B's Barbecue added to Southern BBQ Trail

Donna McLawhorn, Judy Drach, and Tammy Godley and a plate from their restaurant, B's Barbecue

In Greenville, NC, just down the street from a brand new medical complex on the East Carolina University Campus and tobacco fields, stands B's Barbecue. This family-run joint serves up Eastern North Carolina whole hog barbecue and barbecued chickens until they run out of food each day around lunchtime. The lines grow both inside the restaurant and outside at the walk-up window from 8 am to early afternoon with all sorts of Greenville residents. I spent an entire day with the McLawhorn sisters and the rest of the crew at B's Barbecue, and the interview has been added to the North Carolina leg of the Southern BBQ Trail (more NC interviews coming soon!). You can view the project here and photos from B's on the SFA's Flickr page.
