This is a new restaurant in the Steele Creek area of South Charlotte. They serve great fresh food with real sweet southern hospitality!! They make everything from scratch everyday...including the pie crusts and do all their hickory smoking of the meats on site. I couldn't believe how great EVERYTHING I had was. My server was so friendly and knowledgable, she made me feel right at home. I can't wait to tell all my friends and to take them there. If you don't live near the area...its really not that far from uptown or the Ballantyne area. For those of you that live on or visit lake wylie, this is a great place to call ahead and order and pick it up to feed you and your friends. You can buy the food in bulk!! Trust me its worth the drive. I reccommend the onion rings, angus beef brisket, baby back ribs or really anything on the menu!! The mac-n-chz is to die for!! Oh yeah...they even have a DRIVE-THRU and they CATER for any occation:)

Read good reviews about this BBQ joint, and had to try it out. I try to be impartial and not let me personal preferences color my review. But, it just didn't do it for me. The BBQ was "good", but not great. Not enough smoke flavor (if any) and no bark. You know how you go to a BBQ place and it tastes and smells FRESH, as in, they just pulled it off the smoker and pulled it apart within the past hour? Not reheated.. not chopped and shredded and put into a huge bucket then scooped out later? Spoon's tastes like the later.. like maybe it was older BBQ that was heated up. Might not be true, but it's my first impression. I would go back if I were in the area, but not if I felt like BBQ and had other options.
I love barbeque and try a lot of places. This barbeque is my favorite and the stew is original so you won't find it anywhere else. The ribs, hushpuppies, beans, tea are great. I talked to the owners and this is an independently owned and operated business and they take great pride in being the best with open pit cooked over hickory wood. The aroma tells it! I have eaten here since 1971 and the business was at another location before that so the experience shows. I often take guest and they are always impressed. If you never tried this one, you gotta try it.
