This is one of the best BBQ places I've eaten at! If we could give it 10 stars I would. We walked in for lunch and the line wrapped around the inside. It seemed like everyone ordered something different when it came to either pork, beef or fish, but everyone ordered Mac n Cheese as there side. Take my advice order the Mac it won't di ... read more

Amazing soulful food. Although they were running low on food everything that was available tasted amazing. The hush puppies were soft and tasty. The potato salad tastes like homemade and not restaurant style (nothing bland or from frozen). The turkey BBQ surprised me because looking at them on the plate I assumed it would be dry but ... read more

I had to rush to write a review because the food is that good. I'm literally still eating. The hush puppies are divine. Crispy, but not hard on the outside, cornmeal sweetness and fluffy on the inside. The macaroni and cheese is delicious, seasoned and not greasy. They have a crispy layer of cheese on top and cheese throughout. I kno ... read more

Delicious pulled pork and sides. I enjoy their slaw, collards, beans, and sweet potatoes. It's one of those hole-in-the-wall gems with good eating. My favorite Carolina bbq in the area, and I've tried them all!

Delicious food, line always long but worth the wait everytine. The only place I can eat all my hushpuppies and want more. Get Mac n cheese or lemonade when you go, you will not be disappointed.

My favorite bbq place in the triangle. That’s before you get in to the fried food. Can’t go wrong here.

Wonderful hole in the wall type of place. The portions are huge and the food is satisfying. Personally, I liked the pulled pork and collard greens (I don't typically like collard greens) the most.

If you haven’t tried this, you need to. Ignore any bad reviews. Best country home cooking I’ve ever had!

Best fried pork chop sandwich I’ve ever eaten in my life, never had a pork chop that melted in my mouth until now. Will definitely be back to try more!

I love the folks here. They helped me out in a pinch when another bbq joint canceled my order last minute because of a card error--without any call (i had only gone with them because of delivery convenience). I called and they got me the food I needed. It was delicious and hot. Going into the joint might seem underwhelming, but just ... read more

I've been to this same joint after some ox tails, keep missing them but trying other things on the menu. They might be on to something here.

Fabulous, fast, friendly, and frugal! These folks are not messing around, offering some serious soul/comfort food. Even the veggies are loaded with flavor. A definite must. Oh and the turkey is not fatty, is mostly white meat without any heavy sauce, so good for those of us who are trying to make better health choices! Bon appetit!

This restaurant has the ABSOLUTE best food hands down that I've had in Durham, NC!!! The mac & cheese was DELISH, the ribs were tender & the BBQ was on point.

Will H. via google.com - May 7, 2021
The food is pretty good, most days. However, I am limiting my stars due to the behavior of the owner. Anytime I see her, her mask is always under her chin. To make things worse, most of the time, she is yelling at the employees, even sometimes over the food. We are in a pandemic and you are managing food. Could you please consider ot ... read more

Before Covid they use to serve the freshest food, in fact best turkey BBQ... NOW I am not sure what happened but the food is no longer fresh and BBQ turkey taste like it came out of a can. Whatever is broken, please fix it.
Ms Gary via google.com - May 3, 2021
Food was off the charts good. I wish I could eat it in, but it was take-out only. First time for me, but trust and believe that I will be back.
Frederick Brown via google.com - May 3, 2021
Where do I begin? The minute I walked in I knew it had to be good. There were 10 people in line. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This was our first time at backyard B ... read more

This may be a hole in the wall but, they are good at what they do. The soul food coming out of here was a bit unexpected. I'm glad I did stop in they load the plates up with food. The desserts are also very good . I had the cake and it was moist.

Didn’t live up to the hype. Lemonade was pure sugar with some sour at the end. Ribs were not tender enough and tasted baked. Overall good but wouldn’t go again.

Great hole in the wall (in the nicest way) bbq spot. The beef ribs fell off the bone. I'll go again the next time I visit the triangle.
Isaac Brown via google.com - Apr 19, 2021
I see why it was such a long line. The quality of the food made it well worth the wait. Had mac and cheese, cabbage, and catfish and everything was seasoned to perfection. Will be back for sure!

Wow what incredible food. I’ve never had pulled turkey before and it was absolutely incredible. The hush puppies were also the bomb. this is likely the best bbq I’ve ever had. Hole in the wall, very very friendly staff, and the prices are absolutely insanely good. Next time I’m coming thru - I’ll be coming back.

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.
