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

This is a local restaurant with BBQ (yes it is considered BBQ) that has been made in a way that definitely needs exposure. Quick bite to eat, it is sometimes really greasy, and it's cash only (bring at least $40 for a family of 4.) There is now an ATM in the restaurant next to the door. My family has... More

This isn't my favorite BBQ place, like it is for my husband. The BBQ is very mushy, but tastes ok! I guess that's the difference between shredded/pulled pork and minced. The fries are good! I don't want to eat here all the time, but occasionally, it's fine. Cash only, so beware.

A common misconception is that this is barbecue. It is not. It's just roast pork with slaw. That said, it is the best thing you will ever eat. Get it sliced, not minced.

The south is known for a lot of things. One of them should be Black's BBQ. I've been going here since I was a child and love the sliced BBQ Sandwiches.

For those of you new to the area: they only accept cash (there is an ATM now in the lobby.) The sandwiches are listed on the wall facing the door they are ALL good. They will come out to your car if you don't get out fast enough (if you know the menu this is a fast way to get... More
