BarBQue in Shelby, NC

Just wanted to sing praises about the BarBQue in Shelby North Carolina. If you're ever travelling through Shelby (Cleveland County), be sure to stop at either one of two WONDERFUL places. First is ALSTON BRIDGES BBQ (Hwy 18 South). They have the most delicious BBQ with a terrific vinegar based sauce...delicious hushpuppies with onion and AWESOME sweet tea! The second is BRIDGES BarBQue (no relation to the first Bridges) on Hwy 74 East near Cleveland Mall. Again, outstanding BBQ...the sauce is a little more "peppery" than the other Bridges, and I can't say enough about the hushpuppies and tea!! Even Mickey Rooney has stopped in at BRIDGES BarBQue to eat while in the area! Best wishes and happy eating!
