This weekend we went to Bullock’s BBQ for lunch. It’s been a while since we ate the best barbeque around. If you are a fan of Eastern NC barbeque (chopped pork with a vinegar based sauce), this is the place. Over the years, there have been some other barbeque joints in the area, but none of them can last against the best.
When I was in college, we used to go and get family style. The servers brought plates loaded with fried chicken, barbeque, brunswick stew, cole slaw, green beans, cooked apples, hush puppies and tea so sweet it made your teeth hurt.
We were not a family style crowd for this meal, so I got a traditional combo of barbeque and brunswick stew. It comes with a side of cole slaw. Everything was perfect. Perfect barbeque. Fantastic brunswick stew. And just the right kind of slaw to go with it. Next time you are in Durham you owe it to yourself to go to Bullocks.
By the way, this spring is my 20th College Reunion, so the college days are frequently on my mind. I don’t know yet if I will go to the reunion.
