  • Food was delicious, and the tea wasn't bitter - I didn't even need to add sugar to the unsweetened tea I ordered. But many of the tables had resident flies. It's coming into summer so that might not be a concern if you visit during cold weather.

  • On a recent trip to Durant I took the opportunity to eat at Main Street BBQ and it was excellent. I had the sliced brisket, potato salad and BBQ beans. Everything was great. The meat was very tender and had a nice smokey flavor. I tried the hot sauce and it also was very good. It was a tad hot but not bad. The wait staff was very nice and friendly. I will return on my next Durant trip. The only issue will be what to order next time

  • Impressive modern choices with delicious smoked meats! We had the Ultimate Pork Nachos for an appetizer and it could have been a meal by itself. The waffle fries were freshly homemade and topped with pinto beans, queso cheese, generous serving of pulled pork, and sour cream. Then I had the This Little Piggy Sausage platter with pineapple, jalapeno cheddar, hot link, and classic sausages! All the sausages were delicious but the highlight was the pineapple which had so much flavor! My wife had the Brisket Mac and Cheese. She enjoyed that greatly! My mom had the Barbeque plate with sliced beef. The variety and flavor combos of this plate including squash, zucchini, cauliflower, and pinto beans were incredible! Looking forward to coming back to Durant to try more wonderful food!

  • 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.

  • 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

  • I've had Main Street BBQ before but always as takeout. Yesterday my boyfriend and I drove from Denison to Durant to pick up some metal then decided dining in at Main Street BBQ sounded like a good plan.. We were not disappointed ? The atmosphere is great, the staff is fun and the food is always on point... I'd drive from Texas any day to enjoy their greatness?
