Re: “The Pig

We do carry out regularly from Pig. Southern BBQ at its finest although I'm from Hawaii. Still there is a common thread and that is pulled pork. These folks buy their meat directly from the farmer who treats his animals kindly so you know you are getting quality meat. Collards, pickles, cole slaw, hush puppies and their vinegar sauce are all wonderful for this island boy. If I were to make one complaint it would be that sometimes they go a little over board with the salt. Anytime we have visitors this is one of the first places we take them to. Oh yeah, the staff are very friendly and the price is quite reasonable.

Re: “The Original Q Shack

Re: “The Pig

This is a VEG FRIENDLY BBQ place! They have local-tempeh sandwiches, fried tofu platters and the most awesome fried mushroom po-boy you will ever have outside of the big easy. The mushrooms are either oyster or shiitake, whatever they can get from the local mushroom farmers. I have never seen so many amazing veg options. As a vegetarian, this is one of my favorite places to take carnivores and one of my fav places to eat in general. Just writing this makes me drool a little.

Re: “Red Hot & Blue

Plain and simple: this is the BEST BBQ joint in the Triangle and probably the state.

Re: “Backyard BBQ Pit

I took business clients to this place last Monday evening and had a great experience. Friendly and casual-- quality, quality food. Great brisket and chicken in addition to the above mentioned pork. Catfish was excellent as well.

Re: “Allen & Son

The real deal, which is hard to find these days. More expensive than Lexington or Goldsboro, but hey, this is Chapel Hill. And do *you* want to get up at 3 a.m. to fire the pits? Read the interview with Keith Allen in Holy Smoke (UNC Press) and you'll see why it's worth every penny. The huspuppies have been unreliable, but you should save room for the home-made pies and ice cream churned right there.

Re: “Backyard BBQ Pit

Wood-cooked pork shoulder -- you can go out back and watch them cook it -- with an array of soul-food sides. Your okra is fried to order, which is a really good sign. Run by a nice collection of folks, too.

Re: “Allen & Son

OK if you need a roast pork fix and can't get to Allen & Son north of Chapel Hill. This place is leased to someone else, and they don't cook with wood any more, so maybe it shoud be called faux 'cue. (Another wood-cooker in the area is Backyard Barbecue on Hwy 55, just south of i-40.)

Re: “The Pig

My God, this is a fabulous restaurant. My grandmother sent me a clipping from the NYTimes Magazine about it, and so my husband and I checked it out tonight: tamales with delicious side salad, BBQ plate, collards, pickles, ham plate, fried green tomatoes. A beautiful presentation and everything was delicious! Very friendly staff. Will return many times! I would suggest getting there early - they had run out of pork ribs and most pies by 7pm on Friday night.

Re: “The Original Q Shack

a quick great meal made to order in under 10 min everytime. They have THE BEST literally, brisket as well as pork butt (standard pork bbq and is really shoulder) but the best ribs are at Jims famous ribs next to whole foods in chapel hill a short drive away. the q shack has limited seating so u may be eating on a picnic bench outside.

Re: “Allen & Son

My favorite BBQ in the area. It's eastern NC style -- full of vinegar. The wide selection of homemade pies is also fantastic (though I rarely have room left for dessert). The hushpuppies aren't as good as at Bullock's, but I really like the Brunswick stew.

Re: “Allen & Son

What you see is what you get -- and it's really good. They also sell pork skin to take home and fry up for yourself.

Re: “Backyard BBQ Pit

Thanks for the heads-up! We have updated their listing in our database.

Re: “Backyard BBQ Pit

This restaurant has not been Lewis in quite some time. It was replaced by AW's, which was replaced by Backyard BBQ Pit.

Re: “Ole Time Barbecue

$11.85 for 1/4 dark fried chicken, w/ 3 veggies & iced tea. If the chicken wasn't overly breaded and the veggies tasting like they were heated IN the can that would be too much to pay for lunch, but I can't recommend the place for the price or taste of the food anymore. Don't know what's changed - unless someone is getting ready for retirement and needs to make as much money as possible by compromising standards. The servers are still as nice as ever though!
