First time here and the service was excellent and food was outstanding! Greeted immediately as I sat down and dinner plate arrived shortly after ordering. Excellent service provided by Seth. Highly recommend this place. You won’t be disappointed. Ordered the 3/4 3 meat dinner plate with Spicy Hot Link/Pulled Pork/Ribs which comes w/ 2 sides (Fried Spicy Green Beans and Cheddar Jalepeno Poppers. Also ordered 3 extra ribs. More...

We are from Texas, so we love BBQ. We ventured out from the casino to find some different options and saw this place! BBQ for breakfast?!? Yes please!! The brisket omelette was amazing. My daughter got the peanut butter French toast which was Devine as well. Biscuits and gravy with crumbled sausage on top was delish. We will definitely be back!! More...

Not your average bbq joint. Best one I have ever went to. They also cook up battered fried green beans, okra, potatoes and just about anything you can think of. Truly delicious food.

We visited a few days ago while visiting family, Lindsey was our server. She was AWESOME. She was so sweet and attentive. Our daughter loved her! If you happen to go here, ask for her! One of the best servers I’ve had in a long time!! More...

Good, solid barbecue. Had the ribs, smoked sausage, mac and cheese and spicy fried green beans. The latter and all the sides are really outstanding. The ribs are St. Louis style, and the sauces they have are really yummy, especially the smokey. The brisket was the only disappointing part. We got it sliced and it was a bit dry.The service is attentive and friendly, the place is homey and welcoming. More...

The service was excellent. The food was heavenly. The pulled pork sandwich and the brisket were both excellent. The waffle fries were perfectly crispy on the outside while being soft inside.

The best food in town. Clearly the bbq is bomb but the real secret is the sides. The breakfast potatoes are addicting. The macaroni and cheese is the cheesiest and the fried okra is perfection.

Stopped in today, skeptical of course, bc I'm from KC, home of the best! I wanted to try all the foods so naturally I ordered the 3 meat plate. fried okra was to die for, nice fall off the bone ribs, pulled pork was everything it should be, chicken was not at all dry. And the best part?... it was cooked the way it should be, dry spice rub not dripping wet in sauce. I requested the spicy sauce and it was perfect! You made this bbq snob happy today! and the service was great too ! More...

Main Street Barbecue was definitely worth the trip.I've sampled dozens of BBQ joints between Tennessee to New Mexico, South Dakota to the Gulf.Definitely top 5.Didn't need the sauce, Preparation, flavor & serving temp was spot on. Great tasting sides. Staffing is designed to accommodate without being overbearing, perfect! To top it off, the price(s) was very reasonable as compared to other establishments I've visited. Parking area could use a overhaul but I'm there to eat, not the truck.FYI: Charlie Vergos' Rendezvous, Memphis, Tn is still #1 on my list & that's a tall order to beat, but you came close, KUDOS!

5 STARS⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It was like the best pot roast ever on a bone!!! The perfect amount of fat in this thing was just around the corner of melting but held strong until it hit your mouth. Plus they had mild (delicious), smokey (holy-moly), spicy (gotta have it), and I don't care for mustard based bbq sauce but the beef rib came with it on the side and HELLO!!!!, I WAS IN A DIPPING FRENZY!!! The country green beans stayed hot in that bowl till the end and were perfect, the mashed potatoes and stout brown gravy were black peppered just right and did not get cold and lose their vibe like some places do. Yall, this was just MY plate!!! My daughter's stuffed Baker potato was bigger than her noggin!!! Her face went full on smiles when they brought it out because she LOVES a good baked potato Great job Sunday crew!!! More...

I received a recommendation to visit Main Street Barbeque from some co-workers when I was in Durant for work. I ordered the fish sandwich with the spicy fried green beans and mac 'n cheese. Everything was incredible. The sandwich is one my new favorite things to eat - something I'll come back for every time I'm in Durant. It's a thin fish filet (catfish, I'm assuming) on a soft, toasted hoagie bun with coleslaw and tarter sauce, one of which is sweet (which I LOVED). Fish was crispy and it made for one incredible sandwich. Green beans were breaded (maybe just a tad too thick, in my opinion) and fried with a spicy, crunchy batter. Mac 'n cheese was creamy, gooey, and delicious. Good service and only $14+change for the food and a drink. Can't wait to try more items next time! More...

The food is absolutely amazing, you can definitely tell they put a lot of love into their food and their service. Their waiters are kind, make experiences personal, and are an overall joy to be around. My experience was positive and I will come back again and again for the same delicious food, and quality service. More...

Food was amazing I ordered the rib and chicken plate with a loaded potato biggest potato I've ever seen before, rolls which were amazing hot and soft. Service was good. Food came out extremely fast.  Only thing was when you walk in you don't know if you seat yourself or not. Other than that it was a great experience. More...

Main Street BBQ not only has a delicious lunch and dinner menu- but their new breakfast is TO. DIE. FOR- one word- biscuits. I don't know how they do it but the biscuits are literally the best I've ever had. It's like biting into a delicious cloud. The Denver omelette, breakfast sandwich, and their potatoes that come as a side are all awesome choices! They are doing everything right when it comes to feel good food. A tasty Durant staple for certain! More...

When in Durant, OK you must eat here. Large portions at a great price; our to go box was full. Ribs and brisket were EXCELLLENT and the fried, spicey green beans are a must! Mac and cheese is truly homemade. Might have to stop there on our way out of town. More...

This restaurant has all of the qualities of great Oklahoma hospitality! The waitress asked if we had been in before and quickly offered us a sample of all of the meats! They were all wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed this place and hope to pass through again! More...

Best bbq I have ever had!  This is a must if you are in the Durant area. Great server! Told her it was our first visit, and she brought out a complementary plate of all the smoked meats to try so we could decide on what to order. Side dishes were awesome too. Will definitely be back. More...

Great food and great service, had most of the menu and not a bad thing yet. Only complaint is it's so hard to get in at lunch time, but hey can't fault them for being popular and having good food!!! Go check it out you won't be disappointed. Great portions, tasty sides, all of the que has a great smoke to it. More...

Really, really good bbq in downtown Durant. Food was served hot, nice selection of meats, sides are really good and everything was served hot. There's ample seating so don't let a crowded parking lot deter you- support local eateries. Well done Main St Bbq , I'll definitely be back. Had the pulled pork and smoked sausage, with the Southern style green beans and Mac and cheese. More...

Hands down the best BBQ ever! The stuffed baked potatoes are huge! Fried okra and onion rings are delicious sides! Not a baked potato fan? The chicken and fried fish are a great choice! More...

Excellent sliced brisket. Probably the most lean, yet still very moist that I've had. My husband raved about the smoked sausage. Fried okra and sweet potato fries were great also! More...

Pulled pork is AWESOME!!! Tender, juicy, beautiful bark. Ordered the 3 slider meal- 2 pulled pork & 1 chopped beef. BBQ sauce was sweet & tangy. We loved the okra. My hubby loved the potato salad, thought it was different for having bits of bacon in it. I loved the green beans- they had a delicious smokey taste. Wish this was closer to Austin-:(  will definitely come here again it we ever pass thru Durant, OK. More...

TRY THE MAC N' CHEESE!!!!!! Good BBQ, they offered spear shaped pickles as an appetizer and I'm not kidding when I tell you that was the best dill pickle of my life.   I got the pulled pork and got links, my friend got the ribs.  The 2 meat meal is around $12. More...

Best BBQ in Durant. Probably the best in Durant for lunch which may be why its sometimes hard to get a seat. Daily lunch specials are a great deal. Can't miss the ribs on Thursday. Perfectly smoked and tender. More...

This is a new favorite for our family! We are from Texas and have eaten a lot of BBQ and this place is excellent. We do a lot of traveling and never know what to expect with new places to eat, but we were all pleasantly surprised at how great the BBQ is at Main Street! This is not just a stop along the way place... this is a drive out of your way to get here place. Clean and friendly! Great service! And the food... yum! Ribs have a dry rub that's Awesome! They are meaty and not fatty. Smoked chicken was excellent... sliced in long strips and good cuts of meat. My daughter had the fried catfish and the crispy batter was a thin layer and it was almost as good as my dad's homemade catfish he catches and cooks himself. My son got the pulled pork and brisket... also a great choice! We got to chose our sauce and got the Smoky BBQ sauce and mild BBQ sauce - both delicious! We had to try the fried green beans after seeing the reviews on yelp - and we were not disappointed! We got these as an appetizer and dipped them in ranch and we all enjoyed them. They have a little bit of a kick that sets them apart. They are a must try! The Mac and cheese was creamy with a spiral noodle  (not Kraft) and delicious! My son usually likes Kraft said this might be his favorite macaroni and cheese ever. Fried Okra was crispy and good too. The sweet and unsweet tea tasted freshly brewed. They even offer "to go" drinks without asking. It was filling and we all left happy. They even have a drive through, but I'm glad we went inside to enjoy the friendly staff and customers and Texas decor. The wait was quick and I don't think I have anything negative to say. We will be going back for sure! More...

I love this place. Quaint with great simple food it is one of Durant's finest and a great place to take out of town company. My last meal was a 1/2 lb plate with ribs and smoked turkey and okra and mac n' cheese as sides. Don't miss this one! The ribs just fell off the bone! More...

29 May 2017

WOW - That was AMAZING!!!! So glad we ignored some of the reviews because this place is definitely going to be a regular stop when traveling this way!!! We started with the appetizer combo with spicy fried green beans, jalapeño cheese poppers, and the BEST corn fritters ever. For dinner, I had the pulled pork sandwich with okra & slaw (I didn't really care for the slaw, and knew it would be a wild card so not a big deal). My hubby had the ribs & brisket with spicy fried green beans & Mac n Cheese - ALL delicious!!! The service was spot on, the portions were big (we wanted to get dessert but we were absolutely stuffed to the gills). More...

Another hidden gem. The brisket was awesome the beans were so-so but was really there for the brisket would go there again!


Lane C.

The meats are terrific! The ribs didn't even need sauce and had great flavor. The brisket was very tender, low fat, and very high quality. The slaw was not my favorite, and I wouldn't count on finding many vegetables that are not fried :) But, the Mac and cheese was great, along with the fried green beans. More...

We were driving to Dallas and needed to find some dinner. Enter yelp and it did us right! Really good BBQ! We had the ribs, chopped brisket, sausage and hot links. Chopped brisket was my favorite but all were very good. The spicy fried green beans and the coleslaw were also great. Restaurant was nice and service was good. Would absolutely recommend this place!

On the drive down to Durant from OKC, I kept smelling smoke from fires.  Not sure what was going on there, but it made me crave barbecue. This was the first place I noticed on Yelp and it had really good reviews. My boss and I had a great experience here for lunch. The service was excellent and our food came out quickly. I had the 1/2 lb platter, and you can choose up to two meats. I got the smoked turkey and ribs. They were both delicious! I really like all of their sauces as well. The spicy one had just enough kick. This place has so many options for sides. It was really hard to decide, and I wanted to be slightly health conscious, so I only chose one of the fried options. Between the meats, corn fritters, southern style green beans and roll, I was pretty stuffed. All that for $13. Main Street Barbecue hit all the high notes for me. What a great find in this small town! More...

Delicious BBQ - some of the best I've ever had. We had to veer off the beaten path a little bit while passing through and it was well worth it.

Outstanding outstanding outstanding.....  whether you are heading North or South on 75 this place is worth stopping for lunch or dinner!  Food, portions, and service were great at a reasonable price.  Our table had the turkey, ribs, brisket, and pulled pork all highly recommended!  Try the baked potato ;0) More...

We loved this BBQ place!  We were driving from Tulsa to Dallas and this place was along the way.  When we arrived we were greeted warmly and promptly.  Because we were new and debating which meats to get, they brought us a complimentary "sampler" of 9 meats.  My husband and I agreed that they were all delicious and we ordered sliders with 3 different meats each.  The only downside is that they were out of corn fritters which I would have liked to have tried.  Service was friendly and efficient.  Highly recommend.

Best barbecue place around! Hard to beat. You must give it a try! Excellent smoked chicken and smoked turkey. Love the corn fritters and sweet tea. Barbecue beans are a great choice too. The only thing I have tried that I didn't like was the cole slaw. More...


Matt J.

16 November 2016

Since my first review, I was talked back into going here, and I am glad I did. Maybe it was an off night when I went before. The food since then has been great, for the most part. They have lunch specials everyday for $10 even on the weekend which nobody has. You don't get to pick your main course but it's still hard to beat on the weekend. The best special in my opinion is on Friday, catfish and ribs. For a BBQ place, it is some of the best catfish I have ever eaten, imo the ribs take a back seat to the catfish, but the ribs are really good. It comes with coleslaw, get a different side. This is the only thing I will say is not good. I don't know anyone who likes it, they need to change their slaw recipe. Check out main street for lunch, especially on Friday. More...


Wacomac M.

This was absolutely the best BBQ. I have had in long time. Ask for a sample plate. Enjoy all the flavors. Plus the Catfish is so good. I did not expect that. If in Durant it is a must stop destination. Service is exceptional and the food is wonderful. Oh check out the Pit put back!!! More...


Travis H.

10 November 2016

Best chopped Brisket in Oklahoma, Texas, or Arkansas!! Their Smoky BBQ sauce is phenomenal if you like sweet sauce!!! I've been 3 times in the last 6 months and the food and service is always consistent and on point!  If you go, you have to try their fried green beans.(battered with something like a beer batter, with bacon bits and a little bit of spicy pepper in the batter....YUM!!!)EXCELLENT BBQ!! I Highly recommend it!!! More...

Found Main Street BBQ from Yelp and boy did we love it!The brisket was tender, moist and delicious!  I'm very particular about okra, I hate thick breading! So I order it apprehensively.  Their okra was perfect and tasted homemade not frozen. The coating is light and flakey which lets you taste the okra, and the okra was perfectly done. I also got the bbq baked beans and they were really good. In addition I got the hot links, they were spicy but seemed dry, not sure I would get them again. I'm used to EastTexas style which are  moist and juicy.My wife ordered the sliders, with sausage, turkey and chopped brisket, she thought they were all moist and delicious and loved the rolls they were on.Her sides were the spicy green beans and the corn nuggets.  The spicy green beans were so amazing, I had to steal some.  They were homemade and the coating was thin and crispy much like the okra with just the right amount of heat.  The corn nuggets were good but seemed like the frozen kind instead of homemade.Overall this was an excellent experience and next time we are in Durant we will hit it up!

Thankful this place was on our way on our road trip. I had stopped here once before and was blown away. This is one of the best BBQ places I've experienced. While it is a little more expensive, the quality is excellent, the portion sizes are generous, and the service is great. I had the brisket and sausage plate with homemade mac n cheese and spicy fried green beans. The brisket ranks with the best I've had and the sides were very enjoyable. I can't wait to go back.

Good  - The brisket was good.  - The Baked potato was outstanding.Bad  - The Air Conditioner has been down for the past two weeks. Apparently it's not on the priority of things a business worries about.  - Temperature was 98 degrees inside and covered with flies.    Overall:  It's good ole fashioned dry brisket with pulled pork soaked in bbq sauce.  Not bad, but could use improvement.

My wife and I have eaten at Main Street BBQ a few times on trips to Durant.  We always try to eat at locally owned businesses in town rather than the cluster of chain restaurants crowded around the Walmart complex west of downtown or the other restaurants in and around the casino.  Each time we have eaten at Main Street BBQ the food has been excellent and the service has been great.  The BBQ is always smoked perfectly and tender.  The sides are always good too.We would not hesitate to go back to Main Street BBQ and probably will on a future trip.  Support local business owners!!!

30 May 2016

I can only comment on what we tried but everything that we ate was great! Smoked chicken, Smoked Sausage, Hot Links, Sliced Brisket, and Smoked Pit Ham were all excellent, juicy, and pretty flavorful. The chicken surprised me the most! Well smoked, not as dry as I expected based on a couple of reviews, and it was tender! I loved the hot link because it was spicy but not overpowering and it was cooked well. The sweet tea was fresh brewed and not too sweet not was is too bland, just right! The sides made everything complete... The spicy fried green beans are a MUST and the fried okra was great! The rolls served with the dinner plates were great as well! This Texan gives this little BBQ joint a 5/5 for our dining experience on this Memorial Day! God Bless America  and Thank you to my fellow brothers and sisters in arms that made the ultimate sacrifice for this country. More...

Everything was good. I had St. Louis ribs, and smoked hot links. Loaded bake potato was the size of a football. Sides of jalapeño poppers and corn fritters were amazing. The only negative was they were out of Shiner. More...

I was in town with time to kill and my camera as my wife had a meeting in town yesterday.  I came upon this place and noticed a steady stream of customers around 1:30pm and the great smell from the pit.  I ordered a brisket sandwich with fries and BBQ beans and everything was perfect.  Some of the best brisket I have ever had and I used to BBQ competitively. If this place were closer to the highway they would run out of food at 1pm every day. More...


Azim D.

4 February 2016

Since I'm from the south, I have pretty high standards for BBQ and the meat here just didn't live up to expectations. The brisket lacked flavor and wasn't very moist and the turkey and chicken were both under-seasoned and on the dry side. The sides were great though, and saved our meal. We had the fried okra, corn fritters, jalapeño poppers and mac and cheese. All of them were fantastic and we had trouble deciding which ones to order as they offer a large variety of sides. Service was good and the food arrived promptly but I can't give a BBQ place 5 stars if the meat is just average. More...


Malcolm R.

30 January 2016

Here's the deal. This place has exceptional BBQ, but the sides are what makes this joint stand out.  Corn fritters and fried green beans are fantastic. The bonus is all the pretty smiling wait staff with hometown charm. More...


Jeff R.

12 January 2016

Didn't get the chance to eat inside because it was packed. It's a good sign for someone from out of town. I went through the drive thru. The sliced beef sandwich and the hot BBQ sauce was great and the sweet beans were fantastic. I'll be sure to hit this place a little earlier so I can eat inside. I'll be back More...

I can't remember when I've had better bar b q or better service. Kelsey, our server, was amazing. She brought us a tasting plate of all the meats so we could decide which we wanted. She was the best and we're looking into adopting her. As I said, the food was terrific and I ate way too much. The prices were very very reasonable. I can't say enough good things about our meal...love the place and, although I live in Las Vegas, I'll definitely find my way back one day. More...

Very tasty BBQ, friendly staff, reasonable prices!  They have a great combination plate (mini-buns) where you can try a variety of different meats if you can't make up your mind.  The homemade sides were all great.  Would definitely return! More...

Everything here is good.  The ribs, the pulled pork, the brisket, the smoked sausage.  I had fried pickles which it turns out are wonderful.  They have Shiner on tap and serve it so cold it starts to freeze inside the glass.  But . . .. . . the fried catfish is amazing.  I am not generally a big fan of fried catfish.  I don't dislike it or anything like that, but it always just seems like a mediocre fried fish.  But the dish has been elevated to high art at Main Street.  Imagine what we all like about fried chicken: the taste and texture of the skin.  Right?  Now imagine a magical chicken that is almost all skin.  No bones, very little flesh.  Just crispy, chewy, delicious fried chicken skin with a paper thin layer of flakey white flesh in between.  Now imagine this magical mutant bird has almost no grease.  Are you with me?  It's amazing!  You must eat this chimerical fish!

Have eaten here several times over last year. Corn fritters and spicy deep fried green are fantastic! I enjoy the chopped beef meat better than the pulled pork. BBQ sauces are smokey and regular . Staff is very attentive and fast on getting food out. Two tvs on football for a Saturday afternoon! More...

Good BBQ and good sauce. Brisket was tender and the smoked sausage was very flavorful. Sides were obviously homemade and you could tell someone cared about the quality of the food. On top of the good food, the staff is extremely friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. If you are in Durant it is definitely a place you should try. More...

After 52 years of living in Texas, Minnesota, and everywhere in between, I found the definitively best ribs in all the land, here at Mainstreet. Along with world-class ribs, they offer excellent brisket, hot links, okra, and sweet tea. You cannot go wrong on their rich menu. The price is very fair, and the staff, especially Dustin, is as good as it gets. I now live in Minnesota and stopped here on my way to drop my 18 year old off at college in Texas, my homeland. We found Mainstreet because of the high praise online and couldn't leave without posting some ourselves. Phenomenal service, world-class food, good prices. In short, stop here. It will be worth your time. More...

Main Street BBQ is my favorite BBQ restaurant ever! I would even say that it's better than Earl's BBQ in OKC!!! The corn fritters and smoked sausage are to die for! They just know how to make some good southern BBQ! Every time I eat here I am more than satisfied with my meal! All the girls that work here are really sweet too. Never had bad service. If you're looking for real southern food, this is the place to go!! More...

VERY friendly folks in here.  As I pulled up, the owner(?)/pitmaster was at the pit, and I looked around the corner to make sure he was cooking over fire and smoke.  Once Wife and got seated, he came around with a "sample platter", saying that he could tell we were new to his place and that he wanted us to try everything beforre we ordered.  I've never seen that before!  But I'm glad he did as I changed up my order a bit.I got brisket and ribs while the wife got the pulled pork sandwich.  His ribs were great, with good flavor coming from his rub and definitely a smoke flavor in the meat.  Amongst the best I've had anywhere, even from the self proclaimed rib capital of Memphis (very good but still not as good as mine!!).  Very, very tender meat that came clean off of the bone (I do not undestand the competition standard of needing the "bite".  Personally, I'd rather have "fall off the bone" and I think most of y'all would, too). And they definitely did not need sauce.  The brisket was tender and had decent flavor, but it was a little dry and on the crumbly side as far as texture (definitely not as good as mine).  The wife enjoyed her pulled pork sandwich and had a hard time eating it all (the cubes of his pork on our sample platter were very good for smoked pork).I also got the jalapeno poppers and barbeque beans for my sides.  The poppers seemed to be frozen, but they came out hot from the fryer and were enjoyable for frozen poppers.  The BBQ beans were decent but didn't show a lot of imagination, just pinto beans with a few pieces of meat and some BBW sauce added for smokey flavor.  He can ask my wife for her BBQ bean recipe sometime.  I did try a couple of my wife's onion rings and they were very good and tender, would have to say they were made in-house.Overall, we had excellent service with a team style, and the meat was very good.  I would most definitely eat here again to load up on his ribs.  And next time to try more of his sausage.  The sample bites we had were excellent as well.

Love the atmosphere and the service is always good. The sliders are very good. Tasty little buns and you can get three different meats. The fried green beans are good but in my humble opinion they should make their own Ranch dressing.. Delicious barbecue and great sauce! Very cute place! More...

Absolutely great food, brisket with spicy green beans... I'm sad I now live 13 hours away but if I'm ever remotely close I will stop in not only for the food but the owners are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet!

We were in Durant 11/21/14 for my husband's birthday and needed a nice place to eat for dinner.  We ended up at Main Street Barbecue thanks to a recommendation from the front desk clerk at Choctaw Inn.  It's a cute little place in Downtown Durant.  The first thing my husband and I noticed on the menu was $3.50 Shiner Bock, they bring it to you in a Giant frosty mug.  We ordered the Jalapeno poppers for an appetizer and they were very good.  Nice large Jalapenos and super tasty.  For my entree  I ordered brisket and sausage, with sides of mashed potatoes and fried okra.  My husband ordered brisket and ribs.  Both came with probably the best roll I have ever had.  The servings were huge and we ordered the 1/2 pound plates.  All the meats were super flavorful and tender, the sides were all delicious as well.  To top it all off the service here was really great, everyone was very friendly and attentive.This will be our go to place when we are in town from now on, no more eating at the Casino.  It was worth the short 5 minute drive.  My only complaint is that I wish this place was in Dallas!

We were in the Durant area last month and decided on Main Street Barbecue after reading the other reviews. Our waitress, Madison, had the BEST customer service. I had let her know it was our first time there and asked her recommendations. After placing our lunch order the she came back with a rib for each of us since we didn't order them and could know what they taste like for future reference. (And now I know I will return to order the ribs!- tender and just right!) My husband ordered a meat plate (chose turkey, ham, & brisket) with cole slaw. I ordered sliders (chose ham, brisket, & pulled pork) which were the perfect size (Hawaiian rolls) and delicious. My side of bbq beans were good and sweet and the fried green beans were as good as the other reviews had said. We were beyond stuffed. We will be in the area again this weekend and look forward to returning to Main Street Bbq. More...

I haven't ever gotten anything here I didn't like.  Great service and food. Definitely the best place to get BBQ in Durant.  My favorite is the catfish and they make a homemade tarter sauce that is amazing More...

While on our drive from Indiana to Dallas to the Final Four, we couldn't wait til we got there to try some authentic BBQ. Hit up Yelp and found this place....all I can say is WOW!  I wasn't sure what to expect from a small town in OK, but man was this good!  It was lunch time, and the place was hopping, so I knew that was a good sign.  Very nice, clean place...the service was INCREDIBLE...I wasnt sure who our waitress was, because I was contantly being helped for refills, etc.  Loved that.Oh...yeah...the food.....perfect....got brisket and pulled pork.  I was in BBQ heaven!

Adorable place with fantastic barbecue and sides.  The pulled pork and chicken were delicious and the ribs were "fall off the bone" amazing.  They have beer on tap and a couple of desserts.  The service was perfect.  We happened upon the place when two other restaurants were closed for Monday night and we were all glad we did.  It was a simple and affordable barbecue menu that we all really enjoyed.

We stopped into Main St BBQ based on a friend's recommendation - he was spot on, the bbq was very good, atmosphere easy going, and excellent service.  Recommended highly!

I'm a bit of a BBQ snob, but this place was really good. Got the three slider plate with ham, sausage and brisket. All very tasty and moist. Sweet potato fries were fantastic and barbecue beans were great as well. All around great meal! More...

I looked for good barbecue from North Carolina, to Florida - from Tennessee to Missouri and tried dozens. Tonight at Main Street the ribs were perfect... meaty, just the right amount of fat, the bones were just barely getting soft on the ends, and the meat was perfectly tender. You'll have to ask for the hot sauce, (which comes in individual special little open-neck bottles) regular and smoked are on the table.  I had the apple cider slaw, which, while not my favorite type, was really quite good and complimented the meat and sauces very well. For my second side dish, I had the mashed potatoes, which Main Street prepares with the skins on. This success of this dish really depends on the type of potato used, and being careful not to overcook them.   This dish tasted fine, but mouth feel was a little pasty-gummy and the color was grey. If they were to switch to a dry, mealy potato this could be as good as the other choices I made.  I did not try a dessert. The staff was very friendly and happy - you could tell they enjoyed working together as a team. More...
