Food mediocre dude directing everything just went off on the employees to make sure they had a menu item available in front of everyone meat was tender seasoned well mac and cheese trash cabbage ok hush puppies were sweet a different approach overall I can do without especially driving 40 min for mediocrity.

GOOD FOOD! Turkey plate w 2 sides- I already plated out a portion and there is still plenty left! My husband enjoyed his pork plate and recommends the lemonade. Wonderful hushpuppies. Really well prepared collards.

Really good bbq, to me the best part is the ribs! They have the best lemonade around too! It doesn't look like much in the inside and I hope they keep it that way. It adds character.

This place is AWESOME!!! Go eat there you won't be disappointed!

Slapping. Tastes like your grandma made it. Daily specials are legit. You can't beat the value of the $5.99 lunch special with 2 sides.

Behold this smol bbq shop where all of the good people of Apex, NC come together for lunch. Where an old man still does the cooking in the back because hes just that good. Where the hushpuppies are so light and golden, you have no need for butter. It feels homey, like picnic meals after stopping by church on a weekday. I like this p ... read more

This has to be some of the best barbecue I've ever had in my entire life. I walked in, was unsure what to try and the nice gentleman behind the counter gave me a sample of everything to help me make my decision.

Backyard BBQ definitely has some solid bbq and some great, large portions. I've tried their Pulled Pork sandwich plates and Brisket sandwich plates. The Pulled Pork sandwich plate is around $7 and you get a huge portion of food for that price. It comes with two sides of your choosing. The Brisket sandwich plate is a bit more expensiv ... read more

I hate to sound like a Karen or be one of those customers and hopefully they just had an off day. I'm rating 3 stars because I know they can cook good food.

Listen, if you want to feel like you're finally getting out of your grandma's church's fire and brimstone sermon and onto the Sunday potluck in sunny Tobaccoville, NC; this is the place for you.

Good tasting southern soul comfort food. NC BBQ, ribs catfish, great sides. Largely a takeout place. Could be tighter precautions taken for Covid with everyone behind wearing a mask (and properly). I do love their down-home food, though.
