Carolina BBQ & Chicken
Ranked #2 of 9 Quick Bites in Emporia
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We didn't want fast food so lady at hotel recommended this restaurant. Easy to miss but we got there. Pay when you enter. Food was mostly good. Hubby's favorites were fried chicken and collards. Mine were pulled pork and rice. We both really liked the coleslaw. Banana pudding and chocolate cake were good. We didn't try the real Southern specialties. The lady clearing the tables was nice and attentive.

Just had the best Sunday dinner I've had in years. Flavors right out of my grandmothers kitchen - good food done right. Pot roast to die for, the best fried chicken in 20 years, greens and stewed tomatoes, and melt in your mouth pulled pork. Oh and wrap it up with real banana puddin'. Right off I95 its a "have to" stop. Pass by the fast food places and go to Carolina BBQ and Chicken.

AUCE bar-b-q place that has fried oysters and steamed shrimp as well as Bar-B-Q. Typical southern buffet restaurant that is a notch above others. Tried a cross section of offerings and all were good and everything seems to be homemade. A definite stop when heading down 95. Very reasonably priced...no alcohol.

Put it in the GPS and found nothing. Wish we would have found it, instead of having to go to the disappointment Cracker Barrel.

Stopped here on an overnight in Emporia and glad we did. First of all no one tells you but you pay when you walk in. It’s a buffet. I had fried trout which was outstanding. Delicious and not at all greasy. My husband loved the BBQ which was done right and no gristle. Try their Brunswick stew, collards, Lima beans and oysters. They also have large peel and eat shrimp. The salad bar looked fresh. Don’t listen to people (mostly from up north) displaying negative comments because they have no idea what good southern food should taste like. Try this place !
