I love this place. I've been here a few times and fell in love instantly with their Carolina style pulled pork sandwich. It was my number one favorite until the last time I was there and tried the beef brisket sandwich for the first time. Now I'm not sure which one I like best. As others have said, it's a... More

Off the beaten path but well worth looking for. Excellent choice of barbeque ribs and hamburgers. Clean store and very friendly staff. Everything we had was very tasty and enjoyable. Wish that I lived closer to go back. Inexpensive.

We live in Harrisburg and were so glad to get a real bbq place nearby! Have eaten here 4 or 5 times and never been disappointed. The pulled pork is great! Really good sauce, too. They give you more than enough fries, so plan to share! Beans and slaw are good sides. Cornbread is a little dry for my taste,... More

I know others have said wonderful things about their barbecue but it misses the mark for me. I had a half rack of ribs and they were dry and didn't come free from the bone very well.Their dry rub was good.Sauce run of the mill. Loved there coleslaw and baked beans.Tried a half dozen of the wings.Mine are better.I like... More

Never expected to find amazing BBQ this far north. Make sure you stop by early for the ribs or they might all be eaten (by me). The cornbread and honey butter is off the hook - literally one of the best foods on earth. This place may be off the beaten path, but it's worth the beautiful drive through PA... More

Ordered the pulled pork sandwich with fries and Cole slaw. Waited over 20 minutes for it, but it was so worth it. Great sandwich on a nice toasted bun with excellent fries. Added the Cole slaw to the top of the sandwich with some Carolina sauce from a squeeze bottle. Will absolutely be back if my travels take me to... More

As people have mentioned, it is out of the way but it has a nice charm about the place. Not sure what it was before it became a restaurant. I had the ribs and my friend had the pulled pork. Both tasted very good but the ribs were way too dry for my taste. They had a really good smoke... More

My family and I were looking for somewhere to eat in the Harrisburg area and came across reviews for Original BBQ. We were certainly not disappointed by the quality and quantity of food. The restaurant is in the middle of a residential neighborhood and not where you would expect good BBQ. The inside is very plain. You go to the... More
