Good Food, Great Portions

Varied menu with generous portions. Better than average BBQ and sides. Quick service by attentive wait-staff.

I have had combo platters in Kansas City, Texas, Memphis, and yes even Charlotte, NC. To start the ribs were good, however thats where the good ends... The pulled pork from tonight tasted like tuna, and no amount of sauce, either eastern, or KC was going to fix that mess. The baked beans, lacked any traditional flavor, meat, or otherwise,... More

R&R's is popular spot for bbq in Concord. It it close to the Poplar Tent exit off of I-85, but tucked a bit out of the way. Nevertheless, lots of locals know how to find it. The dining room is very informal, but features a railroad theme. There are even model railroad trains running along tracks suspended from the ceiling.... More

Always good, favorable barbecue. They have the BEST Ranch Dressing (for BBQ Salad), french fries and hushpuppies. BBQ is good, just not great....and really wish they had more BBQ selections.....and more combos. But if you are just looking for some good, simple BBQ.....you will like this place.

I grew up in the Eastern part of North Carolina. BBQ is definitely a regional thing. Eastern NC BBQ is very different among BBQ. The sauce is a ginger base with hot (generally cayenne pepper). Even the slaw is hot. I live in GA while I like the sweet form of BBQ that you find in the southeast, I really... More

Great food, relaxing atmoshpere, good prices. Also, we saw Toby Keith there. I'm not kidding, he came in before his concert in the area. They really have great food though, we tried the brisket, chicken, ribs, fried okra, mac and cheese, and a dessert among other things that was very good. Prices are very reasonable.

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.
