I've enjoyed Carolina Bar B Q for years. When we lived overseas it was one of the places we wanted to visit when back in town. I find the chopped tray or the sandwich provides plenty for a meal. Great service and food! We also like the BBQ salad.

Nice little place. Locals hangout. The barbecue is amazing and the best deep fried chicken wings around. Not expensive at all.

Friendly & terrific BBQ Carolina bbq As others have stated, it is worth it to venture a short distance off the highway. We stopped in for lunch & were treated to some terrific southern BBQ. I had the the pork tray, which was only $8 & came with a LOT of pork, 3 crispy, perfect hush puppies & cole slaw.... More

We went to this restaurant because of reviews. Not sure where they went. I had the rib plate. It was 4 small ribs for $14.99. The sides were just frozen fried stuff. The cole slaw was packaged also. The only good thing was the sweet tea. Not impressed.

Southern charm at its best! I ordered the BBQ plate, u get 2 sides, hush puppies or rolls; I got the hush puppies. Price for large 7 oz was $10.75, well worth the $$. The hush puppies r perfect!

Old fashioned local restaurant with great food and wonderful service. Traveling through NC demanded BBQ, this was a great choice. Good choices for lunch and the chocolate pie was to die for!

Large BBQ with white slaw. Pecan pie. Good portions fresh and tasty mild sweet BBQ sauce , pecan pie don't think it's homemade but still good flavor

OK, so taking pride as a BBQ connoisseur this is a fantastic place downtown Statesville. Not worthy of the traveler willing to jump off the Interstate and go a little out of the way however a nice value for the food. The slaw was excellent, not loaded with sugar or mayo. The wings are worth mentioning. Cooked to perfection. Crispy... More
