“A sunny place for shady people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

That's the motto of this great BBQ place. Warehouse like with great food, quick service and multiple BBQ Sauces to appeal to anyone's taste buds. We like the pulled pork the best, but other meats were excellent along with the beans and Mac-n-cheese. Hush puppies are a must.

“Fun spot -ok BBQ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

A decent meal, some good beers but on our visit 2 of 6 beers were not available. Brisket was tasty, but it seemed to be dry. Beer Can chicken was moist, slaw crisp and good variation on the usually too wet and too savory versions. Service quick and efficient, but more perfunctory than friendly. Prices were set at appropriate value for what's served.

“Awesome awesome awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Everything was great! Went on a Saturday night , only had to wait about 10 minutes, was seated and greeted fast! Our server Becky was so nice and was on top of everything! We were amazed at how fast our food and everything came out. Everything about our experience was great!! It's our first time here and we will defiantly be back!

“Ohkayy mac.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

This is. Charlotte chain that is ok. Don't break your neck or gps getting here, it's whatever food w whatever service in a whatever setting. I'd seriously save my $60 for 2 and seek out Lancasters BBQ for better food atmosphere service. Pass.
