Well, they advertise having the best BBQ around. I guess that depends on how you like your BBQ. I know its all a matter of taste. As is usual, they serve smoked meat with a good variety of sides. They have 3 different sauces; I went with the mustard base and I like it. The meat was a little tough,... More

My boyfriend got the 3 meat platter with chopped and sliced BBQ and beef brisket with fried squash and sweet potato fries. The squash was piping hot and the sweet potato fries were sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and were delicious. The hot sauce was the perfect compliment to the pork and beef and there was very little fat on any... More

We have been stopping here for twenty or so years 2-3 times a year. The Brunswick stew was best I've had and the fried okra was delicious as usual. My chuncks of BBQ seemed to be greasy and lacking in flavor. The wife's BBQ sandwich was also not the normal fare.

I'm in Spartanburg for the weekend with my family for the annual clogging competition. Tonight we wanted a pulled pork sandwich and found Bubba's and Carolina BBQ on Trip Advisor. Both got good ratings but Carolina BBQ won out because it was closer! We all ordered the same thing, a pulled pork sandwich platter with cole slaw, came with 2... More

I have lived down here in this area for over 30 years and have eaten a lot of BBQ. This place is definitely very close to the top of the heap! I have tried almost every place close to Gvl-Spbg. It's right off the highway, easy to get in and out of, great sides and other option other than BBQ... More

I was there for dinner yesterday evening. The staff is friendly and the restaurant looks very clean. The meal I have had was ok, but nothing special. Fries have been not very warm. The BBQ chicken sandwich was tasty but small for the price. The chicken was dry. The BBQ sauce itself was tasty. Let`s say the restaurant was ok,... More
