"Low country" food in Charlotte and local specialities

dpastor | Nov 10, 2011 06:00 AM

We are spending 4 days in downtown Charlotte without a car. I saw there were some local bbq places (merts) and when I looked at the menus on-line there was a special section for low country fare. What is that? And is Merts the place to try it, or should we stick with bbq? Finally, what is the local (non-pork) speciality of Charlotte? I saw someone mentioned pimento sandwiches - is that one? I am not looking for fancy - just for down home.

Thanks in advance.
