Serving up the best BBQ in Winston-Salem, NC

Who is Mr. Barbecue? You are!

Mr. Barbecue has been serving delicious barbecue in Winston-Salem for many years. 

In addition to our newly renovated  dining space, we offer drive-through and catering services as well and will soon be offering online ordering.

We continue to use recipes that originated in Lexington, NC, and have been passed down for generations from pitmaster to pitmaster. Our food is made from scratch, and our meats are hickory-smoked in our traditional brick barbecue pits. Thank you, Winston-Salem for supporting us for 60 years!

I used to go to Mr BBQ back in the '70s. They've done a refresh of the restaurant and they now have outside dining. The food still taste great and I really love the hush puppies and the barbecue sauce. While you're outside you can smell the wood burning that they use to smoke the barbecue.

Always fantastic BBQ and sides every time I come to Winston Salem. I tend to prefer the tomato based BBQ sauce of my side of NC, but they have the best vinegar based BBQ sauce I've ever had. Drinks are always properly carbonated, and their pies are the perfect dessert. Love this place!

Very good fresh hot food and good service. Great for hamburgers, fried chicken, hotdogs and barbecue. This restaurant has been a Winston Salem favorite for many years, it has been opened since 1962.

We stopped here for the first time while shopping in the area hoping to get good BBQ and man was it delicious. I got a BBQ sandwich with slaw and a side of hush puppies while my wife got a flounder sandwich and collard greens as a side. Everything was excellent including the service. We also bought 2 containers of Brunswick stew that we ate for dinner that same night and it was the best Brunswick stew we ever had. We can't wait to go back.

The Mr. Barbecue Experience (Drive-thru Edition)... I arrived at Mr. Barbecue somewhat early to beat the lunchtime traffic. I had not been to Mr. Barbecue in years before the remodel. I do like the new look of the restaurant. The drive-thru moved swiftly, and I was at the window paying in no time. I ordered their chopped BBQ plate with baked beans, coleslaw, and hush puppies. When I got back to my location to eat, I was not ready for the amount of food I saw once opening the lid. I had a nice-sized portion of food, and everything was delicious. I could not finish it all for lunch and saved the remaining for dinner.
Exceptional food and quick service. My favorite selection is a chopped barbecue plate, brimming with french fries and hushpuppies. Wash it down with some southern-style sweet iced tea. Mr. Barbecue has been serving up a great recipe in Winston-Salem for many decades.
