No frills, good barbecue

They serve delicious NC-style barbecue. Prices are reasonable, and you get a lot of food. Location is not fancy, but it's worth the trip.

Bob-B-Q is now in the Circle II location and the name is now hyphenated. The lunch buffet is good, as I like their fried chicken, dumplings, & BBQ but... breakfast was most disappointing! Run somewhere else for this meal! The eggs were not cooked to order even on the 2nd attempt, the crispy-critter potatoes floated in oil, the grits as... More

We had to visit the area to visit someone in the hospital. We took a break for lunch and visited the now Circle 2 by Bob-B-Q on Hughes Bld. It was about 12:30 and there was only one other table taken. We know why. The service was great, very friendly, however the food was no good. It came out luke... More

Little selection as they ran out of some selections and never replenished. Not what I expected for the price. Although a buffet, I left unfulfilled.

We LOVE their barbecue, definitely the best in not only Elizabeth City, but also in the surrounding areas (Hertford, Edenton). We always get take-out, so we can't rate the service (which we are sure is excellent!). Sides are quite varied and are excellent. The fried okra was superb!

Living with a BBQ connoisseur, I've tasted my share of Bar-B-Que all over the South. And we agree, this BBQ is the best we've tasted. Very attentive and friendly waitress, serving down-home cooking. The food here tastes like "lunch at Grandma's house after church on Sunday"!! The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I wish the... More

When we arrived, there were crumbs on the table. The server kindly cleaned them off for us before we sat down. She then served us some delicious tea and told us we could go up to the buffet whenever we were ready. After seeing the buffet, however, I feel that no amount of time would have prepared me for the... More

When you see a reataurant in a small shopping center, you always wonder what awaits. After inquiring with some locals, we got nothing but good reviews and we ventured forth. It was a great experience and the BBQ and sides were fabulous.

Great place for lunch any day of the week. The BBQ is their specialty, but the hot wings are good. The hamburgers are great too.
