“Ok low key BBQ”
Review of Carolina Brothers

Carolina Brothers
Ranked #5 of 229 Restaurants in Ashburn
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 December 2017

The great advantage of Carolina Bros is that they're right on the W&OD trail, so you can bike the calories off...

However, for a place associating themselves with real North Carolina BBQ, do not expect NC quality. But they score pretty decent on the not-in-NC scale of BBQ.
Good mac-and-cheese. We were also surprised that they did not have a mixed plate.

We were disappointed that they served their food in styrofoam. Come on, in NoVa with a large biking clientele, they should know better.

All in all they're an excellent reward for a long bike ride.

You'll smell the aroma long before you hit this nice eatery next to the Washington and Old Dominion Trail. At the intersection of the WODT and Ashburn Road, it is a favorite spot of all who travel on the W&ODT ... bikers, runners, walkers, etc all stop for their favorite beverage or a taste of yummy Carolina BBQ. Tables inside or use the picnic tables out front!

It’s been a really long time since I’ve been here. I came across it again here in TA and just had to say I would NEVER recommend anyone eat here. Nothing my family had tasted good and I don’t believe it should be called bbq - no matter what part of the country you’re from. My whole family agreed - this place failed on taste, texture, and smell. Not a representation of bbq at all.

What’s nice about this place is that they tell you where they sourced the pork from. The have Great ribs. (I always ask for extra sauce.) A pork dinner includes two sides. The Sides are ok. You can eat in or take out. It only takes a few minutes to prepare your order.
