Better food, better prices, MUCH better sauces than Jim N Nick's!

We were told to try R&R and Jim n Nick's, and to be prepared to prefer Jim n Nicks. NO! R&R was our favorite! I ordered the three meat plate, chicken, pork BBQ, ribs. Wife ordered pork BBQ, kids ordered two burgers and two dogs. Burgers were great! Hot dogs AMAZING! Some of the best dogs I've... read more

Off the highway, past some farmers' fields, appears the restaurant which closes at 9 pm. Seems like an old-time local favourite and tasty food was served quickly by the friendly staff. My family enjoyed sitting in one of the booths. There were also longer tables for larger groups.

This is a hidden gem for those who didn't know it existed. They are off I-85 but you have to make a few turns to get into their parking lot. BUT!!!! Once there it is heaven. They have a large menu and I am partial to their Engineers Plate with onion rings and the best hush puppies ever. The service... More

Some of the best Q I've ever had. Thanks to the hotel clerk who recommended R&R. Incredibly reasonable prices and good portions. The staff was so friendly and efficient. If I lived in the area it would probably be a weekly visit. Highly recommended! Pork paradise.

Local place off the beaten path but easy to get to. This is well worth the short drive for local BBQ. Had the Brunswick soup to start and made the mistake of not getting the hush puppies because I was getting some with my BBQ. Great soup with lots of pork and corn a very good broth as well. It's...

This railroad themed restaurant featured North Carolina pork barbecue. Very good food, served hot and fresh. Service was friendly and prompt and the price was fantastic. Easy going, casual experience. Very good after long day in the car!

I arrived in North Carolina a day early to see a bit of the city (Kannapolis / Concord) before the Memorial Day races at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. I ask my host the week before for some restaurant recommendations and R & R BBQ was one of two places I was told to go. After conducting a poll of total... More

My family and I love to have a casual dinner at R & R. Great pulled pork sandwich and ribs and chicken. Order the BBQ plate with two side to go and it's plenty of food for 2 people. Limited hours on weekends. Very casual environment with waitresses that speak their mind but usually keep it friendly :)
