My ex husband's family is from Winston-Salem and I always enjoyed visiting his favorite restaurant. We've been divorced for over 8 years so I haven't had any Mr BBQ in a long time! When work brought me to Greensboro, I knew I had to stop in! I had my usual chopped plate which is a huge serving and not that... More

This is great carolina bbq. If you don't like the tangy taste, you might not like it. I thought it was really good though. Not traditional Cole slaw, made with tangy red sauce. Good on my sandwich, not by itself. I will try the livers next time

Our department was looking for a good place to cater our Christmas party and settled on Mr. BBQ. Not only was the food outstanding but they were the low cost bidder. What more could you ask for, great food at a great cost.

while visiting my mother, we decided on NC BBQ for lunch. Oh my gosh, this little jewel is the best in the state. Serving Winston Salem since the early 1960's it is like stepping back in time. Red booths, formica tables, plastic baskets for your food. We had chopped BBQ sandwiches with BBQ slaw, fries and hush puppies. The meat... More

We found Mr Barbecue on TA and decided to visit. I ordered the "Chopped Plate" (chopped pork) with slaw and beans. My wife ordered the Barbecue chicken. Both were excellent. The slaw was different from any I've ever had but it was good. You order at the counter, take a seat and they deliver. Nothing fancy. Just plain good Barbecue.... More

Great eastern bbq. My daughter and I were traveling and looked up bbq places. The prices were so good, we decided to take home some fried chicken to the family back at home 2 hours away.

This place is the real deal. Nothing fancy, just great BBQ. My first time here was 25 years ago, and recently visited WS and had to stop in. Still great after all these years. Looking forward to my next trip in Oct.

I've eaten here all my life and Mr. Barbecue is still one of the best around. They never disappoint. Excellent Lexington style BBQ and trimmings. The fried chicken is incredible. Also, don't forget that banana pudding! Still a great place and a great value!
