I ate at this fairly new barbecue spot up in Rock Hill, SC, over the holidays, and I'm just getting around to logging a post about it. Rock Hill (which is where my parents live, so I'm up there a lot) has long been starved for good barbecue spots, and this one is a nice addition to the town's somewhat limited culinary scene.
The restaurant is in a strip mall off of Cherry Road (2012 Cherry Rd is the address), so it doesn't have a ton of atmosphere. But, right behind the counter you can see the big metal-walled pit where they cook the barbecue, and the scent that hits your nose as soon as you walk into into the place is fantastic.
And, the folks behind the counter were very friendly, and the food came out fast.
Burk's isn't a Carolina classic, but it's a solid joint, and the quality of life in Rock Hill just got a little better.
