Blacks is by far the best in Gaston County. It isright up there with Alston on Grover in Shelby. Love the taste and quick curbside service.

I've heard and now read the reviews about how great this place is but I left disappointed. Consistency of meat is like toothpaste. Little if any smoke on the meat. Virtually no spiciness. Then they put the sandwich and toast/press the sandwich? This isn't either nc style, SC style or any of the other bbq styles I've ever tried. No... More

For local flavor and traditional Gastonia style bbq slaw you can't beat Black's BBQ. They have the best sliced pork sandwich anywhere, and the fries and onion rings are always hot and delicious! One of the few places that still have car hops that will bring your food out so you can eat in the car! Don't be fooled by... More

Love it, Love it, Love it. There is nothing like Black's anywhere but Black's. I used to live in a duplex in the historic district and my neighbors in the other apt were a sweet couple, a little older than I. (A lot like having parents.) I knew that Black's was their favorite place, so I would meet my neighbor... More

Again, Black's BBQ is a family owned business and has been around for over 60 years! Food is out of this world. Best BBQ around and please try the bbq slaw! Also, have hamburgers, etc...but my favorite is the bbq. Don't miss out on a local secret!

Blacks BBQ has been a favorite of mine growing up here. The BBQ slaw is a must! The club sandwiches are the absolute best! Top it off with a Sundrop!!

Absolute best BBQ sandwiches and BBQ slaw in Gastonia! Not to mention their grilled chicken sandwiches are great, also. Affordable prices and friendly staff.

I grew up in Mt. Holly, I remember the weekends when my family would go there to eat almost every Sat. I'm a retired Army Officer (LTC). And no matter where I was in the world my family would at least every other month go to Black's and buy me 5 lbs. and sometimes even 10 lbs. of that GREAT... More

I have recently started working in Gaston County. I am amazed at all of the great restaurants available. BBQ in the south means pork. There are a variety of methods for sauce and cooking as well. I enjoy trying them all. One of the first places I was taken was R.O.s. I found myself craving the slaw. Of course, listening... More
