The Real Thing

The stacks of hickory wood out back are the first hint. The tea only comes sweet would be the second. This place is the real deal. To be honest, I've never strayed from ordering the pulled pork, so can't comment on anything else, but it is the best I've ever had. Try to go most every time I'm in Chapel Hill, but they seem to take long vacations from time to time. Call before you go!

Good food, nothing fancy

I've been here twice & have really enjoyed the food. The atmosphere isn't that great, but it's a bbq joint, not a posh restaurant. The Brunswick Stew is filling & excellent, & the barbeque is tender & flavorful... wood-smoked out back.

Did not like!

Had read alot about this place. Went there july 2nd 2011. Very dissapointing, dirty looking, sanitation rating only 91.0. Food was okay, nothing to write home about. I've had much better bbq and sides. It was pricey but that wouldn't matter if they lived up to their reputation. Maybe it's just seen better days.\r Charlies bbq right here in Clayton is much better.

We love it!

We found Allen and Son by accident, but so far they're our absolute favorite! OK, granted we only order the barbecue plate and haven't sampled anything else (why would we- we go there solely for the barbecue). I will admit there have been times we were served burnt or pieces of grizzle, but that was late in the evening, right before they closed. If you get there early in the evening, you don't have that problem. ... view more

awesome!

Allen and Son's is fantastic! When I was in college, my department used them to cater most of our functions and it was much appreciated. When I moved back to town, I decided to check them out and I was not disappointed. It's the perfect little bbq joint.

No longer the best

I have previously praised Allen and Sons as the best in NC. No more. Recent trips and conversations with other BBQ lovers have convinced me that they are off their game. Too often, I have seen large chunks of gristle, an unpleasant moment. If you can get around this --and I cannot -- the BBQ is good.

The genuine article

After reading the reviews on Citysearch I was conflicted by the wide range of opinions about Allen and Son BBQ so I decided to give it a try myself. Without reservation or hesistation I can say that Allen and Sons is the genuine article. Their bbq is ""exactly"" what is meant by the term ""North Carolina Barbeque"" Simply stated if you don't like Allen and Son's barbeque you don't like ""North Carolina"" barbeque. In... view more

Simply the Best BBQ in NC

For me, pork barbecue sandwiches are the real test for Eastern Carolina Barbecue. I grew up on it, and my standards are high. Allen and sons simply has the best available. I get it with slaw on top and add some Texas Pete's for that extra zing. The sandwiches are large and are a problem to deal with for the first 60 seconds or so - then it gets easier. Wait staff is very pleasant and the sweet tea is very sweet. Seat... view more

Nothing to Write Home About

First time there is the last time there. Painful hostess, server who ignored us after delivering the dinner, and burned fish were only part of what made the experience something that made me want to stop by Harris Teeter and get their BBQ ribs on the way home. Not only was the meal not good, but when we ordered, the server snapped (yes, snapped) that they were out of two of the items we had come in to get. Okay,... view more
