I had the large pork sandwich with the spicy vinegar on the side. It had a nice balance of smokiness and was very tender. While it was not the best BBQ I have eaten, you can't go wrong stopping by for some good Que!

The ribs are incredibly meaty and the smoke flavor delicious. The red sauce is also fabulous. Our waitress was wonderful....pleasant, helpful, efficient. A... More

Out does everyone elses ribs! Delicious flavor, meaty, melt in your mouth ribs. Prices are reasonable to. Use to get the rib BBQ Sandwiches, but now prefer the Rib Trays! You'll love the ribs here and you won't be disappointed!

order a large bbq sandwich to go today for around $8. BBQ was quite good, but my big complaint was there wasn't a lot of bbq on the sandwich. I had the baked beans as a side which were quite good as well. would have given 5 starts except for small portion. Sauces were good as well and the waitress/bartender... More

Have been to 521 BBQ about a dozen times now and it is always consistent and good Q. Great sauce and always great service. Great selection on menu in case you don't like BBQ. I have always gotten Q or ribs. Really good place and quick in and out.

Whenever the hubby and I visit family in Charlotte we make the trip to 521 BBQ. The food is always delicious. The ribs are flavorful and the brisket is always tender. I wish I could have the meats shipped to NJ. Other BBQ establishments could learn from 521. Thanks for great food.

Amazing BBQ and by far the best in the south Charlotte/Lancaster area. Always a packed house for lunch. Remember to get a bowl of the frozen from the case on your way out. Perfect in the freezer for that "I don't know what to make for dinner night" ambiance fits the culture of the place perfect. Love this place!
