Hush puppies were excellent...they're like eating savory doughnuts. Brisket is really good but it is pretty salty. Yams are sweet and collards are just right vinegary tasting. The tea was ok. Want to try the pork chop and ribs next time. Super nice staff. It's like having Thanksgiving dinner at someone's grandparents home. Everyone a ... read more

Rough exterior. Rough interior. Facility Seemed to be unnecessarily dirty. Food: collards were the best I've ever had. Yams were yams. Little too sweet for my taste, but still good. Beef brisket was pretty good. Tasted like a good pot roast, not a smoked brisket. Hush puppies were light and fluffy. Overall, good experience. Not sure ... read more

This is the best food in several states! I travel 100% with work and I I'm within 8 hours, I alter my plans/driving route to come here. The food is magnificent and the folks that work there are phenomenal! I have been close enough in over a year, but I'll be there in 7 days!

Ok so food is great is just when I walk in there I'm scared I'm aww roaches or a rat Really needs a major upgrade and employees need to stop arguing in front of customers while in line. It's just ratchet at its finest honey but food is the bomb.

Brisket had some tough pieces...no smoke ring on any of it. This spot used to be much better for the price.

My favorite BBQ joint in the Triangle. BBQ is great, just a tad bit too moist but otherwise perfect Eastern NC style. Hushpuppies are amazing. Sides are all great. Prices are great. It's definitely a hole in the wall and doesn't have any ambience for dining in, but if you're looking for some fantastic BBQ take-out and a bang for your ... read more

I really enjoyed my stop at Backyard BBQ Pit! The meal was well worth the wait. This is by far the best carolina chopped bbq I've ever had and the Mac and cheese is the best I've ever had served to me at a restaurant. The staff was friendly and did a great job of managing the high volume of customers. I can't wait to return when I'm ... read more

The food is fantastic. Three of us, two BQQ sandwich plates and one brisket sandwich plate. My sides of coleslaw and baked beans were some of the best I ever had. A fair number of people waiting to order but the serving counter staff were friendly and efficient. Very much worth the wait. Limited seating for inside dining. Defintely w ... read more

Omg omg omg omg omg BBQ doesn’t get any better than this and I’ve eaten a lot of BBQ in my 50 years. Finally bbq worth bragging over. I swear to God we were driving by and the smell made me turn around and go back. I'm in Carolina bbq heaven. Yes this will be a frequent place to eat. But the staff what can I say?

Do not let the looks of this place fool you because the food is very good. I had the turkey bar b que and had to get more to bring home for the next day. This should be on you list of places to try out!

The best hush puppies in Durham. Great portion sizes for the price. The food is always slamming and if you can get in before the lunch rush, it's a quick in & out. The service is always friendly and feels like going to family's house. 10/10 recommend for homestyle soul food.

Food is fresh and flavorful, staff is friendly and seem to work well together. I had to regrets. First, I should have purchased two banana puddings(you won't want to share).😜 Secondly, did not take any pictures of my delicious 🤤 food(it didn't last long).

Food was delicious. I had the baked chicken it was seasoned to perfection. The candied yams and macaroni was awesome. Hush puppies are the BEST. Definitely home cooked authentic southern dishes. Had lots of options on the menu. Portions were very fulfilling and prices were great. Definitely try it out.

Needed a little more sauce still very good.
LT Retro via google.com - Jan 1, 2022
Food is amazing! I got brisket, Mac n cheese, & yams. The yams had a filmy consistency which made me not eat them but upon first taste they were delicious. Mac was good && brisket was tender, flavorful and very tasty. Customer service was great. I will definitely be back!

Kendall Lancaster via google.com - Dec 8, 2021
Food good but not what it used to be. I believe mainly due to shortage of staff in hospitality industry. Will continue to patronize though.

Food was really good!!! We were first timers and they gave us samples to choose what we wanted, we thought that was awesome so we didn't spend money on something we wouldn't like! Great service!

Amazing BBQ of all varieties - beef, pork, fish, chicken, turkey, blackened peas are great and hush puppies are not to be missed. Been to many BBQ places around the country and this is my favorite. The physical restaurant leaves a lot to be improved, but the food and hospitality are absolutely terrific. Don't miss eating here!

Best BBQ I have ever tasted, and I have made it my business to sample many around the country - Texas, California, Chicago, Virginia, North Carolina, etc. Not only is the food amazing but the people are very friendly and welcoming.
