Hi,

Looking for a local joint to buy some takeout BBQ for Son's birthday tomorrow. Preferably in the Brier Creek area. we are new to the area - my BBQ knowledge is limited to the Pit downtown and more recently the Backyard BBQ in Durham . Loved them both.

Any suggestions where to get some food to go? Want it all prepared and ready just to be heated up for Fridady night!

Cheers,
LAR

I'm not a ribs person but I hear the ribs at a new place off Creedmoor Rd in North Raleigh are pretty good. I would check out Sardi's Den

I enjoy take-out ribs from the Harris Teeter supermarket. They are usually on sale Saturdays but are available every day. Tasty, tender, reasonably priced.

These ribs come into the store already cooked, vacuum-packed, and frozen. Staff thaws a few at a time for immediate sale. On Saturdays they are already heated. Any way you buy them, a few minutes in the microwave oven and they are ready! Depending on personal taste these ribs might be served with baked beans, cole slaw, pickled beets, apple sauce. Yum!

Look for Rose's ribs in the refrigerated case at Lowes Foods or Walmart. Don't tell anyone otherwise they will be sold out when I go to look for them. They are like 7-8 bucks per rack.
Throw 'em on a cookie sheet and heat 'em up. Thank me later.

Not a favorite. Not the worst I've ever had, just not a place I would think to go back a second time to for ribs (and I love ribs).

I love Smokey's on Chapel Hill Road, just south of I-540. A full rack is $20 and their wings are amazing as well.

I've only been there once or twice, but there is Danny's BBQ on TW Alexander & Miami Blvd. There was a Dickey's BBQ over by the Walmart but that closed, probably because of bad service.

Oooh I got one for you. Fresh Market has the best BBQ ribs I've ever had. No lie, just bought some Tuesday and they were better then I remembered them years ago,when I used to work there. They have a dry rubbed BBQ(my favorite,less messy,not too spicy and you can dip in extra sauce if wanted) and a honey Bbq sauced style.The deli slow cooks them in a rotisserie oven daily and its off the chain delicious. Fork and teeth tender,no gristle or overly fatty sections. Pretty much all meat on those bones. Priced at $9.99/lb and are cut into half racks. I bought 2 large size ones and it was about $19. A little more expensive then other grocers but way better imo and I'm very picky when it comes to affairs of the swine.

I would pre-order the day before or that morning. With rotisserie items they only cook a limited amount,so that they are sold daily.When they are gone they're gone . They take special orders for rotisserie items all the time for customers that need larger quantities or a guaranteed item. Tell your son "Happy Birthday" and enjoy those ribs.

You're the second person to recommend Sardi's; what did I miss? The ribs were so unremarkable when I went that I literally have had no desire to return despite having had ribs at least a half dozen times since. I also didn't much care for the sauce on the side model as well.
