Had lunch here on my recent trip to Burlington for the Burlington Revival. The food and service was great. I had the ribs and Brunswick stew. Both were great. I have had better ribs but that was in TX and was a different style of BBQ altogether. For NC style BBQ they were very good. The Brunswick stew was pretty... More

Succulent fried chicken, hush puppies and a perfect bbq blend. Yum! I might come back to NC just to eat here. Very friendly staff. Casual.

Good food, great price, and fast service. Can't believe the bang for the buck here. Have been wanting to try for a while when in Burlington glad we got to stop by during this trip!

Classic barbecue joint based in Burlington. My family has eaten here a hundred times and we love it. You can't beat the 1 pound family meal for take out value

We visited Hursey's last year while on our way from Charlotte to Virginia Beach/VA. It was so good the first time we made a point of visiting again on this trip. It is a casual place with friendly servers and the food is served quickly. You can eat in or order at the counter to take away. We each had... More

Was on my way back from Winston Salem to Raleigh and stopped for lunch. Had a combo and the food was really good. I really liked the hush puppies but the slaw needs some work. This sort of surprised me as after being in business so long you would have thought they had it nailed. The sauce was great and... More

I stopped in for lunch on a Wednesday. I ordered the number one combo, barbecue and chicken. It comes with French fries, coleslaw and hush puppies. The BBQ is good but the chicken was great. It's cooked in a pressure cooker and is really tasty. Next time I'm just ordering chicken.

BBQ was good, but messy...but isn't that how BBQ is supposed to be?? The restaurant is a few miles off of 40, but it's worth the little drive. We were on our way to the coast and tried to drive and eat...not a good idea. Gotta remember, when you're in the south, you gotta take things slowly..especially your food.

I was on a business trip in several cities in central North Carolina. Driving by, we noticed the blackened brick smoke stacks and actually smelled the aroma. I tried several pork barbecues on this trip and I've had it many other times, in many other places. But this just might be the best of them all. Hursey's serves chicken and... More
