Can you suggest great places for barbeque in Raleigh, NC?
My husband, a teacher, will be there with three hungry students (high school age boys) this weekend. Two members of this small group will celebrate their birthdays on April 16 and they want barbeque on the big day.
Can you suggest any good bbq places in Raleigh, or not too far out of Raleigh? Holes-in-the-wall are fine----it's all about taste for them.
Here ya go. Bon Appetit.
Barbecue Lodge @ 4600 Capital Blvd., Raleigh, NC. 919 - 872 - 4755. *

Not a fan of Barbecue Lodge - their catering is ok, but the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired.
I live in Raleigh. If I want less expensive BBQ in a traditional setting close to home I go to Knightdale Seafood and BBQ.
If I want to spend a little more and have fancier digs (and better meats) I go to The Pit.
If I have plenty of time I go to Allen & Sons or to Rubs (not sure if this is still the name) in Morrisville.
Rubs is good, but not eastern style. They have somewhat limited hours, so call first.

Unfortunately, I must disagree. Not worth driving from Raleigh when you have Coopers, Holdens (in Wake Forest), and to a certain extent, the Pit (I have issues with the availability of biscuits or hushpuppies there, as well as repeated service failures). I live in Orange county, and would rather drive to Raleigh to get BBQ than go to Allen & Son.
I'll go against the usual suspects. I'm southern but also like Qs from other areas.
I suggest The Q Shack because their sides are great.
And, if you regular posters haven't tried it, give Shane's Rib Shack a shot.
Try the sampler with outstanding ribs and chicken with the chopped pork.
Next to triangle Town Center.
