Delicious; so easy to over order

the best part of the meal was the rack of ribs! Delicious, fall off the bone goodness. we ordered beef and pork sandwiches too and tried all the sides. I would leave all the sides except the baked beans which were scrumptious and just order the meat next time. Worth trying for sure!

I suppose if you like Carolina then the bbq is good. But having been raised in Texas there is no comparison to great bbq. Decent price for the sandwich however.

Their beef and pork barbeques are the best in NOVA! Recommend purchasing their bottled sauce to take home as well. Great sides include the macaroni and cheese along with the baked beans. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy a super meal. Also great place to shop for t-shirts and other small gift items. The best BBQ this side of... More

We have at least one meal here whenever we visit the area. Sometimes eat in; sometimes take home. Always the tastiest food and the best service.

I love Carolina Brothers in Ashburn, VA! Not only do they serve GREAT food, but also have GREAT service! PLUS, after you get your fill, you can step out the door and hit the W&OD Trail to work off the calories!

This is by far the best BBQ I've had since leaving North Carolina. I urge you all to go there and eat-hurry. Have the pork BBQ, you will not be disappointed.

love the ribs - pulled pork and chicken good too - nothing awesome, but will satisfy your bbq craving. bbq is always too pricey for me for what it is, but this place isn't any pricier than other bbq places.

Really enjoy their BBQ sandwiches as a fan of Carolina Style BBQ. Sandwiches and sides are great. Also ordered a take out Party Pack (6-8 people). Included 3 types of BBQ meat for sandwiches but the very best were the baby back ribs.....cooked to perfection. Pack included bean, slaw, potato salad, bread and extra sauce. After 8 people filled-up there... More

Carolina Brothers is the best B.B.Q. in Ashburn. The pulled pork is seasoned just right! The sauces go from mild to spicy and the spicy is very spicy! We usually get a deal with pulled pork, chicken and brisket and they have tasty sides also. The building is very old and quaint and it sits right along the W&OD trail,... More
