Circle M's BBQ pork is moist, a little bit spicy, & absolutely awesome. Their slaw has a vinegar base that pairs beautifully with their pork. The baked beans have sausage, pineapple tidbits & lots of other good stuff in them. The ribs & chicken have a dry rub that is different than most others, but still very good. They are... More

Good food, good prices. Friendly people. Menu is a bit small and is recommended to call to separate the sampler plate....

I'm not a BBQ expert but have eaten it in many States and Circle M was as good as anything I have ever had (Carolinas, Tennessee, Texas, Kansas City). My wife and I went for the first time so it was suggested that we try the "combo plate" which was a perfect selection. Pulled pork, chicken, ribs, slaw and baked... More

This is our favorite BBQ anywhere. We've had great BBQ in NC, Texas and Mississippi; pork and beef; mustard, ketchup or vinegar. This is absolutely the best! The ribs are fantastic. I'm not crazy for the chicken because it still has the skin on it. Also, the BBQ goes great with the marinated slaw. Please give them a try. By... More

A little different compared to some of the buffet or sandwich/plate style of some other upstate barbecue restaurants. The pulled pork is the main attraction with a unique spicy blend to it. The sauce is even hotter. Also they have drumsticks that are popular with the kids.

Small place. Nice atmosphere. Very friendly service. Ribs are to die for. Chicken quite good. Pork a bit bland for my taste. Better love vinegar; it is the base in the one BBQ sauce offered and the slaw. The pork is also marinaded in a vinegar bbq sauce. Overall a very good meal for the price.

Their smoked chicken is tender and moist, the best I've ever had. The pulled pork doesn't need any sauce because it is already mixed in. You need to like vinegar to like their pulled pork. I love the vinegar slaw. The ribs are next on my list to try. I've been here several times and have never been disappointed. The... More

I love sampling ribs wherever I go so thought I'd stop in when passing down I-85. Very friendly people who took time to go over the menu with me and explained that the ribs are "true" ribs, i.e. spare ribs and not baby back ribs. Other TA reviews have described the ribs as having too much fat, and relative to... More

Staff was very helpful & friendly. Clean and inviting..... a big plus for me. Family owned & operated & you can tell they take great pride in their establishment. While ordering, we mentioned that we had never eaten there before. The cashier (who I believe is the owner) made sure our plates had samples of everything. Her husband is the... More

Wow! Would sum up their food. This barbecue is different from others. Their pulled pork has a vinegar sauce already mixed in (at least it tasted that way) and not too much smoke flavor. I normally am a saucy person that loves to add barbecue sauce to my pulled pork, but their meat does not need anything added. The chicken... More
