The original jewel in the Ashburn area. Rustic old style general store turned into very casual dining. Downhome staples of BBQ, Mac & Cheese, Cole Slaw, Beans, Corn Bread, along with a wide variety of different sodas. Always busy on a beautiful day with business off the trail. Also try their different sauces. Great experience and the best in Ashburn.

Carolina Brothers is a little place that offers very good BBQ. I sometimes stop by when I am on the W&OD trail. It sits next to the trail, so people come in to get refreshments and all kinds of things. We always think its cool to know where "Today's Pig" came from! The food is relatively good (coming from a...

We love stopping at Carolina Brothers for a quick lunch. Choices are always fresh and tasty! Even the atmosphere of an old country store is enjoyable - lots of history in this building.

Carolina Brothers is a simple place that offers really good BBQ. They have daily specials and today we enjoyed mouth watering brisket with two sides of mac and cheese and potato salad. Others in the group had the pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwiches. All the meat was smoked to perfection and the selection of sauces made good even better.... More

I have stumbled into this bbq place twice now. The first time I was riding the washington & old dominion bike trail and this time we were just out for a drive and happened by. Nothing special just good barbeque. Exactly what you need if you are out for a bike ride or just driving around. I will stop again... More

It was my son's bday and he wanted ribs. He likes the ribs at Applebees but it's a bit of a drive, so I thought we'd try Carolina Brothers right up the road from us instead. It's a smallish local place, which gave it a nice casual feel. Smelled great. Disappointment #1....out of ribs. :( They said next time we... More

Recently visited a relative in D.C. area and went to this BBQ restaurant two times during the week. She tried to entertain with more upscale restaurants but after one trip I requested to go again. I found the site to be comfortable and the food great. Being from the South BBQ pork was my only choice, but relative ate the... More

A+ Top notch barbecue! I have been eating here for years at the least 2x a week, this place is a must try for barbecue enthusiasts. I reccomend everything, all the sandwiches, ribs, and sides. The only downfall is they do not have hush puppies, which is typical for a Carolina bbq meal. I would pay for a fryer if... More

This little hole in the wall is a hidden gem in Ashburn. They not only catered my own graduation party but my mother's 40th birthday as well. Mac and cheese is my favorite and they always have fresh, succulent meat. Definitely make a stop here!
