A giant thank you to Roadfood.com as we would have never found this jewel without them! I would travel 60 miles out of our way to eat at this perfect place again.

The BBQ plate was out of this world; tender, delicious... flavor that we had never experienced before! We shared dessert and I scored big points for the warm pound cake with cream cheese frosting while our kids gave their votes to the peanut butter pie.

This lunch was such a wonderful experience while traveling, one we will be talking about for years. For a week's worth of eating out while traveling from Michigan to North Carolina and back again, Allen & Son will long live as the BEST meal of the entire journey.

The best pulled pork I had in the South comes perfectly sauced and complete with exquisite, traditional cole slaw, potato salad, and hush puppies (not pictured).

While my cousin had high praise for the pork and coleslaw on his plate, he called this Brunswick stew the best he has ever had. (Photo by Johnny Napier.)

For a barbecue parlor, Allen & Son has a surprisingly wide-ranging dessert menu. (Photo by Johnny Napier.)

A well-used pickup truck in the parking lot is frequently a sign of good food inside. This photo shows the Allen & Son in Graham, NC, no longer in business.
