Love the smokey BBQ flavor that comes from authentic wood grilling. Recently used the brisket and a few left over ribs to make chili. It was quick, easy and the flavor was fantastic!

Not a fans of chains, so this local restaurant fits what I love. Someone has passion for authentic BBQ and you can smell it as you walk in. Limited menu but what they offer is what they do best. Home made sauce was great, ribs just fell off the bone. Smoked sausage was juicy and full of flavor.

A great place to stop on the run to get fabulous smoked bar-b-que sandwiches. I have stopped here for several years at the Maryland / Delaware border. Unfortunately they have closed. I don't know if they have a new location.

When we have a group of people over they have the best barbeque beef, and, turkey. They are not far from were we live and, are always very helpful.

The food is pretty good, not the best BBQ I've ever had but certainly far from the worst. I moved to the area from the Midwest about a year ago (where they KNOW their BBQ) and have been in search of a good barbecue restaurant. Although I've not tried them all, I've tried quite a few, Durham's is so far... More

Durhams has a wide variety of barbecue selections. All are great. Sauce is very good. This is counter service so no service rating

We have been here many times before and their food is very good. We "miss" their log cabin restaurant but quality of food is just as good. I only thing is that they don't have pulled pork, they have BBQ pork loin.

In an area where good barbecue is rarer than an honest politician, Durham's is a real treasure. All the meats are good! Their sauces are good, too.

Unpretentious barbeque, no need for sauce on the ribs. Large pork ribs, deep smoke into the meat. Sides were great - kachel and cheese homemade as was cornbread. Very generous portions. Will be back. Owner should think about adding collard greens as a side - I'm sure they'd do them right.

Thank Daniel S
