I gave this a 4 star rating because the food was cooked well but it was not great barbecue. The price was fine but they did not even have brisket on the menu.

My son and I both love bbq and we both love this place. We shared bbq smoked chicken, a half rack of baby backs and half rack of st louis style ribs. We loved it all. Despite wanting to be pigs and eat it all, we put a bunch of it in a box for him to have more meals... More

Collard greens, ribs, chicken, and homemade bbq sauce were the highlights!! This is an old BBQ joint with a new name, new owners, and totally new menu. The ambiance is wonderful and they have live bluegrass in the evenings.

McKethans catered a recent event we hosted for 100 college students. We enjoyed pulled pork bbq, cole slaw, mac and cheese and banana pudding. The mac and cheese was AMAZING and quickly devoured by the students. I don't know what was in it that was different from my personal favorite recipe, but it was great. The banana pudding was also...

My first trip here just after the openeing did not go so well so I am so glad I decided to try McKethan Brothers again.The food and service are both great and it is now my new favorite for a quick meal. The portions are just right and the BBQ is really flavorful. The banana pudding alone is a great... More

Have eaten here twice now, once take out and once dine in. Both times, the food was good. The Barbecue was well prepared and just right with a variety of good sauces. The sides were good but portions were a little slight. I thought the price was a bit much, but not too bad. Service was good. Very family friendly.... More

Pulled pork nachos were not very good. Too many peppers and so little cheese and black beans I hardly knew they were in there. Skimpy on the pork as well. The puled pork sandwich was the best thing we ordered. But all in all not much to recommend. The peach cobbler was horrible by the way. They took left over... More

My wife and I ate here for the first time today, after looking at the online menu and at the suggestion of a friend. It is a bit tricky to access off of the highway (RT105). Turn into the Enterprise car rental, then you will see the access road to the parking lot. We had eaten at a restaurant that... More

Nice people but they don't have a clue about BBQ. The Chicken and Brunswick stew could be rated fair. Everything else was a joke. Baby back ribs were probably done early in the day and then thrown on the grill to be warmed up with a layer of the worst sauce I have ever tasted right before serving several hours... More

We were looking for some good NC BBQ and saw this place along the highway. The entrance is very confusing as you have to drive through a rental car business to get to the restaurant. Staff was very friendly. Menu was decent - but not many choices. You get 2 sides with your meal and my son chose hush puppies... More
