Stopped for a late lunch today with a friend. Not only was the BBQ chic sandwich the bomb, our waitress was the best. Wish we got her name. Dark hair with that blond sweep on the left. Food was really good, day was perfect for outdoor dining. We were in town only for the day, but next trip from Asheville... More

The restaurant is small and set up as a sports bar/saloon but offers a full menu. The BBQ pork was excellent as was the Mac-N-Cheese. I am not a big fan of NC BBQ vinegar based sauce but this sauce was not terrible. The staff are amazing and everyone there appeared to be having a good time and enjoying their... More

I got a catering order for my clients who's office is near by. We had the pork with mac n cheese and green beans. The macaroni is unbelievable, hands down the best I have ever had!

I went to McKoy's Smoke House with five other associates for lunch. We arrived at 1:15 and nearly every parking space was occupied. It was a large parking lot so it's apparent that many agree with the Trip Advisor reviews. Our party of six was seated promptly. Service was very good, the food was delivered as ordered and we were... More

Amazing pulled pork. Squash, Mac and Cheese, and Collard Greens are great sides. My boyfriend had the wings in Bar-balo. Everything was so good we went twice in our 4 nights. One night was busy and our food came after other tables that got there after us, but the waitress tried to be nice about it.

This was our lunch stop before we flew out of Charlotte. Service is very good and the food is fantastic. We ordered the Sampler Plate and a mixed plate with smoked chicken, smoked beef, BBQ chicken and cole slaw. My daughter had the chicken tenders with fries. Everything was above average. Really good food.

Smoked wings were great.! I got the half rack of ribs with macaroni and potato salad. Ribs were undercooked on one side. Macaroni was just noodles and cheese, no seasoning. Potato salad did not taste southern at all. Atmosphere is great with friendly people. Food just wasn't great.

Place has great service. Food was okay. I had the pulled pork, Mac and cheese, and fried okra. My gf had the ribs, Mac, and potato salad. It was bad my whole plate was cold the pulled pork was more pink than I'd imagine. Her ribs seemed under done definitely not smoked for 14 hours. Saving grace are the wings... More

BEST bbq I've had in North Carolina. We ordered the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. They came to the table rather quickly and we're extremely hot (temperature) but they were delicious. The music in here was a little loud for my taste, almost difficult to have a normal volume conversation. The dinner we ordered was phenomenal, I ordered the... More

Mckoy's came recommended by locals... its pretty small so I can see there being a wait at busy times, but I was immediately seated at the bar... The bartender was very friendly & did great... only complaint is she spent a lot of time answering to go orders (not her fault)... The wings & Mac n cheese were recommended &... More
