Hursey's Pig Pickin' Bar-B-Q (Burlington location)

Featured in Our State
Address: 
1834 South Church Street, Burlington, NC 27215

From its humble backyard beginnings, Hursey’s has become something of a pork powerhouse. There are now several locations in and around Burlington, billboards on Interstates 85 and 40, and there’s a wholesale plant out on N.C. Highway 87, where chili and dipping sauce and pork shoulders are cooked in quantities that will astound you. Barbecue is nothing without a pit, sauce, family, and a legend, and here it's a cross between Lexington-style and eastern-style. This restaurant is on The North Carolina Barbecue Society Historic Trail.

Can't-Miss Menu Item: Hush puppies

Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Closed Sunday.
