Mr. Stamey is a little full of himself. He may have been the first BBQ restaurant in the area to serve them, but hushpuppies have been around in the south since the 1800s.


I tried Stameys years ago. Can't remember the details. Need a 2nd opinion!

I live here and avoid Stamey's but end up eating it a few times a year. Country BBQ on Wendover is much better in my opinion and I always order mine without sauce.

To be honest tho..I thought Stameys was very good...it had the smoked hickory wood flavor and the sauce was on the table... for you to add or not

The Pork Tenderloin Biscuit at Country BBQ is great....not Taylor Ham, egg and cheese on a hard roll with salt pepper and ketchup but still great in its class

Quick question:

Need to run to Creedmoor around lunchtime today. Will be right across the street from Bob's.

What "sides" do they offer there? Any vegetables? Something not deep fried or breaded? A lot of places offer slaw, fries, and maybe fried okra. I need something like green beans....yay! But I really want to try a plate of the que.

Bob's has a good selection of veggies/sides. All the standards and a daily assortment - green beans, okra, cabbage, greens, etc.

I stopped by Bob's and had a plate of que and green beans. Not great, but not terrible either. Probably would have tasted better with french fries and hush puppies! The que was moist, and lightly seasoned. But not smoky at all. Would be great piled up with slaw on a bun!

Bob's used to be more consistently better. I've been there dozens of times meeting my dad halfway between here and where he used to live. Lately, it's been more hit/miss. Never bad, but not inspiring, if that makes sense. On the other hand, there's no place I'd rather eat fried pork chops than here and their fried shrimp is pretty tasty.

Now this is a first. We took off for a ride on a gorgeous end of Spring Saturday. Had a barbecue place mapped out that I'd never been to before. Up in the north eastern part of NC between Louisburg and Roanoke Rapids.

Pulled into:


The "restaurant" - they take the right portion of the building from the OPEN sign over.


Walked up to the window. Asked if they had a restroom I could use to wash up. They said "no" but suggested I try next door at the garage - if they were still open.

Walked back over. Noticed no tables, no shade, not much of anything. We left. Rode around the area a little bit and headed back to Johnny's in Louisburg which has been reviewed here once or twice.

Pretty nice roads in the area, but there wasn't a chance I was going to actually pay for a dose of norovirus today. First time in my life I've pulled into a barbecue place and left without ordering even a bottled drink.
