What's the name of the White House BBQ with 70's/80's New York Yankees photos in the Raleigh-Durham area?

I went to a BBQ place in 1999 in the Raleigh-Durham area and can't remember the name of it. I was driven there by a friend attending school in the area (who I've lost touch with).

From my recollection, it was in a large converted white house off the beaten path. The structure was fairly open inside to allow for seating.

You had to wait in line before you were seated and there were a large number of celebrity photos near the line. I particularly recall a number of pictures of the New York Yankees from the 70's or 80's who apparently must have visited this restaurant. Maybe we had to cross some train tracks to get there?

I also recall having an endless supply of hush puppies (my first!) brought to the table. Perhaps this last piece describes many of the BBQ places in the area.

I've wondered for years what the name of the place that served me my first hush puppy was!

Hopefully this is enough to go on - thanks in advance.

    The restaurant you remember is Bullock's BBQ. The photos were from Yankee games played at UNC when Jenny Steinbrenner, George's daughter, was a student there.

      Here's a photo of Bullock's. I always thought of it as more of a brick building than a white house, but it does have a white "porch" on the front. They do have pictures of many celebrity customers in the lobby area....

        Perhaps my recollection isn't as good I thought it was. I'm still happy to have found it. Thanks for the replies!

          It might have been Don Murray's on Capital Boulevard in Raleigh which closed a couple of years ago. It had a white exterior like you are describing. They offered AYCE with chicken and BBQ and all the side dishes.
