Terry's has closed for good. Most likely due to the pandemic. We're awaiting a pizza joint in this location.

I agree with Kelly Bossard. I can't eat on an empty stomach. I like to eat a lot of food when I'm hungry but I too can't eat on an empty stomach.

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. Ordered Brisket plate with mac & cheese and baked beans.....lean, tender brisket that was cooked perfectly.....sides delicious as well. Husband had the Brunswick Stew - he would have licked the bowl if he could have. Drinks...- serve your own, are a tad on the expensive side, so will bring our waters in next time. We will most definitely make this a go-to place. Staff exceptionally friendly.More

Small place, but excellent food. Smoked chicken was delicious and was their pulled pork, one of the best and most generous sizes I've had in NC

Have been here several times and the pork, ribs, beef brisket and smoked chicken have always been moist, full of flavor and a good level of smoke - not too smokey. Like to order a whole chicken so have meals for a couple of days....We order at least 2 - 3 times per month. Best BBQ around.More

Having eaten Terry's barbecue at several events hosted within my community, my girlfriends and I traveled to the actual restaurant to enjoy a meal. Honestly, the food at the events was better. Most interesting, the ribs served at the restaurant were not good. In several...cases, they were not sufficiently cooked. Surprised and disappointed.More

Got takeout...pulled pork, mac and cheese and baked beans. The baked beans were the best I've ever had. Mac and cheese delish and the pulled pork was fat free. So tasty! Definitely will go back.

I'm not going to insult anyone by saying they don't know what bbq is, because we all have different ideas of what bbq really should be. But one universal thing we can usually agree on is if the food tastes good or not, or if...the quality of the food is good or bad. Unfortunately for this place, the food doesn't meet either criteria. I can up with the tiny "dining area", but there were globs of fat in the pulled pork and the ribs, and the green beans were not only mush, but had a very unpleasant flavor, plus the cornbread was cold and dry. I don't know how they can charge so much for such inferior food. Guess I should have gotten a clue when I didn't see or smell any woodsmoke outside the joint....More

Sorry to hear about your thoughts of my " joint ", if the " dinning area" did not meet your standards I had one strike against my even before you tried the food. My staff and I check and recheck with each and every guest...More

My wife and I ordered a bbq plate each ( close to $30 ) and sat down in the "dining room". We took one bite, looked at each other and without a word carried the food over to the trash can and dumped it in....I think we ended up grabbing a sub on oak island for $5 each. Hope you can do better.More
