Absolutely the best tasting BBQ in the Charlotte and surrounding area. The staff is awesomely attentive, friendly, welcoming. I have literally gained 40lbs since this place opened. Try everything from smoked pork ribs to the greens or the smoked shrimp. Sweet Lew's could probably season and smoke a trash can lid and I'd probably try it and love it! This place feels like home. The prices are super affordable also. God bless Sweet Lew's and it's staff. A place that finally made good down home food affordable and fast service. Without loosing the Soul.

The BBQ and brisket are good. The sauces are delicious. The sides are flavorful. Take all of that and put it in an interesting building with attractive dining areas and you have a place worth visiting.
As a brisket fanatic I can say it is absolutely top notch. The Mac and cheese was delicious. Collard greens could use a little work, they make it a 4 star review but this brisket should be winning awards somewhere so its 5. Love sweet lews!
Great food! Love the sodas in the can, especially Cheerwine and the bbq is absolutely great!! Ribs are really tasty and pulled pork is seasoned and smoked perfectly. Sauces go well with all the meats and they even have Alabama white sauce for the chicken or anything else you want to pour it on. Greens and the beans are my favorite sides along with the hush puppies!
We got here at 11:30 on a Friday afternoon, place was packed within 5 minutes. They have a good size parking lot and plenty of nearby parking. Staff was helpful and gave me options of adding entrees as a side when I couldn't make up my mind. The food prep time is very quick, appeared to all be pre-made and served cafeteria style. The ribs were smoky and flavorful, tons of meat and no sauce needed. Very impressed with the flavor of the chopped pork as well. The collard greens were perfect and not soggy, and the mac-n-cheese was delicious. Perfect boiled peanuts! They have sauces, which I personally like because of the vinegar base taste, but the meat was so good you don't need any sauce. They have a good selection of local beers and a medium size indoor dining room with a large outdoor uncovered patio. Go hungry, huge portions. We'll definitely be back!
