Ralph’s BBQ – Weldon, NC

Ralph’s BBQ is located 2 blocks east of I-95, exit 173 in Weldon. They offer buffet-style meals… and superb barbecue (pulled pork), chicken, and fried catfish. They also have all manner of salads and fresh vegetables.

This place is not to be missed. No credit cards… cash only here. You’ll get quality food served quickly in a buffet, all-you-can-eat style.

The buffet isn’t just BBQ, it also had fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, potato salad, pickles, light pasta squiggles, regular salad, no baked beans, banana pudding and strawberry shortcake.

This is a must stop! Give them a try, you may just end up being a regular customer.


  1. DO NOT STOP near end of lunch buffet! They pull the items from service. Had to BEG for dessert! Veggies NO flavor. Mashed Potatoes tasted like instant. Meat was okay. Was there Aug 02, 2016 and will never go back!

  2. My mother was from Roanoke Rapids, NC so I grew up eating at Ralph’s (about 50 years ago). With this admitted bias, I believe Ralph’s is the BEST for minced and pulled eastern NC BBQ (you must add the slaw too), fried chicken, brunswick stew, etc. We try to stop at Ralph’s each time we go south–it made my wife (formerly of PA) and northern VA kids big fans.

    Being just off 95, the parking lot generally has a number of out-of-state cars, but there are always more NC tags — more locals than travelers. That’s ’cause it’s so good.

  3. We stop at Ralph’s every time we go to/from Florida (from Pennsylvania) in our motorhome. There is plenty of parking for the largest rigs and the best North Carolina style BBQ you can find. We always get a pound of BBQ and slaw to go for the next day or two. No better eating on the road!

  4. hav had your minced pulled pork barbecue a couple of years ago traveling down south..

    have had your minced pulled pork in the past.

    Do you ship pulled pork minced barbecure????
