This nice little place was outside of Charlotte. It was right off the highway. It was delicious. 3 kinds of sauces yummm! Easy to find. Great staff!

I like this location better than the Gastonia location. The service is decent, and the food is reasonably priced. The lunch specials are pretty good during the week. It is a nice place to grab some BBQ.

They have the best BBQ in Gaston County. I usually go for carryout and 80 percent of my visits I am annoyed by the teenage girls that are hired to run the checkout. Definitely have to check my order for correctness and condiments. Once I stood waiting while my order sat on the counter for 10 minutes and finally had... More

Food was ok. Building is old and decor is outdated. Service was fair. Prices are average for this type of food. Lunch for 2 runs over $20.

I like to go to bbq restaurants that actually use wood fires and you can see and smell the smoke in the parking lot. That way you know it's the real thing. I also believe that the meat should be able to stand on its own without sauce. Don't get me wrong, their sauce is really good and reminds me... More

We braved the light rain and fog to travel to "Christmas Town, USA" in tiny McAdenville on a week night in December. The weather kept traffic to a minimum so it was a pleasant trip. Since we had left early, we planned to eat in McAdenville after we saw the Christmas lights, and the reviews of Hillbillys sounded good. Plus... More

My group went here for dinner after walking around McAdenville to view the Christmas Lights. I ordered a Grilled Chicken Salad. The waitress gave me a big salad bowl and said I can visit the Salad Bar to get all the fixings and then the grilled chicken would arrive with everyone else's meals. The Salad bar was average and even... More

Thank you for visiting the Lowell location. In December, the towns of Lowell and McAdenville are so excited to see all the different cars that come from all around to see the lights. Not too many restaurants have salad bars anymore. I am sorry you didn't see the different types of salad dressing we offer. Our Ranch is homemade and... More
