I know a lot of people ave yet to hear about this, but Stamey's is now serving breakfast, and wow, it is good.... The only think I don't care for is the gravy they're using for putting on the biscuit. It is not a white country gravy, but although having a good flavor, is more like a gravy you would... More

Stamey's Barbecue at the Coliseum has begun serving breakfast, and it is worth trying. The biscuits were light, and fluffy with a golden crust. The tenderloin was fork tender, dipped into gravy and nicely seasoned. Ask for it to be dipped in the gravy (free), or order a side of gravy if you need extra. I asked for lightly scrambled... More

I like Stamey's but this visit wasn't as good as in the past. It's still good though. Quick service and cheap eats. Hush puppies are very good- light and not greasy. Brunswick Stew is worth getting too. Wish they'd offer another 1-2 BBQ sauce choices.

While visiting friends they suggested Stamey's for dinner. We had the chopped pork platter. The platter came with hush puppies and cole slaw. The cole slaw had a nice tang to it and the hush puppies had a nice flavor with out being greasy. The chopped pork had that nice vinegary flavor consistent with eastern BBQ. Good solid BBQ at...

We decided to try Stamey's for breakfast after voting at the Coliseum and it was fantastic! True, they don't have a large menu but it is quite sufficient- and it is good! I ordered the bacon and eggs, and my friend ordered sausage and eggs. The eggs were cooked just as we ordered them, and I got 3 pieces of... More

Although I've spent the past 25++ years eating and loving Stamey's BBQ, you never really appreciate just how good it is until you move away from that area and are forced to eat what "Other Cities" call BBQ. Stamey's serves "REAL" "GENUINE" Pork Bar-B-Que, and REAL BBQ Slaw, which every self respecting BBQ connoisseur knows to be the ONLY kind... More

This was my second time here for lunch. Great NC vinegar based BBQ sandwich served on a bun with coleslaw and fries. Good prices. They can push tables together to fit larger parties. Food is served pretty quickly, too.

Took a friend from out of the area here to have real honest to God NC BBQ and they left a full happy convert. Honest good food with no frills. The hush puppies will bring tears to your eyes they are so good. Toss in a peach cobbler for desert and you have found the Southern promised land. A must... More

Description
Most barbecue restaurants have introduced gas or electric cooking methods, but not us! We still slow cook our barbecue over a pit of hardwood hickory coals. The brick pits are completely enclosed, except for a bit of breathing room at the bottom. The hardwood coals are carefully monitored because they will dry the face of the pork if they get too hot. As each 15-pound pork shoulder cooks, the drippings fall onto the hot coals, sending the hickory smoke flavor into the pork. Once the tender pork is done, it is chopped or sliced to order, ensuring the freshest plate for our customers. No meal is complete without at least some of Stamey's keys to lasting barbecue success: Wood Cooked Pork Barbecue, Smiling service, Stamey's slaw, Fresh Brewed Sweet tea, Homemade cobbler and Hot Hushpuppies (introduced to North Carolina barbecue diners by founder Warner Stamey, himself!)
