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 but my new favorite is the black eyed peas! I always, always take a slice... 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 as the brisket and ate them the next day. Yum. This restaurant is out of... More

It is located in a bit of a industrial strip area. Very quaint and reminiscent of how things are in NC. Being a NC native and current resident in Reno for business, found this restaurant on Yelp. The gentleman behind the counter was friendly and we advised that we would be tough critics since we were from NC. HE said... More

Located in a industrial commercial area, this BBQ joint offered a traditional southern BBQ with 4 various sauces. I tried the Honey, Mild and Georgia sauces and found them to be very good. Overall a polite crew and good food! I ordered a combination plate and found the ribs to be fantastic!

Had burgers for lunch here. Very large patty. The food wa good, but pretty pricey. They specialize in barbeque, and I am told it's exceptional.The prices were just way above my budget.

Very good catfish dinner or sandwich. Good sweet tea--the only place I know in Reno. They do take out and cater. Environmental-- They use styrofoam for take-out, so we only rarely order it. Everything goes in a plastic bag.
