Reviews

  • 5 star review  We visited this place on a recommendation from the front desk clerk at the Best Western we're staying at up the street. We were beyond impressed by the friendliness of the staff, the taste of the food and the portion sizes. The ribs were fall of the bone tender, the catfish was delicious. My husband got a baked potato and corn on the cob as his sides. We expected a small potato and a small chunk of corn. Nope... large baked potato the size of the plate and a full ear of corn. Macaroni and cheese is clearly homemade and delicious and while the fried pickle spears are a little floppy, they have the perfect amount of crunch and tart. Perhaps the only disappointment if you want to call it that is that the sweet tea isn't as sweet as we're used to. Would definitely recommend and if we were going to be in town longer, we would be planning to eat here again.

  • 3 star review  If I could give it three and a half stars I would. The service is good and the atmosphere is comfortable but the pricing is too high for the size of the ribs that is served. I asked the waiter if there were bigger size ribs, he took my plate and brought me back ribs that were an eighth of an inch bigger. I won't go back. The ribs I was given were the size of a ladies finger, size six...

  • 5 star review  Had the Rib platter. It came with two sides so I got potatoe salad and BBQ beans. I got one mild sauce and one spicy as I wasnt sure which one was better. So the beans were pretty good, but they seemed to follow the theme of sweetness that goes most of the food served here. The potato salad was again good but kind of sweet. The ribs were the best part (as they should be) they were tender and cooked just right. The taste was very good. Some of the best ribs I've had in awhile. My meal came with six ribs and two sides for 12.99, which I thought was a great barging. Especially after tasting the ribs. So if your in Durant America and have a hankering for some BBQ definitely hit this place up.

  • 5 star review  Okay... I had brisket and some ribs from you guys this week and WOW... those were the best dang ribs I’ve ever put in my mouth! I am pretty picky about ribs and Main St BBQ, in my honest opinion, has the best! They don’t even need any sauce!!! The brisket was fantastic too, and oooooohhhh the beans...wonderful! I can’t recommend this place enough!

  • 3 star review  We've been eating here since they opened. The food is always delicious. And the waitstaff are Great! The prices have continued to increase while the portion sizes have decreased. We have been ordering one of their new menu items Country Fried brisket and love it. Today we ordered the same. It came out as 1 large slice. This plate cost 13.99. We inquired with the waitress asking if it changed because it normally has 2 or 3 pieces. We were told that is how it comes now. I'm going to hesitate to come back. Adding breakfast and mimosas are not enough to bring me back to overpay.

  • 5 star review  Arriving in town late in the day we went with the first Google review that looked good. That led us to Main Street BBQ. We were not disappointed. We were greeted when we walked in the door and took our seats. The feel inside was as pleasant as the smell that smacked you in the face when you walked through the door. The food was outstanding and the service was great. The local folks seated around us we pleasant as well and offered us suggestions.

  • 4 star review  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.

  • 4 star review  Outstanding lunch. We really enjoyed the fish, the appetizers (green beans and fries), and the chili. But the big hit was the smoky bbq sauce. Great place to grab a meal!
