In an area where good barbecue is rarer than an honest politician, Durham's is a real treasure. All the meats are good! Their sauces are good, too.

Unpretentious barbeque, no need for sauce on the ribs. Large pork ribs, deep smoke into the meat. Sides were great - kachel and cheese homemade as was cornbread. Very generous portions. Will be back. Owner should think about adding collard greens as a side - I'm sure they'd do them right.

This is a review on three different visits all about a week apart. The new place has seating for about a dozen people, had lunch there with three other friends. I acted as the waiter since it's place orders at the counter, get food at the window, the service was great (and my friends are lousy tippers). We all got... More

Durham's is no longer at the location in the picture (that is now a nail salon). About two years ago, it moved around the block into a larger space that has some basic seating unlike the old little hut. Everything is good (smoked chicken, ribs, brisket, kielbasa), the cornbread is the sweet style and the beans are a favorite of... More

I guess they had to move, from a Log Cabin to a shopping center. The food doesn't seem to be the same. The smells are similar but the layout is a bit different and it doesn't appear that you are part of the place now, when in the old location, it was so small that you felt like you were... More

The barbecue here is fantastic! Prices are little pricey but the meat portions are very generous! You wont be hungry when you leave. Its more of a takeout place-not an eat-in place

Been here before for very tasty BBQ. This time I had a Brisket sandwich with their sweet BBQ sauce. Well smoked and quite delicious. They also smoke some excellent turkey and ham. I always order from for my son's Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet. Only issue, I feel for the price of the sandwich combo special they can throw... More

Food is really good. Better before they switched locations but still very good. Prices have always been reasonable. Sanitary and good service. I recommend to everyone new to our area.

My wife and I heard good things about this place, so we decided to try it out. I got the pulled pork and she got the ribs. They were both on the dry side. The sauce at the table was like water and had little taste. The floor was dirty, it had not been cleaned for a week. The man... More

I totally agree with reviewer "awampler". Durham's food is a good contender in the area. However the shop can use some regular cleaning and a way to repel the many flies inside. Additionally customer service is sorely lacking. I don't go there very often on account of these reasons.
