I had high hopes but after three visits over a year or so I won't be going back. Poor service and the BBQ and sides are nothing to write home about.

I've enjoyed Carolina Bar B Q for years. When we lived overseas it was one of the places we wanted to visit when back in town. I find the chopped tray or the sandwich provides plenty for a meal. Great service and food! We also like the BBQ salad.

Nice little place. Locals hangout. The barbecue is amazing and the best deep fried chicken wings around. Not expensive at all.

Friendly & terrific BBQ Carolina bbq As others have stated, it is worth it to venture a short distance off the highway. We stopped in for lunch & were treated to some terrific southern BBQ. I had the the pork tray, which was only $8 & came with a LOT of pork, 3 crispy, perfect hush puppies & cole slaw.... More
