Hometown Haunt – The Best BBQ

There is a little barbeque joint in my hometown, called Henry's Smokehouse, that cooks the best BBQ ever!  Seriously…it should be on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives or something (you reading, Guy?).  I don't know if I think Henry's has the best BBQ because people tend to latch on to wherever they tasted something for the first time (and I had my first-ever BBQ at Henry's) or because they really do just cook the best BBQ…I'm thinking it's a combination of both, though.


Every time I visit my parents, I cross my fingers and hope we have enough time to stop by this little barbeque joint so I can get my fix.


I always get the "Regular BBQ Sandwich Plate" with coleslaw and french fries.  Everything about this plate is good – the barbeque is always super tender, the sauces at the tables are my favorite flavors, the cole slaw is pretty basic slaw – not too sweet, and the fries are (I think) cut from real potatoes.  Yum!

Probably not the best thing to eat over an already-indulgent weekend, but I couldn't resist. 🙂

  1. OMG! That is my hometown! I love Henry's!!! It is the most like the BBQ I used to get when I visited my grandparents in NC! Makes me wish I would have read this earlier I so could have gone there for lunch!

  2. Thanks for your nice compliment on my blog. I plan to come back and visit "The Chic Life". My computer is acting up, as in crashing quite a bit lately.
    I need to get back to cooking and that is something
    I have strayed away from. Sooooo, I take pictures and have so much fun doing so.
    So far, your blog looks very interesting and thanks for stopping.
