Terrible bbq

My husband and I both ordered the pork plate ($10 each and they only take cash) which came with chopped or sliced pork, coleslaw (could trade for fries), brunswick stew, and cornbread. Brunswick stew was good. HOWEVER, the pork had obviously been baked. Completely white, no pink, and no smokey flavor. Sauce is basically ketchup cut with vinegar and LOTS of white sugar. Cornbread was very dry. If they served this crap... view more

Not what it used to be.

Stopped by for the first time in several years and was very disappointed. This place used to rock and now it was a total letdown. Ordered the pork plate. The pork showed up quick but was dry and had zero smoke flavor or color. It was white with not even a touch of pink smoke color. The cornbread was bone dry as well. My wife ordered the pork ribs and while they were not dryed out like the sliced pork they had no smok... view more

One time best BBQ, has REALLY gone down hill

My Grandfather patronized Harold's over sixty years ago, and for decades, it's been a family tradision. \r I would eat there at least twice a month, but my last time eating there will probably be my last.\r I took a friend, we arrived early so no one was in the restaurant. Our waitress was rude and argued with me with I complained of grizzle in my sandwich the previous time I ate there. \r Portions are smaller, th... view more

DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE, MAYBE they WERE the best at one time, but as of today, worst BBQ we have ea

We drove a good distance arriving shortly after lunch. We ordered their ""SPECIALTY"" Pork Ribs only to find out they were completely out! I guess you might say that says a lot about their ribs and/or you need to do a better job of having more of your ""specialty product AVAILABLE"". Anyway we ended up going with what we thought would be the next best thing: Chopped Pork Plate & Sliced Beef Plate. Both the Pork &... view more

Sink your teeth into those ribs !!

My husband loves BBQ and when Harolds' was recommended to him, he jumped on it. The place is not much to look, you almost want to keep driving past it, but the food is excellent! Everytime my husband goes to Harolds', he get at least 2 full slabs of ribs and a quart of brunswick stew. The cracklin cornbread is also something to write home about. If you haven't tried Harolds' yet, you don't know what you are missi... view more

glorified shoe leather

THE WORST barbeque we have ever had! We got combo plates. The ribs were ok - not much meat and kinda dry. My sliced pork was tough,dry and tasteless.I asked for a mix of outside and inside. I was given all inside so they brought me a small plate with outside ten minutes later which was charred fat covered shoe leather- nasty! My friend got the chopped pork and beef. Also tasteless. The bruswick stew was good and... view more

Once Again I'm not Impressed Tasteless

I'm eating the brunswick stew while I'm writing. I've never had brunswick stew before. I have to admit the stew was good, nice flavor, but I didn't try this place for the stew or to spend $15 to try brunswick stew. Well silly me ordered the rIb plate, all I can say is NOT!! I'm upset because I tried the place based on reviews and a recommendation. The ribs are tasteless, they taste like they were boiled or cook... view more

Too much hype fo this. Borderline nasty food overall.I'm being polite!!!!

First time vist, after memorial day no ribs was available so settle for the all u can eat pork. She gave me a plate of cheap white bread and potato chips along wit brunswick stew ,in which the stew could have been the best I ever had if wasn't cold. And also the pork, wow the slices was nasty,dry,no flavor at all. Was looking for the bbq sauce, and found some homemade ketup mix with some tabasco , freaking nasty. The... view more

Best cornbread

I was excited to visit Harold's after seeing the restaurant being featured on a TV show off the Food Network. I was very disappointed when it came to the food. I had never tasted Brunwick Stew and was not impressed, and the BBQ POrk was not impressive at all either. There was very little flavor. However, the cracklin cornbread was some of the 2nd best I have ever tasted (1st being my mother and and my aounts). I... view more
