The bar-be-que is good but do not get their fish. At first it was good and now I guess they are so into their other food the fish lacks and is expensive

Seldom dine in but take out frequently. The staff is pleasant and efficient and I personally think it is the best BBQ around. The roasted chicken is really good.

My family had been shopping in Elon and decided to follow the road signs off 40 to Hurseys. We found it to be further off the road than the signs hinted at. We found it but thought the BBQ was fair at best. We found the chopped pork to be overly laden with vinegar. The potato salad and cole slaw... More

Not the best bbq I've eaten, slightly overpriced for the portion received in my meal and the fries were the most disappointing, dry and tasteless. May have just been a bad batch or something but we haven't been back since.

Love my barbeque. Hursey's is your average bbq house. Slaw, mayonnaise based. BBQ more moist than dry. Flavor ok, not overpowering. Food portion little compared to the amount you get. Hush puppies number in 4 but will give you extra if you ask. Tea very good. Service great. Over all C rating experience. Not sure I would drive off my... More

My first experience of Hurseys although my wife had been here several times years ago. She said it was just as good as it ever was ! We bought a couple of chopped BBQ sandwiches with slaw and a side order of hushpuppies to go and a pound of the pulled pork for packing in our cooler to take back... More

A local institution. Nothing fancy, but no surprises either. The veteran wait staff provide prompt, attentive service. The limited menu keeps things moving in the kitchen: vinegar-based barbecue, broasted chicken, fried seafood, hush puppies, strawberry or peach cobbler for dessert. "Yellow" slaw - not "red." The iced tea always tastes fresh, which is a must in a BBQ place!.

I'm an eastern NC BBQ lover but enjoy trying everyone's take on pig preparation. I wasn't starving but enjoyed a large BBQ tray for lunch. This set me back $6.85 and included BBQ, slaw, and hush puppies. The BBQ was flavorful and moist. Not the best I've ever had, but by no means the worst. Not much smoke flavor at... More
