Stamey’s is pretty good; they have two locations now. Kepley’s in High Point...15-20 miles further has been around forever as well. Barbecue Center, Speedy’s, and Lexington Barbecue—all further west in Lexington all have their followers as well.
If you like “Memphis style” BBQ, Bibb’s in downtown Winston-Salem is incredible! Also, Small Batch BBQ in Lynchburg, VA.
