Ate at Ranucci's today - here's my take:

A little too expensive for the portions. Friendly, fast service. The place looks nice.Booths a little too tight.

Bar B Q OK - not the best in the area. Meat was moist and tender but little if any smoke flavor. Sauces were OK. Portion a little small, but I understand the economy is bad.

Four hushpuppies with order - small but tasty.

Mac & cheese a little strange - it was shells and white cheese. Didn't taste baked..a little blah.

Brunswick stew is not Carolina stew/hash ( as they call it down east). It was a watery soup-like stew with chunks. True B. stew is somewhat pureed and thick. But, the flavor was good.

Slaw- not good! It tasted like that coarse chopped bagged cabbage with mayo stirred in it.If they are putting that on those "Cat Pharm classic" burgers..well, you can forget it!

Beans - I didn't care for the taste but they did taste smoky ( bottled?).

I would say the meal as a whole was mediocre. I doubt I will go back as I like Kyle Fletcher and Hillbilly's better - and a better value. Glad I tried it though. I kind a wish they would have opened a good Italian restaurant in there.

Very bad location. To much anchored competition. No real draw. No beer/wine. Price not in line with neighborhood/locals. Sounds like another Deep Forrest.

Stopped in yesterday and grabbed a menu. Place looks great and smells a lot better than the old grill. We will be going for lunch today.

I'll try and put a review after I have eaten there a few times. Not sure why anyone would post a review when a place just opens.
Girl at the front said they would be getting beer and wine shortly.

anyone that gives a damn what anyone rates about a restaurant is an idiot. Who cares if you dont like it? Maybe someone else does. Keep your "ratings" to yourselves. Noone gives a crap what you think.

You post a review because you went and experienced it. If they were not ready for opinions, they should not have opened until they were. And, the recipes are the recipes - right?. The place really had no smell at all. I wouldn't have known I was in a BBQ place by looking without the sign. I tried to be fair but honest in my review. Others my disagree - that's fine - I have no other motive than to tell you my experience. With anything else on the internet, you can take it or leave it. I don't know the people who own it or work there - I am telling you my take as a customer. If that bothers you - then the problem is yours, not mine. Have a good day.

I thought this forum was because people DO want to know what others think. To tell somebody to keep their "ratings to themself" is about as stupid as it gets. We should be supporting the people that are trying to bring business to Belmont.

Stopped in and had a BBQ sandwich. Not to good. Price to high. Service was good. They will not be able to compete with the prices at Kyle Fletchers. Plus his food is good. Hope they can overcome an adapt.

Listen - I don't mean no harm...but if a Yankee is gonna try to fix food that is popular in the south and sell it to you, wouldn't it make sense to at least make like people like it? Just sayin'.

Momma didn't charge her six dollars for a burger. LOL. BTW - the BK burgers are better than what Ranucci is serving.

Well, we went for lunch yesterday with the kids and thought it was very good. Didn't think the portions were small at all.
