Good BBQ

Casual place great BBQ and sides dose take out and catering. Right next tot the W&O Trail so get a lot of bike enthusiast. Very Casual not very big so it would be hard for a big party to dine there. Always busy though

You won't go wrong with Danny's BBQ. Consistently excellent North Carolina flavor and his own-lablel sauce is just like the real deal. We've had them cater several times and just keep going back whenever we need a BBQ fix.

This is a good place to plan a lunch stop if you are traveling the bike path. The menu is rather limited, but the prices are very reasonable for the quantity of food you get. Hot dogs and sides (mac & cheese, cole slaw, baked beans) are $2.50, while the BBQ sandwiches (pork, beef, chicken) are $5. You can get... More

This is also where The Rockefeller Foundations IP address is connected to. Weird!! IP address is 54.86.125.178 and according to google maps it is located at this BBQ joint. I knew they were into eugenics but cooking people?

Carolina Brothers BBQ has the best pull pork available anywhere in the Washington DC area. It can't be beat. The price is right and the quality and quantity is unbeatable.

Best BBQ in the area. We have tried several others but Carolina Brothers is the best. We also like how they help support runners and cyclists on the W& OD

Stopped by on spur of the moment mid-afternoon. It is on a major bike trail, so even though it was very hot a fair number of riders had stopped, too. I had the baby back ribs, mac & cheese and baked beans. At first I thought the ribs were a bit dry, but added some of the table's BBQ sauce... More

Pork sandwich was good. Sauce did not taste like Carolina bbq sauce in that it was very sweet and lacked vinegar taste. I was disappointed in they wrapped the corn bread with plastic cling wrap. Also, no soda tap available. Just drinks in fridge. Still decent bbq and might go back again.

New place that looks older and they got the pork cooked just right. I came early so no lines but I bet it fills up! I will be back!
