Want some excellent down home Carolina Smoked BBQ in the Seattle area? Then look no further, because you've found it! The pulled pork sandwich was scrumptious and it has great sides like potato salad to match! Hey, try the brisket too! Absolutely mouth-watering! When you get your belly full of that awesome bbq food, don't forget to stroll around all... More

Always love coming here. Their sandwiches are delicious. You can get the bbq sauce on the side if you have some diet restrictions. Not a lot of authentic bbq places offer that. The people are always friendly. Then stroll around the shops @ the village for a fun afternoon.

BBQ is a staple for me, so I'll admit to rating it hard...being from Ga. So as Carolina bbq goes it can only be so good--a rating of 4 out of 5 possible. I'd give it a 3. Babybacks were good. Sweet sauce is ok. Sweet tea is strong, but as much coffee as they drink up here it probably... More

Stopped and got a couple racks of Dave's ribs to bring home. Cooked perfectly, just a little char on the edges, meat falls off the rib and Dave's honey mustard sauce that I've grown to love. Had the ribs with Dave's home made beans and cornbread. A perfect dinner on the patio at home with a chilled beer.

We love the sandwiches at Carolina smoke. I love both the brisket and the pork. But what really keeps us coming back is the apple butter BBQ sauce. I'm pretty sure I'd eat a shoe if it had this sauce on it.

Don't bother. Dry meat, overcooked, horrible sauces. Wait staff acted like they were doing us a favor by letting us buy their food.

So if I were to be asked where is the best BBQ on the North end what would I answer? Carolina Smoke would have to be up for consideration. Is it great, no not really. Is it consistently good, yes it is. So you live north and you're hungry for BBQ? Carolina Smoke will fill the need but you may... More

Not only does it have great BBQ and all the fixings'. It has Southern "sweet tea." The 3 sauces are all hits. My favorite is the mustard BBQ sauce-don't let the name scare you. I never liked mustard BBQ sauce until I tasted David's. It is the greatest. And David-he's a great host. Excited about serving up his favorites!

Stopped into Carolina for a rack of ribs but ended up buying a mixed plate of pulled Pork, ribs and brisket. WOW! everything had a nice smoke to it and those little bits of char on the tips of brisket made my meal spectacular!
