Tasty 'Cue

Stopped in here for a late lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. Had the half-rack of ribs with two sides - baked beans and mac and cheese. The portion was large - at first I though they gave me a full rack but it was actually a half. The sauce was delicious and the meat came off the bone easily. My... read more

Located in "old Ashburn" in a former general store (I think) this place has the best BBQ I have ever eaten, and believe me, I have eaten a LOT of BBQ! My favorite is the pulled pork with 2 sides. I usually get the macaroni and cheese baked to perfection, and whatever is the vegetable of the day. These can... More

We have been patronizing Carolina Brothers for years. Their pulled pork BBQ is awesome, and their sides (baked beans, slaw, etc.) are also excellent. Their pork ribs have only disappointed me once (a little dry), but every other time have had great flavor and came off the bone easily. The only thing I don't like is that when I go... More

This place is tasty! Being from Texas I do like BBQ... This is not Texas BBQ but good in it's own way! Love the pulled pork and the sides are amazing!

Consistently great BBQ with the traditional sides (beans, slaw, mac & cheese) all being well above average. Not fancy, yet great BBQ for eat in or take out.

This converted general store is the perfect venue for this place, rough tables, wide plank floors are the proper settings for this barbecue. You can get pulled pork or chicken, have the usual sides, baked beans, cornbread, potato salad and a glass of sweet tea to go with it.

Carolina brothers is just really good fresh BBQ. The place is warm and friendly and has a nice outside seating area right on the bike path. The sides are also great. My family loves the baked beans. Go enjoy!!

In a wood-floored country store, this very simple place serves really good pulled pork NC style BBQ. Sides are limited in choice, but the cole slaw was fairly good (a little too sweet but fixed with a splash of the vinegar BBQ sauce). The daily vegetable was green beans, and they were well seasoned and flavorful (and not overcooked). Only... More

We start/end our long runs on the W&OD trail at Partlows for a reason: Carolina Brothers BBQ! There's nothing quite as satisfying then sinking your chops into a nice BBQ sandwich after a long run; especially on a cold day! My favorite is usually the pork but the chicken is equally delicious and I'm NEVER disappointed. It's a 'country haven'... More

Love this place! You can choose either pork, chicken or brisket as your barbecue. Excellent, excellent cue! The sauce is so delicious and can be added to the sandwich if you wish. You can purchase the sauce and barbeque and take It home or eat it on the premises. The restaurant is right off the WO&D so it is a... More
