Had the Engineer's plate which was a lot of food! The Chopped pork was delicious and very lean. My daughter had the ribs and loved them. The service was excellent. We will definitely be back. And PS, don't pass on the banana pudding!

Stopped in for lunch and enjoyed it. The bar b que was most and tender with a great smoky flavor. Hush puppies, Brunswick stew, and slaw were my sides and I would say they were average to good. Service was friendly and prompt. Price was fair.

I'm a SC girl and used to eating mustard-based BBQ sauce. That was not an option at R & R so I tried their pepper and vinegar sauce and it was fantastic! Some of the people in my group don't eat spicy so they tried the Sweet and Smoky sauce and said it was really good too. They had the... More

I drive 400 miles to go to this restaurant. Awesome southern barbecue cooking in a great atmosphere. Like other reviews have said you get off the exit and need to make a turn onto a side road that is a little bit hard to see but definitely not that hard to find! Love this place!

We have been eating at R&R since they first opened over 15 years ago. We have never been disappointed with a meal. The chopped pork plates are standard NC barbecue with a choice of sides and sauces. Friday is brisket night and their brisket is very good. The wait staff is always very friendly and efficient.

Next time you come to town for the race... check out where all the locals go for fast service of good food. BBQ with red slaw and Brunswick stew are not to be missed. NOTE they are closed on Sunday.... ;-)

Varied menu with generous portions. Better than average BBQ and sides. Quick service by attentive wait-staff.

I have had combo platters in Kansas City, Texas, Memphis, and yes even Charlotte, NC. To start the ribs were good, however thats where the good ends... The pulled pork from tonight tasted like tuna, and no amount of sauce, either eastern, or KC was going to fix that mess. The baked beans, lacked any traditional flavor, meat, or otherwise,... More
