When we have a group of people over they have the best barbeque beef, and, turkey. They are not far from were we live and, are always very helpful.

The food is pretty good, not the best BBQ I've ever had but certainly far from the worst. I moved to the area from the Midwest about a year ago (where they KNOW their BBQ) and have been in search of a good barbecue restaurant. Although I've not tried them all, I've tried quite a few, Durham's is so far... More

Durhams has a wide variety of barbecue selections. All are great. Sauce is very good. This is counter service so no service rating

We have been here many times before and their food is very good. We "miss" their log cabin restaurant but quality of food is just as good. I only thing is that they don't have pulled pork, they have BBQ pork loin.

In an area where good barbecue is rarer than an honest politician, Durham's is a real treasure. All the meats are good! Their sauces are good, too.

Unpretentious barbeque, no need for sauce on the ribs. Large pork ribs, deep smoke into the meat. Sides were great - kachel and cheese homemade as was cornbread. Very generous portions. Will be back. Owner should think about adding collard greens as a side - I'm sure they'd do them right.

This is a review on three different visits all about a week apart. The new place has seating for about a dozen people, had lunch there with three other friends. I acted as the waiter since it's place orders at the counter, get food at the window, the service was great (and my friends are lousy tippers). We all got... More

Durham's is no longer at the location in the picture (that is now a nail salon). About two years ago, it moved around the block into a larger space that has some basic seating unlike the old little hut. Everything is good (smoked chicken, ribs, brisket, kielbasa), the cornbread is the sweet style and the beans are a favorite of... More

I guess they had to move, from a Log Cabin to a shopping center. The food doesn't seem to be the same. The smells are similar but the layout is a bit different and it doesn't appear that you are part of the place now, when in the old location, it was so small that you felt like you were... More
