We decide to spend our last night in Durham. Looking for a place to eat, I decided to mention BeerBoor's recommendation: Bullock's. You see, he's a Duke alum and I trust his suggestions for good food, especially in the South. So off we went for some BBQ.
Bullock's has been around for ages. You can tell from the decor that looks like it hasn't changed...at all. But I liked it. It felt homey. It felt...real. Our waitress was even better. An old woman that called us honey. She still worked hard and stood on her feet. God bless her.
We each ordered a BBQ plate and snacked on some hush puppies while we waited. These were quite nice. Well fried and sweet.
Then our plates came out simultaneously. I had the barbecue and ribs plate with coleslaw. The ribs were spare ribs and quite large. Very meaty but not fall off the bone. But I prefer that. I like a chew to my meat. Pretty delicious and the sauce was sweet and tangy. The chopped barbecue meat tasted pretty good too with it's vinegary base. They chopped it that it retained some texture but was easy to eat without much chewing. The coleslaw was very nice as well. Vinegar based and necessary to cut through the heavier meat items.
