If you are looking for some good old Southern comfort food and outstanding BBQ, you should try this place. The BBQ was perfectly cooked and seasoned sauces were excellent. It's very casual and also located just beside the W&OD Bike Trail. It would make a great destination for people or families on a bike outing. There are tables inside and... More

The setting is extremely informal indoors and there is ample outdoor seating as well. It is conveniently located to the W&OD, so they have made this a very bike-friendly stop. This is a walk up and place your order operation, so don't anticipate a server. I'm not a huge fan of BBQ, but I make an exception for theirs. Don't... More

Good BBQ served with generous sides. Sides choices are usually, coleslaw ( fresh, lightly dressed), potato salad, baked beans, Mac and cheese, and green beans ( the southern kind with ham ). You order at the counter and seat yourself. Staff is friendly. Sitting in the old Partlow store looking at the pig knickknacks and people watching the bicyclers who... More

We've used Carolina Brother's a couple of times, ordering in advance and then picking up "the goods". The food is excellent! As a sit down place, it's a bit of a dive, having previously been the Partlow General Store in Ashburn. Guess from that perspective, it's kind of neat. From a service perspective, it's counter service so don't expect to... More

Visiting from out of town, our friend brought us here. Kind of set up the same way a lot of good Texas BBQ joint...simple layout, simple menu. The pork was nice and tender. The dripping sauce had just enough spice and the BBQ sauce counterbalanced it well. Definitely worth the visit. Perfect lunch spot.

Very good Carolina Pit BBQ. The sides are include an excellent choice of baked beans, mac & cheese to name a few. Always fresh and tasteful. Recommends for a casual lunch by yourself or with friends and family.

It has become our tradition to pick up some pulled pork and brisket (with the sides, of course) and eat under the fireworks on the 4th of July. And don't forget to get extras for the 5th of July! It's so good, I just might sell the grill! Don't miss this.

Great BBQ! If you go on a Saturday, make sure you go in time to get their brisket. Delicious! Their pulled pork and ribs are great too.

Wife and I decided to try a new BBQ place about 15 miles from home at Ashburn, Virginia. We thought this entire area was a made-up town with suburban malls. Following the GPS we suddenly found ourselves back in time to the original old town Ashburn and there was Carolina Brothers BBQ in what must have been a 1930S (?)... More
