“Decent BBQ but we have tasted better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

We visited the North Carolina Railroad Museum and looked for a close by restaurant. We were told that Hendrix BBQ was very good. We gave it a try. The BBQ there was good but we were not ecstatic about it. The french fries were not tasty. The service however was very good. The atmosphere is just okay. It worked out okay in a pinch. We prefer the BBQ served at Alston Bridges BBQ in Shelby NC. Talking about great BBQ! Just give it a try!

“Great Carolina 'Cue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Hendrix has been around the Salisbury area a while and has made a name for themselves synonymous with really good BBQ. I prefer Hendrix because their BBQ is lean and you won't bite down into fatty pieces. Their foot long hotdogs are on time too. Onion rings rock, fries are ok. Can't speak for the rest of the menu, I found what I like and never switch it up

“Excellent BBQ with multiple locations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

I enjoy the bbq at Hendrix. I have eaten at two locations in
Salisbury. The food is great. Service is fast and reasonably priced. Great hush puppies. My favorite is the mesquite chicken salad. The tea is very good. They have a wide variety of selections. I wish they didn't use pick hot dogs, but they are still good. It is nice that they offer a choice of white, or red slaw. Both locations have the same food. Actually I think I have been to 3 locations, if you include Spencer.

“Good Old time NC BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

I have eaten at BBQ joints all over the South, and Hendrix is still one of the best. No trip to the NC Transportation Museum just down the road is complete without a plate or couple sandwiches from Hendrix. The decor is old timey, 50's-60's style, and the staff is always friendly. The portions are generous and the price is reasonable. Most of the crowd will be locals enjoying a meal.
