Fodor's Review

It's notoriously hard to find good barbecue in Charlotte, but this spot with late hours and a full bar bucks the trend. Located in the funky Plaza Midwood neighborhood, it carries a full range of sauces and meats, and keeps its wood-fired smoker burning 24/7. This is no hole-in-the-wall joint, but instead a fun and modern-looking place with something for just about every kind of BBQ lover. The beef brisket is excellent, especially with a half-lean, half-fatty plate. For

a special treat, order the banana pudding. It's some of the best in the city—or anywhere.
