A Raleigh YELP search for a BBQ place to eat at came up with Backyard BBQ Pit...rated 4 1/2 stars. We drove up and walked right in. The smell of BBQ was definitely in the air. Everyone was very friendly and could tell we were out of towners. Did we look a little out of place!?! We asked what the big sellers were and they told us the brisket and pulled pork.
Squirrel Hunter opted for the pulled pork and BBQ chicken with green beans and mac'n'cheese.
I ordered the pulled pork, green beans, cabbage...the collard greens were sold out and hush puppies.
This is a small family business and their BBQ is excellent. Enjoyed their vinegar based BBQ sauce that had a slight spiciness to it. The Mac'n'Cheese was made with real cheese and quite yummy. The green beans were your typical southern style beans, very favorful. The hush puppies were perfection. If you are looking for a fancy, tablecloth restaurant with cloth napkins this is not your type of place. It is a real, family run Southern gem. High on taste and down home comfort food!
