A trip to Charlotte wouldn’t be complete without sampling the local ‘cue - barbecue that is, City Smoke style. Though we pay tribute to the styles made famous throughout the Carolinas, Tennessee, Kansas & Texas, ours is all pork of all the time.
Our menu features ‘cue done the old fashioned way, low n’ slow! From the pulled pork, ribs, and brisket to the rotisserie chicken, camp trout and shrimp n’ grits, City Smoke brings a kick to the classic southern favorites. With peanuts on the tables, a kitchen counter bar with a bird’s eye view of all that is going on, over 50 beers with an emphasis on local breweries, a full bar featuring over 75 whiskies, live music every Wednesday, Friday & Saturday, a late night bar menu, the best bacon bourbon bloody mary you can find, and the only spot in NC with Saintsbury wine on Tap, City Smoke offers something for everyone.
No folk lore, family feuds, outright lies or tall tales here, just ‘cue done right, and the occasional secret recipe...
City Smoke is located in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, adjacent to the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center on the corner of College & Trade Streets with an atmosphere that is central to everything Uptown Charlotte has to offer.
