As far back as they can remember Ryan, his brother Jim and his dad, Namon, have dreamed of opening a restaurant. Through the years, any time a great family recipe came to them they put it aside hoping one day their dream would come true. Ryan grew up being compared to his grandfather, McKoy, and at the age of 13 he decided that would be the perfect name for the family's restaurant.
Ryan went on to run some of Charlotte's most successful nightclubs and restaurants, while Jim concentrated on the art of BBQ and perfecting the family recipes. After retiring from a successful career as a photographer, Namon decided now was the time to make his dream a reality. McKoy Register was known for his love of family, friends, good food and good times. He is the inspiration behind this concept. What makes McKoy's Smokehouse and Saloon different from the competition is they strive to make all their guests feel at home. Whether it be biker or banker, everyone is treated as if they're a guest at McKoy's home. Best BBQ in Charlotte. Swing by today for Good Times, Good Food and Good Friends.
