Great service great food

We were very impressed with our waitress Donna! She took great care of us from the time we walked in until the time we left. The food was also amazing! For a BBQ place the chicken wings were cooked to perfection!!

Was really disappointed with the Castleberry - like BBQ and frozen food okra and waffle fries. I remember the BBQ as smoked, without sauce until you added your on, not like Brunswick stew. I'm use to Lexington style BBQ and this sloppy, saucy stuff just doesn't cut it. On a good note, my friend had the ribs and he said... More

My husband and I went there for his birthday because we were curious if it was as good as the one they had opened, but closed at a previous location. Donna gave us awesome service! She recommended the sampler platter, which was ideal since we were unsure of what we wanted. Also, the iced tea was perfect - especially for... More

Friends of our were using this restaurant to cater a grad party. We thought we'd try them out to decide if we should too. OMG. We were the 3rd table seated and they just opened for the day. Our food was cold, no taste, and the server advised us the sides weren't homemade. The only thing we liked were the... More

Food was really great!! Service was prompt and friendly!! And the choices they give you for flavoring is out of this world. Carolina ribs on the run was the best choice to eat at in Morrisville NC!!! Rhonda and Randy and along wit other employees made us fill right at home. Great job you guys!!!!

Went here for the first time tonight and loved it! Our server, Donna was awesome. We told her we had never eaten here and asked for her suggestions. She advised my boyfriend to try the sampler platter since he couldn't make up his mind, and it was delicious! A lot of food for not a lot of money! We will... More

I visited Carolina Ribs for dinner and a drink, after work. What great service! Both Donna and Renee were amazing. They were terrific at providing direction on menu selections, and they kept the cold beer coming. I went with the Sampler, which was awesome! The ribs were some delicous. I will be back soon.

I had the sampler plate and it was delicious. Also Donna was our waitress and very friendly. I am a veteran and I always get honored with a 10% discount. I wonder if they will give away free meals on Veterans Day like other local restaurants always do.

Seriously...they are. I go there for lunch on a regular basis to have the spicy full rack of ribs. They do it right and they fall off the bone. Meaty and delish Check this place out - you will be happy you did
