North Main BBQ was opened to the public in 1981 by Hubert Green, Dollie Green, Ray Green and Eddie Kelsey. North Main BBQ started its life as a truck repair shop that sold a little BBQ on the side. It quickly grew through word of mouth.
North Main has been featured on Ted Allen's The Best Thing I Ever Ate and Queer Eye For The Straight Guy.
North Main's primary cuisine is beef (brisket) (chopped or sliced), sausage, pork shoulder, and pork ribs, and chicken. Merchandise is available from the restaurant itself or via their website (www.bbqnorthmain.com) , and includes the restaurant's trademark sauces and dry rub. All food is either served all-you-can-eat, or on a sandwich plate.
All you can eat is currently[when?] $17 (drink included) while a sandwich is $6, with sides $2 each. Meat can be bought by the pound off of the Togo Menu.
North Main BBQ has a main room, where the BBQ is served buffet style, with additional rooms being opened in the building as needed for overflow. A typical Friday can include lines that snake around the interior of the building. The seating is picnic table style.
The restaurant maintains BYOB policy, and convenience stores relatively nearby sell beer.
North Main BBQ has appeared in the book America's Best BBQ: 100 Recipes from America's Best Smokehouses, Pits, Shacks, Rib Joints, Roadhouses and Restaurants.
North Main BBQ is a member of the International Barbeque Cookers Association and has hosted monthly meetings for the organization.
