Hillbilly's BBQ & Steaks opened its first store in June 1989, which is located in Lowell, North Carolina. In 1991 the second store opened in Gastonia, North Carolina. Gerald Duncan and Chris Earle, two good friends started a dream. Gerald was 21 years old and Chris was 27 years old. As of the year 2000 Gerald Duncan became the sole owner. With the help of family and dear friends Hillbilly's has remained a place that family and great food is very important. The philosophy from the very beginning was to serve great food at affordable prices. From the very beginning the cooking was done over an open flame pit with hickory wood and it is still done that way today. Our side dishes are made fresh daily and the customers truly love it that way. With the help of family and friends we work hard to make your dining experience a memorable one.
Gerald, Alex and Aaron Duncan
