I was returning to Raleigh from business in New Bern recently, and decided to try to find Jack Cobb & Son BBQ in Farmville after reading about it a while back in Our State Magazine. As something of a self-styled BBQ junkie, I was pretty...More

If you're in a hurry and want to eat on the road, or sit and relax in your car, this is the spot for you! They do not have indoor dining. We didn't see a picnic table. The food is great! The food is cheap!...More

Barbecue was dry and did not have good flavor or tenderness. Slaw was bitter. Hush-puppies were greasy. There are no seats or tables in the restaurant, take-out only. One picnic table in the parking lot. Mr. Cobb was pleasant.

Almost every time we go thru Farmville on a Saturday afternoon my husband has to stop and get a BBQ sandwich. He just can't pass by without getting one if they are open.

This is real bar-b-que not left over, no fat, skin or gristle in this. Try the collards, and the turkey bar-b-que, too! Just remember to get there early for some of the best ribs in eastern NC.

I have eaten BBQ at almost every little hole in the wall in NC. I prefer Eastern NC BBQ, but, I love Lexington style as well. I have eaten at Cobb's many times through the years; and, it remains my very favorite. This is take...More
