Quick stop off for lunch if traveling down the bike trail between Reston and Purcellville. Located in the Village of Ashburn Carolina Bros serves up great southern style BBQ and all the fixins!

Honestly, the only reason this gets 2 stars is because of the service. The people working there are super nice. This bbq is SUPER dry. I ordered both the pork and beef, while my wife ordered the ribs. All of it dry. If I didn't...More
