When I moved to NC, I was not aware of what NC's BBQ style was... where I am from its bbq sauce on grilled chicken! This place has gave me a whole new outlook on BBQ! I LOVE PULLED PORK! lol! Must try!

Kyle Fletchers. The BBQ is actually pretty good, but definitely not the best in town, and definitely not worth standing up waiting for. The place isn't any bigger than your grandma's kitchen and they have crammed as many tables and chairs as they can fit into the place - fine if you feel a need to reach into your neighbor's... More

I have eaten BBQ in many places while traveling the Southeast US. In my opinion Kyle Fletcher makes the best. Before trying his BBQ, my favorite had been from the Lexington, NC area. Kyle changes my choice. His BBQ has plenty of flavor on it's own without the need for sauce. Adding Kyle's sauce or a commercial version such as... More

Good BBQ, but the slaw was weird. It was kind of a cross between red and white slaw. Baked beans could of used a little more brown sugar. But we went for the BBQ, that was good. They have expanded the parking lot. They are cash only, so be prepared. The décor was sports related, mostly UNC and Pittsburg Steelers.... More

Do not miss this BBQ joint, in fact, just follow the smoke trail and you'll find it. Warning....cash only accepted and expect a wait, the line is usually through the door, but it moves at a good pace. I've been frequenting this place since it opened and it never disappoints. Food is hot, smoky, and oh so flavorful. I'm a... More

The smell in the parking lot is amazing, however the lot is way too small. There is a sign on the door saying cash only no debit/credit cards accepted. Fine, a bit cheap on their part, not wanting to pay the fees. What really upset me is they don't even have an ATM!!!! How are you going to be cash... More

Kyle Fletcher's is a gift from heaven. I love this BBQ on a level I cannot put into words. I am from Memphis and KNOW what good BBQ is like. This is NOT the finely chopped/minced BBQ that seems more prevalent. This is good, pulled pork with a lovely tomato thick sauce. I could eat this every day!

Stopped off on way to Charlotte for flight. Encouraged by the packed parking lot but most disappointing meal in a long time. When I put the sweet sauce on the BBQ I thought I had grabbed the catsup bottle by mistake, I hadn't. The baked beans tasted of catsup and very little else as did the slaw. Absolutely not in... More

Small little generic building, limited seating but they appeared to do a lot of take out. Wanted to check out after they won Clt Observer bbq contest. The chopped pork bbq was smokey and moist, delicious. Thought the vinegar sauce was bland. The thicker sauce added nice flavor without being too sweet. Slaw was fine, rather generic - no real...
