I often travel between Washington, D.C. and Upstate NY and make it a point to stop at Freeman's BBQ. It's a quaint BBQ joint in the Mt. Holly Springs area as you approach Carlisle. It isn't anything fancy, but the atmosphere is inviting and the food is outstanding. There are a number of great choices ranging from chicken to ribs to burnt ends, all of which are very good. There are a number of appetizing sides as well, and the lemonade tastes excellent, as it is fresh, hand squeezed. Overall, Freeman's is an excellent BBQ destination - also a nice spot to have a good meal after a day spent at a car show at the Carlisle Fairgrounds!

Excellent food - have tried both ribs and chicken, loved them both - their red-skinned potatoes and homemade coleslaw are excellent -- very accommodating and friendly. We sat out front & enjoyed watching the traffic go by but you can also sit further back in the meadow under the trees and by the stream! Also, doggy/pet friendly!!

Great place to eat. Good quality food and ingredients purchased locally when possible. My favorites are the ribs, chicken, pulled pork, and the best cole slaw I’ve ever eaten. One of the reviewers mentioned having to sit along a busy road to eat. That is an option but there are also shaded picnic tables behind the food stand where you are in a grassy area away from the road.

Dog friendly (with a separate area with water for your dog and a little vending machine with dog treats). A nice place to have a relaxing good meal or pick up some food to take home.

Don't know who wrote the negative reviews but it is obvious they were never there. No mention of Creekside dining Are or pet friendly area. BBQ was excellent, staff accommodating and overall a great experience. Perhaps the competitors are the review writers?
