The bbq is really good! Service is fast and polite. You order on a red phone and they bring out drinks and food pretty fast!

Casual dining, no frills and no fuss, this is a great place for a BBQ plate! Everything is smoked just right with a nice sauce. The plate specials offer choice of sides such as Cole Slaw, Beans, Potatoes or Mac and Cheese. Plus Texas toast. You won't leave hungry. We never have room for the homemade fried pies-peach and chocolate,... More

Great place for classic barbecue. Traditional southern barbecue with traditional southern sides. Homelike feel to the environment. Close to the square and Dickson.

The food is good but nothing spectacular. I had the brisket with cole slaw and potato fries. The brisket was only average. It was good but paled in comparison to other places I've been. The sides were good but still not stellar. The building itself was rather eclectic in decor. It felt cozy but also a bit cluttered. The staff... More

This place has to have the best barbeque in Fayetteville! The service is great, the atmosphere is awesome and I would highly suggest this as a place to sit down and have a great meal!

Great barbecue! And I am from Texas so I have eaten in lots of bbq resturants all over the state. Fantastic pulled pork and very good ribs. Good selection of meats and sides. Very friendly, and well trained, and informative, and helpful staff - which is rare these days. They truly care about the customer! Reasonably priced. Not cheap, but... More

We tried Penguin Ed's this past week. The pulled pork sandwich had the best flavored and textured pork I've had in Fayetteville. I will certainly return for that. The ribs had an excellent flavor and smoke ring, but they were a bit chewy. I did keep wishing I had the BBQ sauces from Whole Hog Cafe to go on the... More
