Acceptable - Stamey's Barbecue of Tyro, Tyro NC

Address - 4524 S NC Highway 150, Lexington, NC 27295 Map
Style - Sit-down restaurant

Even if it has a Lexington address, this Stamey's is in the small unincorporated town of Tyro out on NC 150 south of US 64 well west of Lexington. The restaurant is a typical Lexington barbecue joint with booths and tables.

My lunch was a sliced barbecue tray, which came with red slaw and a decent sized basket of hushpuppies. The meat had good flavor, comparable to that I had at Speedy's or John Wayne's. The red slaw disappointed. It was so acidic that it overwhelmed the flavor of the barbecue dip. Next time, I would have the meat alone, not on a tray.
