Husband ordered the barbeque for 4 to go and requested unheated buns. He got to the car and decided to check his order. He didn't get the buns that he ordered and took them back inside. The manager gave him an excuse that everyone makes a mistake. And he told her that no, the person that took his order didn't... More

A group of colleagues went to Henry James. The food was very tasty and the place allowed for a larger group to sit together. The staff was very friendly and attentive. They also give you a lot of food for the price. I especially enjoyed the sliced BBQ and the hush puppies.

My family loves this place. Never have to wait for parking or for a table (or at least I never have). BBQ is good with no fillers, hushpuppies are great, slaw is good, cobblers are great. Atmosphere is nothing great, but they do keep it clean. A must for locals or out-of-towners.

Henry James has always been a great place to have bbq in Asheboro. They serve you A LOT of food and the sides are always hot and fresh. If you have room after all of the bbq, their cobblers are great.

Stopped in for Lunch and was disappointed in both the quality of the food and price. Low quality and high priced. $9 for lunch. Chopped plate, slaw, hush puppies, BBQ and tea. Been there and DONE with that.

It's a cafeteria style restaurant where you order and pickup your food from the counter. It was quick but they only had pork on Monday, no beef or even ribs. The pork was dry with no flavor. No Okra, very Disappointing.

Sliced BBQ was not slices, but slivers of lean pork & not an iota of fat or pork flavor. It was only partially tender, but that didn't save it. Chopped BBQ had a bit more barbecue flavor, with some discernible fat, but was still not up to other restaurants' barbecue. Fish sandwich had good crumby crust but was mushy and... More

Their bbq and hush puppies are always good BUT their desserts are awful. We had tried the peach cobbler which is very bland in the past. Canned peaches, canned peach juice and a very thin, tastes like lard, crust. No butter and no sugar. Nothing on the crust to help its flavor either. Said OK, the banana pudding is listed... More
