Our Menu

Johnson Family Barbecue is a family owned and operated little BBQ joint here in Durham County, NC. All our meats, including pork, chicken, brisket and ribs, are cooked on-site in our smoke pit over 100% hickory wood because "It's all about the WOOD". Wayne, Allison and the crew hand make 8-10 sides on any given day, and will sometimes fire up some of Wayne's favorites such as Jerk Chicken and his 3-time award winning chili, so make sure to check out the special board or our Facebook page to see what we're offering. And since everything we make is homemade, including our famous banana puddin' and other desserts, you can count on finding something you'll love. And if that's not enough, our staff is the friendliest around, consistently going the extra mile to make sure you, our patrons, are satisfied, comfortable & full.  Click here for a downloadable menu.
