Buxton Hall BBQ enjoys immediate proximity to several brewpubs, so they are usually packed with people with the drunk munchies...my impression is that they take culinary shortcuts because most customers don't notice. But the barbecue was terrible--the ribs had no smoke ring, little flavor and...More

Excellent BBQ and interesting side dishes. They also have some very good craft beers to choose from to add to your dining pleasure. Southern Living has it in their top 50 and I concur!

Outstanding venue with a cavernous warehouse/industrial space. Excellent smoky pork bbq enjoyed by itself or smothered in a variety of tasting sauces. Imaginative, creative sides, especially the smoky green beans. Perfect dining experience!

The Menus are date stamped, ambiance is not what we expected for Eastern NC style, but very nice. Free Parking can be limited

You can watch them carving up the pig behind the counter. Classic Carolina pit bbq with all the usual sides. Our favorite was probably the collard greens and corn bread. Pulled pork was good but nothing amazing. Worth a visit and walk around the neighborhood...More

This is a very popular restaurant. It has a casual, fun atmosphere. The pulled pork was pretty good - the flavor was good and it wasn't fatty. I am not from this region, and maybe barbecue is different in NC... but the "pulled pork" was...More
