Fun atmosphere and great menu items. The sauce is sold at the counter and great for a souvenir! Fast friendly service and delicious food!

This is quiet an interesting place. We were told to visit by a local college student and he didn't steer us wrong. The food was very very good and we loved the old atmosphere. The meal was delivered quick and the wait staff was so friendly. We will definitely be back. We had the massive potato with meat and cheese,... More

My friends ate the BBQ plate and said it was fair. I had the special of the day BBQ meat potato. I couldn't eat the chicken on the potato. It looked like someone took a chicken leg and pulled the meat off and put it on top with the skin, grissle and all.

Stopped in on the way home and had the barbeque nachos. There was plenty for a single serving with lots of pulled pork. The restaurant does a great deal of carry out as well. There are carry out specials that are good for big groups too.

I do not think we have ever been disappointed in Penguin Eds. We have eaten here for SO many years, both the west location on Wedington, the east location on Mission and years ago the original in the heart of Fayetteville. The meats are always good whether it is pork, chicken, beef or ribs. The sides are great. A relaxed... More

Bar B Q, Smoked chicken, Philly Sandwiches, salads, and absolutely the best home-made COOKIES. I eat at this location at least once a week. The food is equally as good at their other locations. This location has great outside seating, and is really funky and fun inside, booths and tables.

Great portions, huge menu to pick from. The meat was very good. Lots of tables, and a fountain machine to get your own soda.

I love the adventure of finding unique restaurants. Certainly a unique setting with very good bar-b-que and great friendly attentive service. A problem on this visit was confusion with order but the server was most willing to return it to kitchen to make it right. My BBQ salad had sliced brisket instead of pulled pork but I didn't say anything.... More

Ed's is one of our favorite places for BBQ. If we can't go eat there we order take out and they also have a party menu which is so convenient for parties. It has a unique décor of penguins and plenty of room for larger parties.
