I love this place! I lived in NC for many years and always found the vinegar sauce to be a little too bitter. Carolina Brothers has amazing smoked BBQ both pulled and brisket. The meat is served without sauce and is great on its own. There sauce is a take on traditional Carolina vinegar sauce with a bit of tomato... More

I had figured from the name that this was "Carolina-style" BBQ. In my opinion, it was a poor imitation. I had high expectations, since a good buddy had highly recommended it; I guess we have different tastes. It's not bad, and it is reasonably priced, but if you have had authentic Carolina BBQ, this does not compare. Also if you... More

Love the BBQ at Carolina Brothers. They are a great pit stop on the bike path. The prices are very reasonable.

We ordered from here for a small event and the food was wonderful. We had two kinds of meat, mac & cheese, and baked beans. Everything was amazing - as always - and the value was outstanding. If you're in Ashburn and you're in the mood for some good BBQ you won't be disappointed with Carolina Brothers. It's a quaint... More

The BBQ is really tasty and there are lots of sauces available. The sides are limited and vary in quality. The green beans are usually hammered, but the mac and cheese is good and so are the cole slaw and baked beans. There are typically a several desserts and corn bread available. There are a lot of choices for your... More

The BBQ is very average. Nothing to brag about but better than nothing. Urban BBQ around the corner is better

However, I thought the food was so-so. BBQ is very subjective and there are many different types all over the country. Although many people rave about this place, it wasn't the type of BBQ that I prefer. If you've ever tried Dinosaur Bar-b-que mostly in New York state, that's what I'm talking about! It's been voted number one in BBQ... More

This non-assuming homey country like eatery (which sits next to the W & O Bike Trail) has the some of the best barbeque in N. Virginia. Chicken, Beef or Port - or tender delicious ribs - your choice. The cuisine is simple 'pulled something' and 2 sides. You can have a platter, which means no bread. The price is so... More

Excellent pulled pork with all the sides you'd expect with pulled pork. And, set in an old general store with the old wood floor still jntact (Partlow Brothers), this place has great character. Now, for all of the nay-sayers, this ain't a gourmet five-star restaurant. It's a pulled pork joint and it delivers exactly that. Good food at a good... More

I have been a customer of businesses in this building since the 70's. Only two that I really liked and that was the Partlow Brothers Store and Carolina Brothers Q. Most old timers in Ashburn know the building as Partlows or as we AVFD volunteers used to think of it the Ashurn Mall. Well I gotta say that Melvin and... More
