“Must Try in Ashburn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

This little hole in the wall is a hidden gem in Ashburn. They not only catered my own graduation party but my mother's 40th birthday as well. Mac and cheese is my favorite and they always have fresh, succulent meat. Definitely make a stop here!

“Best value BBQ I've had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Focus on the ribs and pulled pork, chicken is good too. Family style plastic forks and plates. Don't let it fool you.

Loved it

“A hidden gem in ashburn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Looks like a little cabin you would see in the middle of the woods, but has decent BBQ inside. A little pricey I think but prob the bed BBQ in Ashburn. The ribs are ok and brisket is decent. I would just get the BBQ pulled pork sandwiches with a side of potato salad and baked beans. Their beans are actually pretty good. Enjoy.

“Authentic NC BBQ!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

This place is great! Real authentic NC BBQ! It's certainly nothing fancy, but it hits the spot when you need some good southern cooking!

“You Can't Beat The Price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Location is in the original Ashburn village. The building is next to the WO&D bike trail so it is a great stop when biking in the area. Plainly decorated, so don't expect much atmosphere but the food is great. Where can you get a pulled pork sandwich and two sides for 7.95? They also have ribs. Sometimes they have beef brisket, collard greens, or some other special for the day. The staff is friendly and the food is great. I would recommend stopping by Carolina Brothers if you are in the area and like barbeque.
