Great place to eat

We have been going to Herb's for over 26 years. It is located at the West end of Murphy and not far from where we live. Always great service and food and our friends who visit always want to go to Herb's for their trout.

Herb's was near our rental cabin. Each time we passed by, there were cars parked, so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did! Food was very good, lots more than just BBQ. Kids meals were a good size. Ribs were excellent! Service great!

Your out driving in the country and there is nothing but beautiful woods and Mountains. Bamm there is a restaurant and the parking lot is packed. Mmmmmm what's their secret to have people go out of their way to come here even that they have no alcohol? Good service, always friendly, great food and BBQ with very fair prices. Jump... More

We always enjoy visiting Herbs for dinner. They have a really nice salad bar and the food has always been very good.

I am heading in to this review without having read anything about Herb's and never having been here before. My nephew and I were on a motorcycle ride for the weekend and decided to stop here. Apparently, my dad had mentioned something to my nephew about it before and I agreed to stop. As far as appearances go, you don't... More

We stopped at Herb's today after rafting. It was recommended stop after a long day. The food was less than mediocre. There were four of us and the trout was obviously farmed raised by the taste. The smoked turkey was clearly sliced sandwich meat smoked, the smoked sliced pork and chopped pork were bland and had not been smoked more... More

I will say that we got our food to go, so maybe that was part of the problem. I don't even know where to begin. I called to ask about food to go for 6 ppl. When I saw the menu later, there were options like "meat by the pound" which could've been suggested. I was told the kitchen was... More

Our local hidden gem! They have great NC BQ. My favorite is their prime rib special on the week-ends. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

We enjoy trying out different local BBQ restaurants when we travel so were excited to go here while in Murphy after seeing all the positive reviews. The pulled pork was average at best but the sides were good. My husband said that the tea was too sweet and that's saying something because he loves it sweet. It was a Friday... More

It is 15 miles west of Murphy, but worth the trip every time. When you just have to have BBQ this is the place. Good hush puppies, too. Sunday dinner specials are very reasonable and always good.
