Description: Most barbecue restaurants have introduced gas or electric cooking methods, but not us! We still slow cook our barbecue over a pit of hardwood hickory coals. The brick pits are completely enclosed, except for a bit of breathing room at the bottom. The hardwood coals are carefully monitored because they will dry the face of the pork if they get too hot. As each 15-pound pork shoulder cooks, the drippings fall onto the hot coals, sending the hickory smoke flavor into the pork. Once the tender pork is done, it is chopped or sliced to order, ensuring the freshest plate for our customers. No meal is complete without at least some of Stamey's keys to lasting barbecue success: Wood Cooked Pork Barbecue, Smiling service, Stamey's slaw, Fresh Brewed Sweet tea, Homemade cobbler and Hot Hushpuppies (introduced to North Carolina barbecue diners by founder Warner Stamey, himself!)

“Very Good for Greensboro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Actually, the barbecue at Stamey's is "pretty good" or maybe "not bad." But Stamey's is a Greensboro institution and the its drive-thru is usally quick and the prices are excellent. The barbecue is not strongly flavored so you can add your own sauce or one of the disappointing sauces they offer. Nonetless, it's pretty good. And we go there once a month of so.

“BBQ at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

If you are looking for a taste of the best BBQ in NC, get yourself to Stameys- I have yet to find better BBQ , and nobody does hushpuppies like Stameys!

“BBQ is too dry”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Sad a legendary NC BBQ like Stamey's serves better cobbler than it does BBQ. Country BBQ on Wendover is the best in these parts.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Right outside the UNCG campus, lays this BBQ pit brewing with history and great food. It's like an oasis! The BBQ has a kick to it but not enough to knock you out-which I like. Great value too! Only complaint: we need one (or two) in chapel hill.
Don't forget to ask for the slaw, it's killer!

“Fast service with a smil”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

You just can't go wrong with Carolina BBQ. Stamey's is a staple and always fast and good. Nothing ever changes but why would you when you have a recipe that works.
