Best Barbecue in the Charlotte Area: Winner

Kyle Fletcher’s in Gaston County defeated Red Bridge’s of Shelby in the Charlotte Observer Tournament of Food: Barbecue edition. Prior to the finale, Fletcher’s beat Bill Spoon’s in the semi’s, with Bridge’s taking out Bobbee-O’s.

I will reserve judgement on Kyle Fletcher’s until I actually taste it, but I will be expecting big things if it beat out Red Bridge’s. 

It’s not exactly Lexington, not quite Eastern; it’s its own thing – and a remarkably successful one we’d be proud to feed visitors.

“I’ve been twice now,” says Purvis, “and both times, I found myself surprised and delighted – and wondered why I don’t hear more talk about this place among the barbecue fanatics.”

Kyle Fletcher’s, you have officially been added to the list. and I look forward to checking you out.
