Review of Backyard BBQ Pit
5122 NC Highway 55, Durham, NC 27713-9466

I looked up soul food restaurants while visiting Durham on business, and decided on Backyard BBQ Pit. Although it was raining, the average sized parking lot was packed. I ordered the catfish (made to order) with a side of potato salad (unexpectedly sweet) and black-eye peas (above average). I also ordered a pork rib meal with green beans (above average) and macaroni and cheese (gooey GOLD). The pineapple lemonade is DELICIOUS! This is a family run cafeteria style restaurant. So, don’t be surprised to see the owner conversing with patrons or young family members running from cartoons on the television (hanging on the wall) to the counter for a drink (lemonade of course) Seating is available.
