Dinner at Bill Spoons was good. The restaurant was not too crowded. Our waitress was a little slow but very polite. The meal was tasty and the barbeque is very flavorful. Good mac n cheese.

Pretty good bbq. Family friendly and old school. I recommend the pork bbq and fries. The décor was a little dated but I feel like that might have added to the experience.

went there twice. Got the pulled pork bbq sandwich and fried pickles. both times the pulled pork was dry and lacked all flavor. The homemade bbq sauce was great though and the price was not horrible. was looking for amazing bbq and did not find it there

This is a family-run place with very good whole hog eastern style NC 'cue. They don't cook on wood, but they put out a very consistently great quality BBQ. I have been many times and they have never had an off day.

This is my experience at Bill Spoons June 4,2015 at 1pm. There was 14 people eating and 3 more came in after me. I ordered the special, 5oz of bbq and two sides which was Brunswick stew and ff. My food came on a small sectioned paper plate. I liked the bbq but the portions reminded me of 3rd grade... More

We decided on take out on a Saturday afternoon when we had 16 family members visiting. Decided on barbecue and picked Bill Spoon's mostly due to location. Went on the website, it is simple but complete. Contact information, hours, guidelines, menu. Does not have a submit on line, you need to call, but someone answered and made it easy. Since... More

After reading all of the reviews on here and yelp, we decided to try it out one day for lunch. It wasn't too busy. The waitress was very friendly and kept refilling our tea and water often. We ordered the fried pickles- they were really good. The hushpuppies were okay, but they could have been a little sweeter. Then our... More

Ten of us stopped in for a quick lunch during a day of meetings nearby. The place was packed but we were promptly seated and service was great considering the size of the group. The Brunswick stew was good, and the barbecue was NC style, dry with a vinegar sauce. Others who knew NC BBQ said it was very good.... More

What a wonderful experience. We were looking for a locally owned (not a chain) BBQ place off of interstate 77 in Charlotte. We decided on this place – and it was wonderful! The food was great – reasonably priced. The BBQ – exactly what we were hoping for. The sweet tea was the kind you can only get in the... More
