“Great home cooked barbecue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013 via mobile

This is not a dine-in style restaurant, but you won't get better barbecue! The mustard-based sauce is excellent, the owner is a hoot, and the service is quick. There are several picnic tables for outside dining. The only foods I didn't care for were the vegetables and rice. They had too much seasoning for my taste. I would definitely eat here again though!

“Family style, great BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013

We found out about this place through a piece in the local news and decided to give it a try ... never to regret it. The location is a modest drive through and walk up window only with a picnic table outside so their business is clearly geared towards carry out. This is a family business, ran by the family, they care about their food and their clientele. Their bbq is outstanding, their sauce is unique and delicious both in hot and mild. I tried stewed oxtails and rice there for the first time and got hooked. Their pulled pork sandwich is plentiful and very tasty plenty of with moist meat, the ribs are fall off the bone and so is the chicken. You can't go wrong with Carter's and they cater too ...
