Decided to try even though I knew it was the sister restaurant to Fatback Soul Shack which I tried the night before and found unimpressive. Due South fared a little better. I ordered the half rack of ribs, cole slaw, and hush puppies and with tax the price was just over $18 - a little pricey. Overall the ribs were... More

I love barbecue but I'm very picky. Their prices are a bit ridiculous and every time I eat there the burnt taste stays in my mouth for hours. Haven't been there in several months and not sure I'll even go back, but on a positive note I do like their sweet potato casserole

Called in an order to go and it was ready when we arrived. Good pulled pork, excellent sides and they were nice when we went in to pick it all up.

This is my second time eating here. I'm just not super impressed with this place. This time I had the Jumbo Pulled Pork sandwich, baked beans, Mac & cheese and hush puppies. Some of the pork was so burnt you could not chew it, Mac and cheese was average at best, baked beans were not good and the hush puppies... More

A lot of these bbq places have popped up around the south (or old dives have been rebuilt) and they all follow the same script. This one is just average. Sauces were okay but did not stand out. Place lacked soul frankly. Chicken was smoked and then fried like in a turkey fryer and was a standout. Hush puppies and... More

This is a good place to get BBQ in the NRV, but if you're looking for Eastern North Carolina style or even Texas BBQ, this isn't it. My favorite is the whole roasted chicken, which is worth five stars alone, but the other items (e.g., hush puppies, slaw & baked beans) aren't as good. Service is quick and friendly.

We try to avoid national chain restaurants even when humping it down I-81 and its endless parade of trucks. We saw a sign for Due South and it was less than a half mile from the Interstate. They minimize their overhead by having you order at the cash register, then pay and then they give you a number to place... More

We stopped here for lunch.....after we ate lunch! Couldn't resist. Great local hole in the wall. Walk in, grab a menu and find a seat. Then go to the register to place your order and pay. They give you a number and bring the food to your table. Tip: they have a special board by the register that is not... More
