This is a great place if you like Lexington style Bar B Q. The staff is pleasing and food can't be beat. Don't forget the cobbler and ice cream for dessert.

Smoky and lean, the chopped pork is delicious just as it stands. It goes well with the vinegar based slaw and the hush puppies.

You'll find decent BBQ here, of the pork variety. Also have chicken and other things, including breakfast now. Sauce is great. Service is very friendly. Prices are a great value. Portions are fair.

Living on the northwest side of Greensboro we sorely miss our "local" Stamey's but we managed to trek all-the-way-over-to-Gate-City-Boulevard every now and then to drop in and see our old friends that are waiting to return to the Battleground location. This particular trip it was...More

Great taste, food was hot and ready to go. Seemed as soon as the order was placed it came out. Only complaint is staff is a little rushed. Reminds me of an old school bar waiting area. But food quality is amazing.

Best barbecue in this area. The chopped sandwich and the chopped plate can't be beat. The hush puppies and barbecue cole slaw are a hit and shouldn't be missed. The cobbler is good but not as good as it used to be.

I love eating Barbeque at Stamey's. It is always very lean and not full of fat like some other places. The food is always hot and fast!

Simple, cheap and satisfying. Very light smoke and basic vinegar / pepper sauce; the flavors will not blow you away, but that's not point of a place like this.

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!)
