Was North Carolina’s First Barbecue Restaurant in Charlotte (and Not Lexington)?

This blog post may be from 2012, but as it turns out the first barbecue stand/restaurant may have been here in Charlotte a good two decades before the Lexington stands set up shop outside the courthouse. According to Google Street View, 13 South Church Street is the corner of Church and W. Trade, possibly where King’s Kitchen is currently located.

While Charlotte may not have the best reputation for barbecue (the blog post above mentions both Shelby and Lexington as better destinations for barbecue that aren’t too far away), it’s kind of cool to learn that the city does have some history.
