Always have enjoyed the barbeque here. Yes the service is unorganized and slow during rush hours of service (the cashier's won't ring up the next person until after they have filled your order with no real space for lines to the three cash registers... that's for both eat in and take out. You'd think you would function like fast food... More

have eaten at Mr. Barbecue since the sixties, the food is great! Two years ago I went in to place a to-go order and the young lady ( and I do use the term loosely) that waited on me could not tear herself away from the phone and the conversation with her co-worker. This made for the most unpleasant experience... More

I am a huge fan of barbecue and have never had the North Carolina style, I must say the NC style is quite different from the Texas style. If you like the vinegar style BBQ then Mr. Barbecue is it. The meat = very tender, the cole slaw = comes in 2 styles (bbq or mayo). The BBQ has a... More

I live in Winston Salem and feel that the BBQ is the simply the best NC BBQ you can find! Our family likes that it is not overly vinegary-but simply delicious. We are not as crazy about the baked beans, but that is simply a personal preference. Mr. BBQ's beans are more of a smoky-spicy baked bean mixture with bits... More

I have eaten BBQ from Texas to every BBQ joint in North Carolina and the entire South. Personally I find this place to have the BEST BBQ of anywhere I have ever been. I know that is a big statement to make, especially in the South where people are willing to fight to prove their BBQ is the best and... More

We ate in. Companion has the combo for 5.99. He liked it. Came with enough hushpuppies for 10 people. I had the 1/2 rack of ribs for 13.50. It has 7 ribs, hushpuppies and fries. It was good. The ribs were tender. I will say the fries were outstanding. The perfect fry not too thick not too thin. The fries... More

Stopped in for a late lunch and wasn't disappointed. Ordered the combo special they had posted in the window, BBQ sandwich, order of hush puppies and drink for $5.99. The food was delicious. Will stop back by when passing thru the area again.

We didn't know any BBQ joints, but the desk staff at the Holiday Inn Express told us to go to Mr. Barbecue, so off we went. The place isn't much to look at, inside or out. But the staff is very friendly, patiently waiting for a group of Yankees to figure out what to order. I had the sliced BBQ,... More

I've been eating chopped BBQ sandwiches at Mr. Barbecue since probably before I even remember. It was a favorite at lunch when I attended Parkland back in the 80's as well - although I probably ate more of the hotdogs back then to be honest. Great food, great folks behind the counter. I can still remember every word to the... More
