If you plan to visit Western NC, please check beforehand to see if the area is safe following the recent flooding. Officials have closed some sections of Pisgah National Forest (including Forest Heritage Scenic Byway and Blue Ridge Parkway stops) to keep visitors out of danger. Please respect signage and local guidance.

Gerri Grady and her husband Steve have owned Grady’s Barbecue in Dudley, Wayne County since 1986. Together, the two have been serving some of the best barbecue near Goldsboro.

While chatting with me for NC Travel Chat #7, Mrs. Grady shared her and Steve’s journey from their opening to today.

She even gave a few shoutouts to some locally owned businesses in Goldsboro. They include:

Terry’s Tasty Shoppe
Wilber’s BBQ
McCall’s Bar-B-Que & Seafood

If you consider yourself a person who likes North Carolina barbecue and have not visited Grady’s, do something about that and visit them while they’re open.

You can call ahead (for orders and hours) at (919) 735-7243.
