Acceptable - Ole Time Barbecue, Raleigh

Address - 6309 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh Map
Style - Sit-down restaurant

Years ago, there was a restaurant on Hillsborough or Western that had a pig pickin' on Wednesdays. I was in the area on a Wednesday and went looking for that restaurant. I found the Ole Time Barbecue instead.

I ordered BBQ and Fried Chicken with slaw and fried apple sticks. The waitress brought a basket of hushpuppies to the table before I ordered, which is always a nice touch. The hushpuppies were alright, except for some overfried pieces in the bottom of the basket. The BBQ had a good flavor, with visible red spices. The chicken was about average fried with some spices in the coating.

The fried apple sticks were superb. I have never seen them quite done this way. These are worth a revisit.
