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

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.
