Glen's wife and son, Tommy helped run and build the business through the years, and Tommy has been owner with he and his family operating the restaurant since 1965. The business has changed locations as it has grown (it is the longest continuous running restaurant in Durham) and has been in it's current location since 1970

The favorite of locals for decades. NC BBQ is different from sweet red BBQ- use the hot sauce and have some Brunswick stew. Fried chicken is darned good, too. Closed Sunday and Monday and open only til 8:30 pm

Great place. We didn't go for a long while but have started again. We are glad we have returned.

Family-friendly restaurant - great place to try vinegar based eastern NC BBQ, fried okra, and authentic banana pudding. Can be an acquired taste for some and the location (right behind a Rite Aid) leaves something to be desired. There's also a number of veggie options for vegetarians. CASH ONLY.

Get here early or expect to drive around looking for parking then wait in a long line. The BBQ is good but not fantastic, as are the hush puppies and cole slaw. From the pictures on the wall, it looks like anyone who is anyone eats at Bullock's when they come to Durham.

If you want BBQ in Durham, look no further. I mean, if you want to go further, head to Allen & Sons. If you expect to be too full with brisket and pork, then Bullock's is your place. This place has been around forever, and is the real deal.
