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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Awesome little laid back restaurant in downtown Durant. My baked potato was as big as a dinner plate, served on a dinner plate and took up the whole thing! Spicy fried green beans served with Ranch for dipping was very good. Actually everything we tried was good, but we have never had fried green beans before so they stood out for us. Got our food surprisingly quickly after ordering in spite of them being fairly busy. Very good, friendly service. We will be back!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • We've been eating here since they opened. The food is always delicious. And the waitstaff are Great! The prices have continued to increase while the portion sizes have decreased. We have been ordering one of their new menu items Country Fried brisket and love it. Today we ordered the same. It came out as 1 large slice. This plate cost 13.99. We inquired with the waitress asking if it changed because it normally has 2 or 3 pieces. We were told that is how it comes now. I'm going to hesitate to come back. Adding breakfast and mimosas are not enough to bring me back to overpay.
