Welcome to Clyde Cooper’s Barbecue! We have been serving Carolina-style barbecue since 1938 in downtown Raleigh. We slow cook only top lean pork shoulders and hams until they are meltingly tender, mixed with a splash of our own tasty barbecue sauce, and good hospitality extend the tradition Clyde Cooper portrayed.

Come in and join us where we will treat you like family. Let us cater your next party or corporate event! All of our food is made fresh daily and with cholesterol-free oil.
