  • 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.

  • 5 star review  This was the best food I’ve eaten in Durant. It’s amazing. Atmosphere is fun, decor is simple & a bit rustic, staff is friendly. I went in with a group of people and we where attended to quickly. Staff had every order perfect. The food portions are HUGE so if your a light eater I suggest the kids portion. You will not be disappointed. The smoked turkey was delicious. The brisket amazing and the vegetables were yummy!! Location is easy to find. Parking may be tricky when they are busy but it’s be worth the wait

  • 5 star review  Always crowded their pick up window had a long line. Not enough parking and the flavor it's good. Clean restrooms and visible location. Highly recommended. Their prices are lower than the average barbecue joint. Enjoy!

  • 5 star review  Main street barbecue was great!! We got the big pig plate, a sampler of all the variety of meats they have. Was amazing all of it was good I particularly like the smoked Turkey and sliced brisket but all of it was amazing. Quick service! Our waitress was amazing recommending what she liked and helping out with different menu combos. Checked on us a few times, we were too busy eating to answer half the time. I would go every time I'm in Durant.

  • 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!

  • 5 star review  Awesome little laid back restaurant in downtown Durant. My baked potato was as big as a dinner plate, served on a dinner plate and took up the whole thing! Spicy fried green beans served with Ranch for dipping was very good. Actually everything we tried was good, but we have never had fried green beans before so they stood out for us. Got our food surprisingly quickly after ordering in spite of them being fairly busy. Very good, friendly service. We will be back!

  • 3 star review  The brisket and ribs were good. The service was good. The rest was poor. The sweet potatoes fries were cold and raw. The po boy bun was straight out of package, cold n dry. The roll was cold n hard. Deffinetly NOT what I expected from the good reviews.

  • 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.

  • 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.
