I went here for dinner after being told it was the best BBQ and they had won awards. First of all there were only two BBQ items on the menu, ribs and pulled pork. I asked if the "broasted" chicken was smoked also and the waiter said no. I ended up ordering the chicken anyway and the waiter brought me... More

wait staff is good but food is yuk! I had unidentified "things" all through my BBQ. Gross! I only finished 1/2 and it just grossed me out so much I couldn't eat anymore. I understand having some fat here or there but this was cartilage, gristle, and bone fragments. Not good.

Great smokey BBQ. Braised chicken is really yummy. Coated fries, homemade hushpups. Everything tastes freshly made and flavorful. Friendly staff.

I wasn't a huge fan of Hursey's when we first moved to NC from VA, as I had a favorite BBQ place in VA, and in my mind, nothing could compare. But...we recently ordered take-out from Hursey's and it was much better than I remembered it being. (So good that we ordered it again the following week!) The BBQ has... More

We went looking for great BBQ while in Burlington and this is where we were directed. The food was for real, ample servings and honest to goodness Carolina BBQ taste. The chopped pork was excellent, as was the fried and BBQ chicken. This is not a chain operation Loved every minute while there.

This was my first visit to Herseys. I thought the food was subpar and extremely dry. The service was okay but I dont think I will go back

Having just returned from Pittsburg, Kansas, the bar was pretty high as far as bro asked chicken goes. Hurseys fell a bit shirt there, primarily due to the average crust. Chicken was juicy and tender though. The BBQ and hush puppies, on the other hand, were fantastic. We will be back next time through town

I took the family (plus my mother-in-law) to Hursey's BBQ for lunch --- and it was, once again, just a fantastic experience. The restaurant has a definite "family, home-owned" feel to it - as several Hursey family members are always there working. The place was very busy, as it was prime lunch time - and yet our waitress was always... More

The BBQ has a really good flavor to it by itself. I personally like a little vinegar based sauce on mine. The sauce they offer is a little to sweet for my taste. Now the hushpuppies are the best in town. I get a small order and eat them on the way home. Haven't tried the stew, fish or chicken.
