We are not just a restaurant, we are a part of the community ( we are an institution). Herman’s has been open since 1964. We are located in a farmhouse that is over 100 years old. On New Years Day 1964, a Fayetteville native named Herman Tuck opened what we know today as Herman’s Ribhouse. The menu had nine choices on it. Rack of ribs, plate o ribs, bbq chicken, a large T~bone and five sandwiches. A large aquarium adorned the room and bare walls quickly filled up with pictures of Herman’s Fans.


In the year of 1990. Herman Tuck retired. Herman brought in long time family friends Bruce and P.J. Barnes to keep the business going with “his kind of” tradition. Bruce took the nine item menu further by adding Filets, baby back ribs, and shrimp remoulade. In 2000 Bruce and P.J. left Herman’s to start their own restaurant. Therefore in July of 2000. Herman sold the restaurant to Benny Spears and Shelby Rogers who brought the tradition of Herman’s into the 21st century with new equipment and outdoor deck. In 2013 Shelby Rogers sold the restaurant to long time employees Nick and Carrie Wright, who are brightening the traditional burning flame at Herman’s while also sharing the Herman’s experience whither new clientele.
