My man Stan brought me my order and asked me, Can you hannelit? Ten minutes later I asked my man Stan, Were seconds included in my combo? Stan was my server at the Bar-B-Q King. He was great! The food came out fast. The BBQ was ! I really like the vinegar based bbq in North Carolina. I definitely recommend this place!
I am ashamed to say as a native of Charlotte who has been here all my 41yrs on earth, that I am just now trying them! Oh how did I let this happen!! I tried the Po boy burger and it was so dang good! Cant wait to go back and try fish, chicken and of course some bbq!
Great value, classic drive up spot, and good service. The chicken was SO good - especially the BBQ (seemed vinegar based?)
A delicious blast from the past. I ordered the minced bar-b-que sandwich, onion rings, and a Coke. The bar-b-que sandwich was really good. The sauce on the sandwich gave the pork great flavor but was not overwhelming. The onion rings had a perfectly crunchy batter on them and the size of the regular order is huge. Service was very quick and friendly. I'm sure the carhops, who seemed to be older gentleman, are loved by the regular visitors. I was there at approximately 1:45 p.m. on a Wednesday afternoon and there were several other cars. This is clearly a very popular drive-in style restaurant.
We ordered a hot dog, grilled cheese, BBQ Chicken platter, and a chicken tender platter. The hot dog was cold like it had been sitting on the counter all day, the bun was also cold - not steamed or soft, the chili was dry and flavorless. I asked for cheese and there was a cold slice of cheese on it. The BBQ Chicken was so gross. It was soggy and bland. The chicken tenders were ok and the grilled cheese was good. The fries were good and the slaw is ok. I was so excited to try this place and was terribly disappointed!! The server was less than friendly!
