Best BBQ: Penguin Ed’s
For anyone outside of Fayetteville, the correlation of penguins and barbeque would sound silly, but to natives on The Hill, it sounds absolutely delicious. Penguin Ed’s has been serving Fayetteville for more than 16 years and we love it now more than ever.
Penguin Ed’s started off as just a tent on the side of a road. Three locations and millions of penguins later, we have the almighty franchise Fayetteville has come to know and love.
Pork, chicken, beef, brisket and sausage are the main attraction at Penguin Ed’s BBQ, as are their famous fried pickles. Penguin Ed’s Way out West offers a small yet substantial vegetarian menu for those who morally can’t eat meat, but relish the smell. As for Penguin Ed’s on Mission Boulevard, in addition to the vegetarian menu, this location merged with a bakery-café and now serves breakfast Wednesday to Sunday.
Serving up plate after plate of their infamously delectable smoked meats, Penguin Ed’s has gained a loyal following of customers. Highly recommended and forever seen as a Fayetteville icon, Penguin Ed’s is sure to please even the pickiest of barbeque connoisseurs and lovers of penguins.
