This place has great ribs and bbq. The staff is friendly, and they have your food out in no time. Whether you're traveling through, or a Mooresville native like me, you have to try this place. It's what North Carolina BBQ is all about! Awesome.

Based on the reviews we went. It a very small (5-6 tables) place. It was a Saturday evening and not a soul was there. It must be a take out place. I stood around a minute inside trying to figure out what the draw was. No one came out to say hello. Either they have a jam up catering business... More

The food was fine but nothing special. I expected more because of all the great reviews. I don't need to go back.

We stopped on the way during a long road trip. The food was great. Large portions and a great value for the money. The service was nice and the people were very friendly.

The BBQ pork meat was "mushy" as though it was over cooked and the honey BBQ sauce was too sweet for my taste. Yes it was a large portion but I didn't like it enough to finish the sandwich. The coleslaw was not homemade and not very good. I can check it off of BBQ joints I've tried in NC... More

the ribs are awesome; a little $$$$ for what you actually get. I should have learned after the first time this happened to me -- CHECK YOUR ORDER BEFORE LEAVING THE RESTAURANT! I got dinner to go recently -- ordered 1/2 rack ribs, mac-cheese and GREEN Beans - well, they were not green - but brown and baked. I didn't... More

Dear Paige, We are truly sorry that you were not 100% satisfied with your meal. We strive for excellence, but sometimes an order or two will slip through the cracks. It is almost impossible to be able to check on our guests' satisfaction when they order for take-out. We do have a policy that is you are not completely satisfied... More

My Father and I went at lunch time during the middle of the week and were more than happy with the service. The shop was being run by one person. He made sure that we were greeted promptly and welcomed us graciously as first time customers. Despite having to wait a little longer for the food than I might have... More

Staying at a local hotel, I was looking for a place with delivery. Ordered over the phone after finding them through a google search. The owner/chef Randy was excellent on the phone suggesting menu picks. Ordered a full rack entree with Honey BBQ sauce, onion rings and baked beans. Everything was delivered within 30 mins. In fact due to longer... More

Was looking for a place to eat on the way home from the Belk Bowl. Found Carolina Ribs and decided to give it a try. Were glad we did. Two people got the ribs & both decided they were cooked to perfection. One of us got the pulled pork platter. Delicious! Portion was so generous that there was enough left... More
