What a little gem this place is! It is located right off the W&OD trail and was a great stop for lunch for our family on our bike ride one weekend.

Sunday BBQ was very good at Carolina Brothers, the ribs were tender and seasoned well, the sauces was ok not up to par with the food, side order were decent. The chicken is pulled, no whole chicken or quarters. Overall very good BBQ at a good price.

I love this little sliver of "NC home-style" nestled in the hub-bub of Ashburn.

This is our go-to BBQ place in Ashburn. Great all around. Stop for lunch or a snack along the bike trail. Get an order to go for dinner. Call ahead for catering. Everything here is tasty and their sauce is delicious. One heads up--their mac-n-cheese is homemade and does NOT taste like Kraft or Velveeta!
