Barbeque and more!

Looking for a good barbeque place in the Mt Airy area? Don't miss CarterQue and be sure to ask for a sauce testing to try out the four main sauces available. The brisket and pit beef were first rate.

Have been to CarterQue several times with both family or friends. First off let me say that the ribs are top notch! Excellent every time. This time however I was in the mood for something else. Ordered the hamburger and it was excellent. My wife got the pit beef and my daughter had the brisket. They both said that their... More

I ate, for the first time, at CarterQue Barbeque. There are many selections on the menu. Because it was my first time eating there our waiter brought out the four main sauces for tasting. All of them were fantastic. I ordered the pulled pork and ham sandwich with the black raspberry sauce. It was fantastic! I will definately eat here... More

The best BBQ? No. Three of us had the pulled pork platter with different sides(you get to pick two). Between us we had mac n' cheese, French fries, cole slaw and BBQ beans. The cole slaw was pretty good th mac n; cheese was ok, and the BBQ beans were hard. The platter also comes with corn bread and if... More

When a friend recommended this place, and especially the Black Raspberry sauce, I thought he was nuts. I hate fruity flavors in non-fruity foods. But he was right. Our first trip included them offering us tastes of all the different sauces. The entire family choose the Black Raspbery BBQ sauce. Can't recall the last time we agreed on anything, but... More

It took an hour and a half for carry out for just average food. Won't ever go there again. I saw three families dine in and leave while just waiting on a carry out order. No excuses. Tried to get money back but they insisted food was coming out. Manager offered apology but noticing else. Too many choices to put... More

Much better than your average BBQ joint. Pulled pork was free of fat and gristle, cooked and seasoned perfectly. Ribs were done with a dry rub, crusty and delicious. You can add as much or as little of their selection of in-house sauces as you want, or mix them together. The sides are all good; nothing outstanding but certainly adequate.... More

Great beef brisket and pulled pork!!! We have used CarterQue on 2 occasions; Christmas Day meal and our daughter's wedding reception. The food was great at each event. I can't say enough about the brisket, as well as the raspberry sauce. We have been extremely pleased with the food and service from this restaurant. I would recommend them for a... More
