Awesome
By far the best BBQ in the Raleigh area, North Carolina and maybe the world. This place is good. The food is awesome. I could live on Carolina BBQ. The banana pudding is perfect. Especially if you can get it while it is still warm. The vegetable list is wonderful. I can get collards. The hush puppies are great. Everything is just gre ... read more

All these one star reviews are hilarious. What's more hilarious is that this is the same place that has catered for events I've attended and everyone raved about it. No doubt the look of the establishment is shabby, but the food is not. I've been going to Carolina Barbecue for years and it is my favorite Barbecue joint in the Triangl ... read more

Sometimes catered food is not the best after a time from the original kitchen, but this was excellent. I REALLY enjoyed having the sauce on the side to tailor my BBQ to my level of saucy.

They have the best food. We had them cater our meet and greet for our family reunion, and everyone raved over their barbecue, chicken and even the potato salad and green beans. I always stop in when I'm in Garner.

True Southern Food
Barbecue, hushpuppies, fried chicken, green beans, coleslaw, boiled potatoes. Can't go wrong with putting anything into your mouth. All great, tasty and satisfying. Oh did I mention the banana pudding. WOW! All good......

For the best seafood always go to a BBQ place and Carolina BBQ has the best along with excellent slaw, corn sticks, and tea. Rodney is the most attentive and gracious server. My girlfriends loved the chicken pastry.

Thursday Quick Meal
Well, I have had their take out before but was totally surprized about how nice the restaurant is, and the food quality was like home cooked, I had the fried chicken with superb sweet potato fries and fried okra WOW, is all I got to say. Clean, reasonably priced $$ and good service, I will be back and recommend this establishment.

Great Carolina BBQ
First things first, this is your run of the mill American dive. It's a hole in the wall kind of place. But that doesn't stop the food from being delicious. Whether dining in or taking your meal to go, you will get a ton of food. Personally, I love to go and get the family style experience. They keep bringing food until you can barely ... read more

I thought the service was really good and I love the menu.  You get a full bar of delicious toppings and barbecue sauces.  The only two complaints was the gumbo was too salty and the onions for my salad were cut like an inch and a half thick I kid you not.  I definitely going again though.

Freshly cooked food
Friendly staff and freshly cooked food = everyone in our group was happy. We ordered take out to go. Brief wait in line to order. Food was cooked right in front of us. Can't ask for fresher cooked food. The only thing we didn't like was the iced tea as it was very strong. Otherwise, everything was excellent.

WONDERFUL down-home Southern food!
Arguably Carolina Barbecue serves the best Eastern-style NC pork barbecue we've had in the Triangle area!! What a surprise when our server, Rebecca, came over to the table with a basket of complimentary pork skins!!! Oh my, they were excellent, and I haven't eaten pork skins since I was a child growing up in the country! We had th ... read more

Family friendly
They offer a great family style type of dinner. You choose the items you want for your family style. As food gets low and your family hasn't had enough you can "refill" for lack of a better term; at no additional cost. And no you're not able to have Togo trays, thought I'd mention that since someone else asked.
