We do carry out at Carolina Kitchens and have always been fully satisfied. The serving size portions are large.

The first night we went we were told it was an hour wait. We should have taken a cue and stayed away. But we really wanted to try it so we went back again the next night. The server was pleasant but the food was really slow to get to the table. My short ribs were not cooked in the sauce but the sauce was just poured over and it was cold. The jerk chicken was OK. The collard greens and slaw were very good. Overall we will not go back and are still in search of good BBQ in the area.

My boyfriend and I recently ate at this restaurant. In the past, you could bring you food to the tables inside after you selected your food, from the cafeteria style line, and paid for it at the register. When we were getting ready to sit down, one of the waitress (who was a bit rude) told us we could not sit at the inside tables and they were only for patrons who were being served by a waitress. So, we ended up eating outside at one of the tables. On that particular day, I would have preferred not to eat outside. While eating, we noticed a couple of other people, who were in line with us, sit down on the inside and eat. We could see all of this because there is a large window, on that side of the restaurant, which we can clearly see who is sitting at those tables. If the restaurant has this policy now, then it should have a large size notice posted, at the entrance of the restaurant, indicating this. The food we ordered was good (fried fish, chicken and sides). The location is easy to get to and there is ample free parking in the lot. Prices are very reasonable. The line waiters were all friendly and so was the cashier. I am giving the rating of "average", for service, because of the rule of seating I mentioned. The seating issue is the only thing that irked us. Personally, this rule is ridiculous. If the space was a lot bigger and you could fairly accommodate both types of patrons (line orders and sit-down orders), then that would be different. Current seating, at this location, should be on a first-come basis no matter if you had a line order or want to be served at your table by a waiter/waitress.

Terrible service, long lines, bad customer service and the list of complaints are endless. If you have the opportunity, visit the Hyattsville location, it's a much better experience.

During a recent stay in Largo, we ate one dinner at the Carolina Kitchen. Definitely not a chain experience, which was what we wanted. The meatloaf was really good, with a nice tangy BBQ sauce. The potatoes were mashed with some skins in them that added a little extra flavor. Despite some other reviews, I thought the restaurant was clean and didn't see any bugs. Our server was quick, friendly, and very attentive to our experience.
