Always so good! REAL barbecue is hard to find ... But this smoked brisket, turkey, chicken, ribs, AND pulled pork is to die for! Even the salads have a great smokey grilled taste! Can't beat the bar and friendly servers! I HEART Hillsborough AND it's barbecue!

My sister and family brought me here during a recent visit. They were very excited about sharing one of their favorite places so I expected alot. I wasn't disappointed. Good food, casual & comfortable atmosphere.

We love eating outside at this local BBQ "joint". All the food is good; I usually get the pulled pork or chicken. It is always tender & juicy.

We've always loved Hillsborough BBQ and raved about it in the past. We've even introduced others to the place and they weren't disappointed. We went there today for lunch expecting the usual fantastic food and drinks. Something was definitely different. Usually the place is packed and today it wasn't. It was nice to get a table right away, but that... More

We like going to this restaurant even though the prices were always a bit higher than restaurants comparable to it. It didn't matter but now they raised prices and it got to be a bit too much. Yes, the portions are huge. Yes, the service is good. Yes, we like the atmosphere. BUT brisket, catfish, collard and corn pudding with... More

People rave about the food here and at best I would say it is average. Nothing special. Found it to be a little overpriced for BBQ. Service is always great though!
