Richard Berrier learned about barbecue in Lexington and opened his first restaurant in Winston-Salem in 1991. What he serves is Lexington-style that is cooked over wood to get the smoky flavor. The restaurant is considered one of the state's best. In 1999 Berrier received a \"Certificate of Barbecue Excellence\" from the North Carolina Barbecue Club.
Joe and Edna Hill opened Hill's Lexington Barbecue in 1951 in Winston-Salem. At that time there were few barbecue restaurants in town and none served the Lexington style. In 1971 the restaurant moved from a 35-seat restaurant to its present location, which seats 200. At sixty years, Hill's is now a third-generation family business.
Barbecue in NC divides between Eastern and Western style. Although Bib's Downtown does barbecue, it's neither of the two traditional ones. It's a potpourri of pulled pork, brisket, chicken, and other meats all flavored with owner Mark Little's own sauce--Bestern BBQ Sauce. Little opened his place in 2008 in the shell of an old Firestone auto shop of West 5th Street in Winston-Salem.
