AAA Inspector Notes
Original to Charlotte, this local chain has earned major acclaim for its award-winning barbecue and tomato sauce sweetened with honey. Enjoy St. Louis-style ribs, Carolina-style brisket and pulled pork, along with hickory-smoked wings and smoked meat-filled tacos and quesadillas. Other specialties include cornmeal-fried catfish and "Beer Can Chicken." Speaking of beer, about 300 labels are available, focusing on craft and local brews, with close to 50 on tap. In warm weather, the expansive patio's picnic tables are the perfect hangout spot.
