Very good Carolina Pit BBQ. The sides are include an excellent choice of baked beans, mac & cheese to name a few. Always fresh and tasteful. Recommends for a casual lunch by yourself or with friends and family.

It has become our tradition to pick up some pulled pork and brisket (with the sides, of course) and eat under the fireworks on the 4th of July. And don't forget to get extras for the 5th of July! It's so good, I just might sell the grill! Don't miss this.

Great BBQ! If you go on a Saturday, make sure you go in time to get their brisket. Delicious! Their pulled pork and ribs are great too.

Wife and I decided to try a new BBQ place about 15 miles from home at Ashburn, Virginia. We thought this entire area was a made-up town with suburban malls. Following the GPS we suddenly found ourselves back in time to the original old town Ashburn and there was Carolina Brothers BBQ in what must have been a 1930S (?) general store. The inside also surprised us....this is a real country BBQ joint! OK....so I got a half-rack of ribs and my wife a Texas style beef sandwich. Also some slaw and cornbread. Very good flavor all around....yes, Carolina like but sweeter and a bit richer than most Carolina BBQ. Ribs were moist and meaty, sandwich beef thick and tender. Cornbread to die for. OK so the slaw needs some work.......but all in all a great place with very local country (authentic) atmosphere.

Absolutely amazed, after 6 decades of eating farm-style eastern NC BBQ I was expecting disappointment for the NoVa area after all the big chains I have tried here. This is the real deal. Very mild flavor to appeal to all age groups but you can add the vinegar based sauce and assorted hot sauces to whatever level makes you happy!!!! True carolina style pulled then chopped (pork). Fully loaded bun with two heaping sides ($7.50), was more like family reunion than a restaurant, even had beef brisket, chicken, and hot dogs available. Homemade pies, banana pudding, and the like gave the whole experience a "down home, tobacco farm" warmth. Only thing I missed was southern style Sweet Tea. This is comfort food at the highest level I have seen in NoVA for the past 8 years. Will be here often.
