Main Street Barbecue is Durant’s only local, family-owned and operated restaurant with deep roots in Bryan County. 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • When will I ever learn that putting tarter sauce with your favorite fish plate probably will prevent your happiness at the dating polls? Sorry about that guys it's just the kid in me. But maybe theirs hope for me come Thanksgiving when my favorite dessert is pecan pie?

  • my boyfriend and I came here while we were driving through. Everything was so good, we got a 3 meat plate with Ribs, chopped brisket, and jalapeño cheddar smoked sausage. For our sides we got the spicy fried green beans, and fried okra. The ribs were BOMB, they were probably the best we’ve ever had. They were about an inch thick, and super juicy, we didn’t even feel the need for bbq sauce on them. The sausage and brisket were just as good! The fried spicy green beans were so good!! The ribs were so good we had to get some to go!

  • 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.

  • 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 food was delicious! We had the old fashioned frito chili pie, pork rib sandwich with seasoned waffle fries (crispy) and the biggest sweet potato topped with smoked chicken breast. Ii was great 👍 Service was courteous, attentive and the atmosphere was relaxed. Great Saturday night 🌙 Thank you Emily 😊

  • 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.
