Lunch

Great Bar-B-Que and fried chicken. Bar-B-Que is still cooked old fashioned way with wood. You can do a drive they or go inside and enjoy a friendly wait staff. One of my treats is that I always pick up a couple bags of fried pork skins when I pay my bill.

Food is not bad. Price is a little high for what you get. The old lady in the drive through is very rude. I think she is related to the owner. I doubt she would still be working there if she wasn't a family member. I mean, how hard is it to work a drive though and be civil to... More

The potato salad is my favorite side and the tea is wonderful. Prices are in line with other local bbq places. They are famous for their chicken, and I will go back just to... More

I had seen the billboard on the highway for several years but never made the effort to go. Recently while returning from a visit to the park in Burlington, I decided to try it. I used the drive thru. We took the food to the rest area about a mile from the restaurant. The food was very good and still... More

Hursey's a locally owned BBQ restaurant provides quality food at a reasonable price. I had the chance to have a nice sit down lunch. It was hot, fresh and delicious when it arrived at my table.

Family owned establishment that has consistently served good food for years. The menu also offers 'broasted' chicken, which is also good. Many sides to chose from and family friendly. Usually provides Very quick service. They also have drive-thru. For a quick inexpensive meal, I would recommend this restaurant.
