  • Best barbecue north of McKinney Texas! I love this place. They have huge catfish fillets breaded and cook perfectly in southern cornmeal fashion! My wife and both really like the pulled pork and chopped brisket.

  • My hubby had the sliders. He tried the sausage, sliced brisket & chopped brisket. The sliced brisket was my favorite. It was so tender & juicy, the smoked flavor was abundant. I had the meatloaf, the portion was generous to say the least. It was moist, tender & smokey. The homemade mashed potatoes were a plus but the fried okra stole the show, that was made with love. We will definitely return.

  • We were out running errands and stopped for lunch. They had the best brisket I have had in a long time. Our server was very nice and recommended the spicy green beans which were so good! Its a very nice place and we were served quickly.

  • 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 "3 Pigs Plate" is an absolute must-try, featuring a delightful combination of tender meats that will leave you craving more. But what also sets Main Street BBQ apart is their dedication to supporting the local community. With delicious food and a community-minded spirit, it's no wonder Main Street BBQ is a favorite among Durant residents and visitors alike. Don't forget the Spicy Fried Green Beans! You can also order Main Street BBQ from across the street at Lost Street Brewing Co and if they arent too busy they will walk it over for you! Great food!

  • The smoked meats are absolutely great! I think the St Louis Ribs are the best of all. I love their special hot sauce. Also, the person who waited our table was excellent too.

  • The food was okay. Meat didn't have that good smoked taste you would expect. Mac and cheese was great. Service was very slow, but it was busy. Our server was extremely friendly and charming. The restaurant building was rustic and pleasant, fun atmosphere. Overall it did the job but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit again.

  • 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...

  • The food was good. Nothing extraordinary, but surpassed my expectations. The ribs were tender and everything had a good flavor. The pulled pork wasn't mushy (overcooked) like most places. The pineapple sausage is well worth a try. Our server was polite and attentive to our table. The atmosphere was nothing special, but the welcoming vibe from the staff gave the place an at home feel.

  • 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!
