Allen and Son Bar-B-Q in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Tom Armitage | Dec 11, 2000 08:02 PM

A recent trip to Durham provided an opportunity to eat some cue at Allen and Son. Unfortunately, time didn't allow travelling to the Pittsboro location, which is reputedly the best, so I "settled" for the Chapel Hill location on Airport Road. I thought the barbecue was totally wonderful, with just the right balance of vinegar and pepper that accented, but didn't overwhelm, the taste of the pork. I relished every bite. Good pups too. French fries were soggy and pretty awful. Onion rings and slaw were good. The Brunswick stew was nothing special. (Where does one go for a knockout Brunswick stew?) Coconut pie was good.

I'm not an expert on North Carolina barbecue in general, or on eastern N.C. cue specifically, but I'd sure go back for more at Allen and Son anytime. Highly recommended.
