The nearly fifty-year-old restaurant, founded by Steve's grandfather, is known for its Eastern North Carolina Style BBQ served with homemade vinegar based BBQ sauce, mustard based coleslaw, and made-from-scratch hushpuppies. The restaurant was recently recognized as one of the ten best BBQ restaurants in the United States. Businesses in Charlotte are anticipating a boost in sales when an estimated 35,000 visitors arrive in the city for the 2012 Democratic National Convention (DNC) September 3-6.
