“Real Eastern NC BBQ”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We always visit Hursey's when we are in Burlington. The bbq is typical Eastern North Carolina and always is authentic and good. Slaw, baked beans, hush puppies........what more could one want? A "down home" type restaurant. Nothing fancy. Just good food and service if you like eastern style bbq.

“Best Bar-B-Q in NC”
Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

When ever I come into town, I always stop in and get the best BBQ around. I have even gotten a 5lb tub and taken it to Alaska with me and got rave reviews.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

They had a generally normal menu with no signature dishes. $15 for one person to eat. The portions were modest and served in a way to satisfy a caveman but not much more.

Server was very nice. Food was up quick.

Pork was ok, nothin spectacular. Ribs were good. Fried chicken was of KFC quality and the fries were at least a half hour old. With all the options in the area I won't be back unless it's just too convenienent to pass.

“Meh”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

The barbeque is minced, and it seemed mushy and not much taste. Lots of locals. They probably get other items!

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you had a negative experience. Over the many years of Hursey's BBQ in Alamance County we have experimented with different types of BBQ. Our guest prefer the Chopped BBQ vs other types. It is our hope you visit us again and try some of our other signature products like our Ribs or Flounder!

“YUM, YUM, YUM!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Service, price, and food are EXCELLENT! This is the ONLY PLACE to get BBQ in Burlington! If you are not into BBQ, they have Broasted chicken which is sure to please. It is a healthier alternative to fried chicken. Of course, you could do what I do and get a combination plate with both!
