Just plain good BBQ in an eclectic sitdown area or take it home. The sides are nothing to rave about but the Chicken BBQ is probably one of my favorites anywhere. It's always a favorite when hosting dinner for out-of-town guests.

Good quality BBQ, great price. Recommend take out and catering. Beans are awesome! The restaurant does have some indoor seating though.

Learned about this place while visiting a sick friend nearby. Apparently it has been around for a long time but only known to locals. Having grown up in Carolina, I am rather tough critic for Barbeque. They offer some really good pulled pork and even tell you where the pig came from. Sides were good and generous. Prices for our...

Best BBQ in Loudoun County! Tasty sides of Mac and Cheese and Baked Beans you can't stop eating. Fresh Desserts too. Don't forget to pick up some to take home for another meal and family meals are generous portions reasonably priced.

This wasn't our best experience with BBQ since being in VA. The employees were nice, but I wasn't jumping up and down about the food. The price was too high for what it is - almost average.

This is our fav bbq place. We moved west a year ago and were back for a family birthday party in Bethany Beach DE. Decided to bring dinner to the beach for 13 people and ordered up a selection of ribs, pulled pork and chicken along with their sides of coleslaw, Mac n cheese, potato salad and baked beans. YUM....

I had Carolina Brothers cater an event for my work place. I needed a midnight delivery for our night shifts lunch. Carolina Brothers offered to do a midnight delivery. The food was hot and fresh. Definitely above and beyond what was expected! Food was delicious and service was superb! No doubt we will be using them for our next event!... More

The BBQ was really yummy, juicy and flavorful, we will definitely be back for the BBQ. The sides are just meh, which was a huge disappointment. So now we pick up the meat to go and make our own sides!
