Just Plain Good Food!

Carolina BBQ has good food and good service! I am a local and often stop there to eat. I also use them to cater dinners for me. They have excellent smoked chicken, and the best chicken tenders. Their sides are always good. The service is fast, and the servers are all friendly. The place is... read more

Heard this was the best in the mountains....not so! No real smokey taste and pork was dry...the hush puppies were good, as was the cole slaw. The chicken was very good with nice sauces the Mad Dog Sauce was the best, spivey but not overly hot!

We have eaten here a couple times on visits to the area, and it's always good. I always love to try BBQ places and next time we go back to Newland I want to make sure I visit this place again.

Stopped here with my family hile vacationing and had the chicken and the pulled pork. Pork was okay- needed sauce- but the chicken was great! For sides we had BBQ beans, mac and cheese, Cole slaw and fried okra which were all amazing. Reasonable prices for sure! The kids meal we ordered came with sandwich and a side which was... More

When we asked which barbeque was best the server said oh I always eat the chicken. Another server walked up and my wife asked her the same questions and she answered the same, chicken. Their smoked chicken was good. But we didn't take all of their advice and we both ordered the combo plate which included pulled pork. The pork... More

My family and I found this little place as we traveled for the holidays. We were all hungry and happen to drive by and decided to give this place a try. We were not disappointed. The adults ordered the small BBQ plates which provided more than enough food. Our kids had the BBQ sandwiches, which they devoured without whispering a... More

Great food! Staff very friendly! Catfish sandwich was dynamite. Hush puppies may be the best I've ever had. Coleslaw was fresh and with perfect dressing. Of course sweet tea was perfect (3 cups for me) . Others had pulled pork decided mad dog BBQ sauce was the best. We were there in the day but they also host bands. Small... More

Had the best BBQ in a long while. Friendly with a family feel. Had the chicken and ribs with chips. One plate was enough to feed my wife and I. Will be going back.....

We stopped by here in the middle of going from Grandfather Mountain to Mount Mitchell. Their food was awesome. The BBQ was spot on and the 'small plate' was pretty large by comparison to what we're used to here in SC. The meals were a little pricey to not come with a drink but I was still very happy with...
