In a salty building about 1/2 mile off the main drag in Hillsborough, this 3-year old restaurant is well run and offers a flavorful variety of options. We were recently there on a Sunday, and enjoyed starting out with a delicious Bloody Mary for only 5 bucks. I ordered the brisket and baked beans. The brisket was good, not the... More

Hillsborough has a surprising amount of yummy restaurants to visit. We decided to bring some friends from Ohio to Hillsborough BBQ to give them a taste of "real southern barbecue." I was very pleasantly surprised by the delicious sides - the mac and cheese is great, the green beans super yummy. The actual barbecue itself is also very good! I... More

I travel to this area a few times a year and I try to eat here when I visit. This time I had the ribs, they were smoky and sweet - delicious. I also tried the sweet potato salad, it was good- roasted sweet potatoes onions and peppers with light dressing. One note - they are closed on Mondays (so... More

We've eaten here many times and it really is the best barbeque around (though the brisket is not very smokey). We like most of the side dishes too, and the service is good. But the prices have gone up substantially since our last visit. Too bad, I'm not sure this family will return soon.

The food was delicious. Good variety. I recommend their Mac and cheese. The staff was friendly and took time to explain the menu.

I always enjoy coming to Hillsborough BBQ with the family. There is always something for everyone to enjoy! From apps to desserts, this place is awesome! They have good beers to go with the food too!

Love their pork and corn pudding! Service is usually good. Also like that you can sit outside. Their slaw is usually a bit too "vinegary," so I usually get a double order of corn pudding, which is fine by me! If you must have slaw, I would suggest the mustard slaw.

Hillsborough's best barbeque. Little off the beaten path, but worth the effort to find. Sides are great. White, red and yellow slaw, but particularly enjoyed the mac n' cheese. Nice size restaurant in west Hillsborough.

If The Pit and Original Q-Shack had a baby, this would be it. Tasty bbq, but even better were the sides. Loved the mac and cheese and creole green beans. If only it were closer to Raleigh!

We stopped here twice recently, for lunch as we drove from the ocean to the mountains and back. It is a great place. It looks the part -- small restaurant in a non-descript strip mall at the end of a residential street away from the center of town. (Use your map app to get you there.) Lots of locals. Always...
