We stopped here after a trip to Elk River Falls and LOVED the smoked barbecue!! I also loved the homemade slaw (which didn't have mayonnaise in it...yay!) At least I didn't taste any but it had onion in it which really topped it off!

Excellent food in every bite. Wonderful, friendly staff going above the call of duty. They even offered us a sampler of sides we didn't order so we could experience them. Very good stuff!

Their food is great! If you have a gluten allergy, please just get the pork and don't use any of the sauces. They weren't aware that the sauce on the chicken had gluten in it. I ordered the combination plate and had eaten a little of it before thinking to ask. It is delicious but I did get sick because... More

We were told this was the best restaurant in town. After a day of hiking on the BRP, we decided we needed to "cleanup" before we went out to eat. Food is ordered at the counter and brought to your table. The food was very good for a casual restaurant, and reasonably priced. Just remember, no need to get dressed... More

I was expecting delicious BBQ everything! When we first walked in ... the place is very simple, you order your meal like in a... More

Went by for a much needed lunch after hanging out on the mountain the night before. Everything was deep southern style BBQ all the way. Sauce on the side is always the way to go. Good flavors.

This is by far one of the best meals we have ever had at a barbeque! It was easy to find, great location, the menu had lot's to choose from and the staff were wonderful! They had several different sauces to choose from and all of them were great!

We visited while we were touring the Blue Ridge Parkway. My husband had the smoked chicken and said it was the best meal he had on the trip. My meal was simple but good. I would give it a 4, but had to give it a 5 because it was my hubby's favorite meal!!!

There is no denying that Carolina BBQ has some great food at a good price. However, had I known how bad the service was and how difficult communication was going to be, I would never have booked them to cater my wedding. The caterers were an hour late and were not set up until after my guests had been seated... More

Me and my family ate her Monday evening. The atmosphere is really country and family friendly. Although a couple of waitresses/ cashiers needed longer shorts. The food was great and we love the bluegrass gospel music that's played. We will definitely be back.
