If you are a BBQ person this is the place to be! Penguin Eds does everything right from the Mac and cheese to the ribs to baked beans! Fun atmosphere too - telephones at each table to call in your order!

We went to the original location on Hwy 71B. We were very pleased with our meal. The food was very good, but my wife did have several pieces that were very hard as they were part of the outside of the smoked meat. Sides were good, two choices of a sauce and very good service. First visit, but would certainly... More

We love PE. Our 4 years old get a rib all for himself. Since he was 18 months old we have been going to PE's and he gets the rib plate every time.

My husband loves this place and eats here every time we visit Fayetteville. He ordered a 2 meat combo plate w sliced brisket and sausage, baked beans and potato salad and loved it. I had a pulled pork sandwich and crinkle fries and it was just ok. The sauce was the best part of it for me. I prefer a... More

It may not be fair for me to judge this place because I do not really like super smokey flavor on meat and this is super duper smokey. If you like that flavor then go for it and you will love it.

Good choice for when the BBQ urge hits you. Try the Ghost Pepper sauce mixed with the mild or hot. It's not as hot as you would think. Good chopped brisket and onion rings are spot on. I typically enjoy ordering Memphis Style (slaw on the top) for a sandwich and this did not disappoint. REALLY quick service and great... More

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
