I had never been here, but heard it was the place to go for great BBQ in Shelby. I was not disappointed. When we walked in the door a guy named Reed welcomed us like we had been coming there for years. The BBQ chopped pork plate was great and the hush puppies were the best that I have had... More

Have eaten BBQ all over North Carolina and the us. This BBQ is average, probably great for Shelby, but not greater than average for NC. Service was great, the girls will take care of your requests and make sure you are doing OK. The sides were good. The tea was real good. They were busy and steady even with the... More

The BBQ at Alston Bridges is better than most BBQ places that serve chopped pork plates. The hush puppies are very good and go well with the BBQ and sauce.

Alston Bridges never disappoints. The best NC BBQ. The best service. Pork or Beef. Ribs or Chicken. Sandwich or plate. I've eaten here literally thousands of times. Honestly never a bad meal.

Wonderful BBQ in my unhumble eastern NC snobbish opinion. Love the barbecue, hush puppies and the server we always make sure to get -Jackie! Google their location and enjoy some mighty fine BBQ.

Well let me say I won't be making any friends of the locals. I had heard the one of the Bridges BBQ joints won top honors for BBQ in NC. My son and I decided to give it a try. This is not the location on 74 but the one in town. I guess I'm in the wrong part of... More

We go there almost every week. The waitress knows what we want before we sit down. I always get the 5 rib plate with double baked beans and BBQ slaw. The meat is so tender it falls off the bone

We were traveling and read this was a good bbq place. WOW were we disappointed. The choices were slim, the ribs were tough, the sauce was runny and boring. They do not serve alcohol, and the service is average. We would never go there again, nor do I recommend it to anyone.

Best western North Carolina BBQ! A must stop when in Shelby, NC. And, something different to try is their hotdog with red slaw. Slaw with ketchup built in, extra yummy!!
