131 is a dinning experience. Great food and service. BB Ribs are to die for. You never leave this place complaining about anything. Strongly recommend to all visitors to Charlotte. Several different locations around Charlotte, my personal favorite is Huntersville. Mike Warren

1st time visiting and looking forward to return visit. Cornbread is delicious and the salmon is so good (did not like the side that comes with it).
