Ok, that's true. Carolina has the best cue in the SC Upstate Area. That isn't really saying a lot, because Spartanburg isn't exactly a haven for barbecue. Fortunately, Carolina does a good job of making up for the lack. They have great barbecue, ribs, and chicken with some old fashioned sides. Of course, the sides are traditional Southern, a little...

We like this barbeque very much and I especially like their Brunswick Stew. They now have Sweet Potato Crunch on the menu and it is very, very good. The mac and cheese is homemade and worth trying as well as their banana pudding. Nothing fancy so you can just drop in as you are.

Well, they advertise having the best BBQ around. I guess that depends on how you like your BBQ. I know its all a matter of taste. As is usual, they serve smoked meat with a good variety of sides. They have 3 different sauces; I went with the mustard base and I like it. The meat was a little tough,... More

My boyfriend got the 3 meat platter with chopped and sliced BBQ and beef brisket with fried squash and sweet potato fries. The squash was piping hot and the sweet potato fries were sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and were delicious. The hot sauce was the perfect compliment to the pork and beef and there was very little fat on any... More

We have been stopping here for twenty or so years 2-3 times a year. The Brunswick stew was best I've had and the fried okra was delicious as usual. My chuncks of BBQ seemed to be greasy and lacking in flavor. The wife's BBQ sandwich was also not the normal fare.
