For those of you who have experienced Herb's Bar-B-Que (and Steakhouse) and want to have that experience again, maybe even better, well come on to Murphy North Carolina and try Herb's again. They have re-opened after their fire and are ready for the Summer. For those of you who haven't eaten at Herb's, well, you are in for a treat.... More

OK for a quick stop in, small scale, very low key and food is moderate, not great. If you are in a hurry and there is no other place to go, stop in.

Had heard people go just for the salad bar....what? It was okay, but very small and I've seen a lot better. The onion rings were tasty, but greasy. The BBQ was good and the side items we had were good. If I lived closer I might go back, but living 30-45 minutes away makes it difficult to justify going for... More

Love this little hole in the wall BBQ place. It is genuine and delicious bbq with a low-key vibe and great wait staff.

And still searching. Service was good and the smells outside of the smoker drew us in, BUT where was that fine smokey flavor on the ribs? Search continues...

A must stop BBQ place just east of the State Line on Hwy 64. I have been stopping there on my NC trips from Georgia for 25 years. You will be glad you stopped there for the BBQ pork, beef, blackened fish and the onion rings! :-)

We stopped by on Friday afternoon, not too busy. I had ribs, and husband had brisket. The ribs were dry, seemed to be warmed up with sauce poured over them but the brisket was moist.

a great place for locales, a meeting place for eats and greets after church. Good variety of taste sensations.
