If you like Southern BBQ, this is a good place to stop and have a bite. Three of us shared a BBQ chicken and pork platter served with hush puppies and fries. It was very good, inexpensive, and satisfying. Service was friendly. Being from the north, this was a good intro to our NC trip.

This is a family run restaurant with excellent, friendly service. The main star is the pork, so tender and flavoursome, lightly smoked. The sauce was vinegar based and delicious. Included on the plate was red 'slaw, very particular and which went well with the pork. Finally the food included hush puppies. In truth this was the first time we had... More

If you want good BBQ, the give Bridges a try. The have a red slaw that a lot of people are not accustomed to. Don't knock it till you've tried it.

We really enjoyed the barbecue lunch we had here recently. I like sliced without slaw, my husband likes chopped with slaw, so we tasted a variety. The sliced sandwich was so generous, I had to take half of it home for dinner. A caution - we weren't warned that the extra sauce we were served (in a styrofoam cup) was... More

What is all the hype about? I live near Shelby and could eat at this resturant every day, but I don't. I love BBQ and will ride 100's of miles to try a new BBQ joint and I would not ride any distance to eat here. BBQ is just OK. It is Lexington NC style BBQ and if you want... More
