Success! Thanks for posting your review of Old Hickory House BBQ Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

I love barbeque and try a lot ...

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 an... view more

I'll never go back and it's not the BBQ!

\r I have been known to travel for good BBQ as will a lot of BBQ lovers. This place was one of the best I have ever found. If you went there for lunch the building was packed. So I started to go after the lunch crowd had left so I could take my time and get better service too. It was a dreary atmosphere in the dining room with no windows and the lights were always dim. I don't remember why I started eating there but... view more

Best Brunswick Stew EVER

We used to live in the area and would love to go to the Old Hickory House, now that we live out of state we make sure we make time to grab gallons of stew to bring back with us each time we visit Charlotte. Everything we have ever ordered there has been awesome. Check it out you won't be disappointed

Better than your food chain of Sonny's BBQ!

This quaint little place may not look busy at times, but the FAST and FRIENDLY service will make you FEEL RIGHT AT HOME and wonder why you don't GO there MORE OFTEN!!! The home-made sauce is to die for, sweet and tangy, made just right for the taste buds!!! There is MORE MEAT on the sandwiches than most places think about putting on theirs-and for the price, you CAN NOT beat it!!! The plates you get 2 sides and th... view more

It's the best BBQ in Western NC

Old Hickory House is a classic BBQ haunt. Real hickory wood embers glowing red impart their smoky flavor to the slow cooked pork and beef treats. Every time I visit the Queen City, I make it a point to stop and smell the smoke ! I consider myself to be a BBQ expert if there is such a thing. The service is great and the food is even better. I usually get the chopped pork plate with a side of ribs, cole slaw, Brunswick... view more

Not Charlotte's Best BBQ

I went here based on the rankings from this site and that it was voted best BBQ in Charlotte.....I have had much better. Also, this place is far from being a ""romantic"" atmosphere.

The B-B-Q is done just right and the brunswick stew is worth a pilgrimage from anywhere in the U.S.!! The meat is tender, seasoned, and in a perfectly-spiced sauce!! And, for goodness sakes, get the brunswick stew!!
