Have you ever wondered
"Who is Mr. Barbecue?"
We can tell you. He's our employees and our suppliers. Our customers and our community. Our family and our legacy.
Who is Mr. Barbecue?
You are! Since 1962.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATRONAGE AND INTEREST IN WANTING TO KNOW ABOUT THE HISTORY OF OUR RESTAURANT.
Mr. Barbecue was founded in 1962, by Andy and Nick Carros along with Tom Gallos. Our outstanding food got even better in 1965 when Joe Pope and Leo Miller, renowned NC Pitmasters, joined the Mr. BBQ family and shared their famous recipes. Recipes that are so special and award-winning that we use them to this day!
Mr. Barbecue remains a family business, with Jimmy Carros, the son of Nick Carros, taking the reins. Jimmy is as passionate about serving world-class barbecue as his father and uncle before him!
Here at Mr. Barbecue, we offer you our very best in service and value.
We use only the finest Hickory wood in our barbecue pits, along with our special recipes developed over 50 years to create an experience that you'll never forget!
We slow-cook our pork to perfection and make every item from scratch.
We know you'll be able to taste the difference.
From our hushpuppies and banana pudding to our amazing sweet tea, everything is custom-prepared the day you order it.
Come by and visit us today at 1381 Peters Creek Parkway! And while you're here, join thousands of other people in taking a selfie in front of one of North Carolina's most iconic landmarks, our historic Mr. Barbeque sign.
