Worth The Trip

Being a temporary worker in Fayetteville, I had heard a lot about Eds from people I work with, so decided to give them a try. Ate at the Mission address. Seated real fast and food out very fast. I ordered the two meat combo, wife ordered rib combo. Both were very good, but had to give only 4... read more

One of the best places in Fayetteville to eat and a true historic restaurant. Staff, food, and old atmosphere are great.

Everything we had was excellent. The fried pickles were crisp and delicious! Ribs and half chicken were terrific. The crown was the homemade fried pies! Hot and fresh! Excellent meal and great service!

This is one of my favorite barbecue restaurant. The meats are always moist and tender. The flavor is great. This is my family's favorite.

My son and I went to Penguin Ed's for lunch. The decor was fun and funky and we enjoyed calling our order in on the phone at the table. (That was definitely different!) I ordered the rib platter and it was alright. The ribs I found to be a bit tough but had really good flavor. The beans were tasty... More

If you don't mind the odor of barbecue while you eat eggs, hashbrowns and fruit, this place really does have a nice breakfast on the weekends. They are strict on the 11 a.m. cutoff though. I once got there at 11:05 and they stopped serving breakfast and my friends had already arrived so I had to go in. Tough to... More

Loved it. Staff was pleasant, barbecue was great. Seating is a little weird, but interesting with a phone at each table to call service.

We went expecting good things from the reviews. What a disappointment. The chicken was bland with no flavor the BBQ beans tasted like pork n beans. There were gnats and flies all over. So many it was impossible to even enjoy sitting in the restaurant. I hate that we spent our money here. We will not be going back.

Penguin Eds is my favorite BBQ restaurant in the area. I particularly like the chopped beef sandwich on Texas toast. The platters are also good . I like the sausage and brisket plate with beans and potatoes. The prices are reasonable and the food service is quick. Good food, reasonable prices, and quick service what else could you ask for?
