Casual restaurant with good BBQ. They offer indoor and outdoor seating. Picnic tables outside next to a bike path. Ribs were meaty, cold, and on the dry side. Pulled pork sandwiches were tasty and more moist than the ribs. Sides were ok. Mac cheese was soft, baked beans were tasty. They offer free water. Indoor seating area is comfortable. Overall,...

This has been one of my favorites since they started as a part-time weekend operation. Very good BBQ at reasonable prices.

The BBQ at Carolina Brothers is so good. It is true Carolina flavor. The setting is quaint and the staff is very friendly.

Order the ribs! I'd recommend them to anyone. Not a fancy place for sure but clean and the food makes up for it. Taking a star off because my food wasn't as hot as I think it should be but other than that everyone was yummy

On some weekends we enjoy buying pull pork from Carolina brothers and beers. My toddler son loves it.

Came here based on Yelp reviews, and I am glad I did. Very rustic interior, but the food is delicious. I got a lunch special with a pork sandwich, baked beans, and mac n cheese. The pork was some of the best I ever had. The beans and mac n cheese hit the spot. As I was leaving I saw... More

We've done their catering or stopped in to bring dinner home. It's classic BBQ. Nothing fancy but always reliable and consistent.

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.

This is far and away the best Carolina style BBQ outside of NC. No question about it. Do yourself a favor and go here.
