I visited Garys Barb-BQ. on 9/20/13 and the food was Out of this world. I would definutly eat there again if I have the occation to visit that part of NC again. I drove all the way from New Jersey and found my dream meal. The Resteraunt clean and rustic with all the vintage signs on the walls The place was packed with people and my Sweetheart and I were the only Blacks for miles but the waitress 'Nicole' made us feel at home and comfortable. We had a good time Hope to see you again soon 'G'~
I love their burgers so much – This is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. It has a very nice environment, good service and the food is absolutely delicious. Nearly every day I'll go there and get a burger with onions, lettuce, pickles, mayonnaise, ketchup and mustard. The best burgers that I've ever tasted. One of the things that stood out to me about the burgers is the way they apply their onions; instead of shredding them and scattering them across the bun or burger, they'll place a thin slice of onion allowing a very well distributed taste. Strongly recommended.
Best BBQ food in the South! – Gary's BBQ is one of the best restaurants in North Carolina. Almost every time I go there, I get a footlong hotdog and a Cheerwine. I recommend it to everyone who likes BBQ.
Pros: Great Food
Cons: Only opened til 9 o'clock
BBQ 'n Dogs not to mention the fries - Great Service !!! – Come and get it... 'nuff said
Brings back memories – As some people have said, I went to high school at South Rowan, and China Grove Middle School.
It is a place that always brings back happy memories. The food of course is what draws me the most, but it's just a good down home place to go and eat.
If you go back through that area, I highly encourage you to stop by and try it. You will be happy when finished.
Gary's also does catering, a little bit of everything, delicious and affordable. – Gary just finished catering a wedding rehearsal dinner for us in Kannapolis, NC about 8 miles south of China Grove. The meal was barbecued pork, barbecued chicken, barbeque (red) slaw, baked beans, buns, banana pudding and sweetened iced tea with all the condiments, utensils, plates, everything included. He does a turnkey job, uses his own tables and workers to serve the meal. We had about 70 people in the wedding party. The cost was very, very reasonable and everyone had a great meal. If you went away hungry, it was your own fault. Gary served up large portions to begin with, but there was no problem with seconds, thirds, or you name it. He even gave us a couple of plates to take home. I am not sure how far from China Grove he will cater, but recommend him highly for any event where you want a good down home meal. We will definitely use him again in the future.
best barbecue sandwich and service and atmosphere. like Happy Days. old Coke signs and... – best barbecue sandwich ever..pepper vinegar and everything you need has been thought of. locals are flooding to it..servers are fast and enthusiastic.. they know they work at a special place..interior decor is old time Coke signs..and old Thunderbird cars in a museum..spacious..great rest rooms..makes you want to open your own place when you go home..this is the eatery that international visitors would say is so American!!..i am going back every chance I get!!..barbecue chicken next..prices are right!!
Possibly best in the world?!?! – I am from Pennsylvania & we do not have barbecue places up here, my wife's family lives in the Charlotte/Salibury area in NC & she first took me to Gary's about 4 years ago while visiting. MAN, THIS STUFF ROCKS!!!! I have tried others in the area & down south in general, but Gary's is the absolute best! The servers are friendly, quick & efficient, but most of all the food is FABULOUS!!! My wife brings it home for me in a cooler when I cannot go down there with her, & it lasts about 1 day here!! Thanks Gary's, & keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best BBQ Ever! – I a grew up in China Grove, NC as well and I love Gary's! It has an awesome atmosphere and awesome food! Highly reccomended!!!! A++++ I am craving it now!
best BBQ in the area – I grew up in China Grove and moved to Charlotte about an hour away and I've yet to find a real hometown BBQ like Gary's. When I come home thats where I always stop to eat I've brought friends from charlotte into Gary's to eat and they've loved it. there's nothing better a BBQ salad w/ Ranch dressing :)
