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.

The Pig Restaurant to Open in Chapel Hill

Recently, there has been remodeling activity at the location of the late lamented Barbecue Joint on Weaver Dairy Road in Chapel Hill. Last week, a banner was displayed outside for "The Pig". The banner shows a web-site at thepigrestaurant.com , which currently points to a Facebook page, which primarily is showing pictures of the renovation. We'll keep an eye on this.
