The place is an institution, and I am fortunate enough to live in town. Drop in for a quick lunch, chopped pork BBQ sandwich, or BBQ plate. They also do chicken but the pig is the staple here. Smoked right out back. Don't forget to order yourself some cobbler too!

I've been to stameys hundreds of times during my life. I think it's delicious! Their barbecue is spot on every time and I love their hot dog chili. This last time I was even lucky enough to buy some shirts to commemorate my visit!

The Stamey's on Gate CIty Blvd. used to be the place where my mom and I spend special time together. I went in there today, and let tell you, it was SO BAD!! The brunswick stew was watery and the barbecue was hard and crunchy. Wasted my time and money.

Scarily fast service, decent food. Can't say I was blown away, but also can't say I was disappointed.

Stamey's Barbecue is good ole North Carolina barbecue with red sauce, slaw, and Texas Pete for that kick of flavor. You can order it in a hamburger bun or sliced and chopped with french fries and hush puppies, so yummy. Stameys also has barbecue chicken and brunswick stew, great on those cold nights. The very best part of tis restaurant... More

Restaurant was clean. Wait staff was friendly. Food came fast. Not the best barbeque I have ever had but the prices are fair and the food is good. Kids meals are a great value. My son loved the barbeque dog. (Chopped barbeque inside a hot dog bun). Was easier for him to eat. He gobbled it down in no time.

I grew up on Stamey's. They have the best BBQ that you will ever put in your mouth. Their slaw is a little spicy and pairs perfectly with the BBQ and the Lexington style BBQ sauce. As the winter months roll through, I find myself craving their wonderful Brunswick Stew. It is purely divine. This is the only place to... More

When a place has such a limited menu you'd think they could do all of those things well. Not here. The BBQ sandwich is decent, as is the chopped bbq, but the Chicken-que was so bland. The fries are mediocre as well. Cheap and fast, but better bbq elsewhere.

Walking in this restaurant is like taking a step back in time. Older decor and lots of southern hospitality. Delicious BBQ that is also available for take out. The prices are so reasonable for the quality and taste of this food! They also have great hotdogs and delicious Brunswick stew. I eat the stew all year round, it is so... More

Fantastic service and staff with even better BBQ! The place gets crowded and sometimes there is a line but they move people in and out (through great service) in a hurry so if you are hungry don't let a line hold you back. You will be seated sooner than you think. Excellent and authentic Lexington Style BBQ (the pride of... More
