We are committed to sourcing the highest quality grass-fed beef, southern fried fish, and the freshest produce we can get our hands on. Our Farm-to-Table barbecue is cooked low and slow over locally harvested pecan wood fires and combines tried and true smoking techniques as well as new ideas born from our trendy team. We are open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

  • 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!

  • Pros: Best BBQ I've had in a very long time. This is a place my family visits frequently. Several sauce options, lots of variety on the menu. I've never been disappointed by the food. Cons: Don't expect your drink to be refilled unless you ask for it. Also will probably have to ask for more napkins. Overall good and I definitely recommend eating here!

  • Road tripping and stopped here for lunch. Wow! Do yourself a favor and eat here. I had the rib plate (smallest is 6 ribs), green beans, and apple cider cole slaw. I have plenty leftover for another meal. Everything was delicious, and I am no stranger to good bbq. The mild sauce was really good, not super sweet. Waitress was a sweetie too. Will return again if in the area.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • The best BBQ in Durant! I love coming here! My favorite is the big stuffed baker with chopped brisket. My only complaint is that they don't have cherry cobbler very often.

  • Ordered sliced beef and chicken breast to go with hot and fire sauces to go. They were excellent. The macaroni and mashed potatoes and brown gravy are good as well. I recommend this place to any BBQ fans.

  • 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.
