We have been here many times before and their food is very good. We "miss" their log cabin restaurant but quality of food is just as good. I only thing is that they don't have pulled pork, they have BBQ pork loin.

In an area where good barbecue is rarer than an honest politician, Durham's is a real treasure. All the meats are good! Their sauces are good, too.

The barbecue here is fantastic! Prices are little pricey but the meat portions are very generous! You wont be hungry when you leave. Its more of a takeout place-not an eat-in place

Been here before for very tasty BBQ. This time I had a Brisket sandwich with their sweet BBQ sauce. Well smoked and quite delicious. They also smoke some excellent turkey and ham. I always order from for my son's Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet....More

Food is really good. Better before they switched locations but still very good. Prices have always been reasonable. Sanitary and good service. I recommend to everyone new to our area.

My wife and I heard good things about this place, so we decided to try it out. I got the pulled pork and she got the ribs. They were both on the dry side. The sauce at the table was like water and had little...More
