BB&T Ballpark

If we're talking North Carolina, we're talking barbeque -- and the Charlotte Knights (Class AAA; International League) are adding some pretty good barbeque to the BB&T Ballpark offerings, via Queen City Q.

Queen City Q will become the Official BBQ of the Charlotte Knights and “The Q” will have locations inside BB&T Ballpark for all games and events. 

“We really wanted to work with a great locally-owned business to provide delicious food and something unique for our fans,” said Chris Semmens, VP of Sales. “Their outstanding BBQ and commitment to our fan experience make them the perfect choice. It’s great that they are our Uptown neighbors too.”

“We’re incredibly excited to be working with the Knights and can’t wait to serve all of their fans,” said Bryan Meredith, Queen City Q’s Managing Partner. “BB&T Ballpark is an amazing facility and will be a really fun venue to enjoy baseball and more. We’ll be serving up a variety of great BBQ and some ballpark-only surprises. Plus, we’re continuing one of the main reasons we opened our restaurant in the first place, and that’s to create jobs.”

The “Q” serves up a melding of styles from eastern North Carolina, western North Carolina and South Carolina and is created in house from homemade recipes. No, there's no way we're going to play favorites among these three giants of style in the Carolina barbecue world.
