My husband and I always share "A little bit of everything", and it is awesome! The brisket is to die for. The beer selection is huge!

The flavors of the food were very good. My brisket was either fall-apart tender or a little tough (1 strip great, others a bit tough). I had the mac-n-cheese and red beans and rice sides, and both were very good (to excellent). I like the mystery beer (happened to be a brown ale), and the live music on a Wednesday... More

I can only speak to the food of this restaurant because we got our order to go. I had a high expectation of the BBQ after receiving a recommendation of it from a family member. I am sad to say that the BBQ was good but not great. I ordered a meal that included a little bit of 4 meats... More

Great food! We were looking for a BBQ place and a friend took us here. Great beer selection and the meats were tender and smoky. .. just what you want from bbq. I think our bartenders name was Nina.. she was friendly, efficient. Fun experience!

Fast service. Good food. There are different types of BBQ sauce you can try. The waitress Kaitlin suggesed Mac n cheese and beans as the best sides. I tried them both and they were great. If you want fast, simple, good food at a reasonable price give it a try!

During our stay in Charlotte my colleagues and I visited both branches. Not a lot to choose or differ between the two so the same review will be posted to both. This place was recommended by a local and, oh boy, what a great recommendation. Seated as soon as walked in, we were given menus and told about the $3... More
