This is a great little cafe

This is a great place. The food was delicious. We have eaten here quite a few times while visiting our family over the past fifteen years.

Nothing special. The BBQ was okay. I think this is a dry county, so no beer or wine which would have helped.

We had a party over the weekend and catered with Carolina Barbeque. We ordered Chopped BBQ Chicken, Cole Slaw and Hush puppies. Everyone liked the food and great reviews. Customer service was also great through out. Thank You and keep up the good work.

Just ate there for the first time and whenever I'm in or passing through Spartanburg again I'll definitely stop in. I had the smoked turkey platter and my wife had the chopped bbq (pork)platter, each with two sides. Everything was as good as I have ever had anywhere in the US. The sides (Brunswick stew, fries, fried squash and cole... More

I worked out of town and saw signs for this place off of the interstate. The BBQ was good with a little kick. It didn't need any sauce but I would have to say that I enjoyed the mild sauce more than the others but to be fair I don't really care for mustard base sauce. Hush puppies were awesome... More

Always good food. Have noticed that lately customer service has slacked off and the portion sizes have decreased as well. Overall, the food is good. Love the BBQ Slaw.

Service was horrible. They only had one waiter for dinner. It took us a group of 7 over an hour to get drinks and food. Constantly running out of drinks. We will not be back and would not recommend it to anyone

Always good to visit. Hate they closed the Westside location but understand the circumstances. Long drive for me but well worth it.

Great food and great service. Ordered the chopped bbq plate with fries and Brunswick stew,and I was not disappointed. The BBQ was flavorful and the ketchup sauce complimented well. Fun atmosphere and prompt, courteous service.

We ate here a few months ago and stopped back yesterday for our second visit. My wife got the chopped pork plate and I got the week brisket plate both of which were excellent. Our favorite side, by far, is the Brunswick Stew. I've been searching for a place with good Brunswick Stew and finally we've found one. We will... More
