Though not a bbq place, a trip to Henderson certainly deserves a stop at the Bon Ton Mini-Mart (probably reviewed in these pages somewhere) for some of the finest fried chicken and sides anywhere. It’s kind of hard to find, but well, well, well worth the trip.
My favorite bbq in Henderson is at Gene’s Restaurant on 41A (I think) near the hospital. In addition to their own offerings, they will smoke anything that you bring in for you. Also, superb coconut cream pie, excellent breakfasts (pork tenderloin biscuits are my favorite) and a full menu of sandwiches and meat-and-threes. Have also been there for Thanksgiving when my father-in-law was in the hospital. Gene’s is terrific!
