Met with family for breakfast at the College Barbeque. The veggie omelet was great as was the French toast. Endless good coffee with great service. Yumm

“Best Hushpuppies Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

I've been eating at College Barbecue at least occasionally since I was a kid. Their hushpuppies are the best I've ever had - big round ones that are crispy and have onions in them. I'm also a big fan of the hot dog (when you order a hot dog at College, it's a foot-long). The chili is different than it used to be, but still good. The barbecue is great too. My favorite of all the barbecue I've had in several different states.

“Don't Need a College Education”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2013

You don't need a college education to be a server but you should be able to get an order correct. Ordered bbq sandwich without slaw and garden salad with honey mustard dressing-- got sandwich with slaw in it and salad with ranch dressing. Scraped the slaw off and requested honey mustard dressing. Server seemed curt and aloof but it wasn't my fault the order was wrong. The salad was good but the bbq was just okay. Will try Hendrix BBQ next time we're in Salisbury.
