a teenager, and a 9 yo. The hush puppies served first were very good. The fried chicken and fried mac and cheese were ok. The pork... More
