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

This is a place we would normally have driven right past. Are we happy that our hotel clerk directed us to try it. The food was plentiful and delicious and the waitress was delightful. A real winner!

Place & location is nothing special. However, food is very good. Service is fast and friendly. Price/quality relationship is very good. All in all a highly recomendable place if you are looking for a small, local, family restaurant.

Great barbecue, heck great food! I just picked up an order for a group of us working together. We are all from out of town (Ohio, Georgia, Colorado...). Everyone loved the pork and the homemade banana pudding. We tried both types of slaw and they were awesome as well! Another place to add to your visit when you are in... More

This place is a diner type of facility. Not fancy dress - come as you are. The staff is quick and friendly. Prices and food were delicious. I got the BBQ chicken salad with hush puppies and fried okra. All were good. Come hungry- the portions are big. If you like meat - this is the place.

We have been coming to this location (and the closed location on the South side of town) for twenty years. The waitress staff is still super but the food is not the quality of the past, The BBQ was not fresh and very dry. The slaw seemed to be not much more than chopped cabbage, The owner was working the... More

This was a good lunch, but not a great lunch. The service was great. Food was average. The BBQ slaw was a little dry and bland, the BBQ baked beans had a different taste, almost had a cinnamon flavor, not what I expected; no BBQ flavor. The BBQ was good but not great, clean, no fat, which I like, with... More

In the area for a wedding and thought we would get some authentic Barbecue. Great staff very friendly. Food was cooked just right and was served quickly. I have eaten a lot of barbecue and would put theirs in the top 10%. We had ribs and chicken, Cole slaw, hush puppies, onion rings, Mac and cheese and green beans. We... More
