Elwood’s BBQ closes in Ballantyne

Elwood’s Barbecue & Burger Bar in Ballantyne has closed its doors.

The restaurant, located at 16139 Lancaster Highway, opened in 2009 and has operated under owner Jeremy Johnson since 2013. It’s unclear when or why the restaurant closed or what will take its place.

Charlotte Restaurant Traffic, a local restaurant blog, reported the closure this weekend. A representative from Elwood’s could not immediately be reached for comment.

Elwood’s served wings, burgers, barbecue and other Southern-style menu items. It had a selection of local craft beer, full bar and covered patio.

The restaurant also recently started participating in Taste of Charlotte and was active in the local community through charitable activities.
