Today, I met my son and two friends for lunch. I had the barbecue plate with sweet tea. For dessert, I had the homemade sweet potato cobbler. If there is better food and service in Shelby, please let me know.

Food was good, place was packed so service was a little slow. Definitely a local favorite, there wasn't really a menu just a order slip on the table the server filled out. Heads up if you like soda, it's sold by the can.

This place is loved by some regulars because it is the only BBQ they know. Red Bridges BBQ Lodge is the one that is famous for being the best. It is the one the President ate and that celebrities drive from Charlotte for, not Bridges Alston. People here call this place Alston's. The fact that they have listed it as Bridges Alston is a deceptive way to confuse people who don't know better. I have no personal stake in Red Bridges but I rely heavily on TripAdvisor when I'm out of town.. I would hate for anyone to leave Shelby thinking they were duped into average BBQ. But be warned, Red Bridges is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

This is a great place to eat in Shelby. All of the locals eat here on a regular bases. The hush puppies are my favorite. The tea is perfect and the service is excellent. This is a very clean restaurant. The prices are fair. Not ever a long wait.
