Everything I've had here has been fantastic, catfish, chicken, pulled pork, brisket, sausage. Collard greens are perfectly southern, fried okra can't be beat in the area, and the black eyed peas are just right. They also have real sweet tea and a great selection of...More

This is my favorite (and only) place for fantastic BBQ. Their menu is extensive and everything is worth trying. I always order and eat there and take an order to go. My favorite is the 2-way with chicken and ribs. All the sides are good...More

I always look forward to eating at Carolina Kitchen, and I have not yet been disappointed. I love their brisket and greens. There is enough food that you can take left-overs home for an extra meal. We got a large order of ribs as well...More
