The pulled pork was very moist and tender with great flavor. Good luck on picking a favorite sauce, they are all good! The Ribs were awesome. Could not have been any better.

Truly some of the worst food we've ever had. Husband and I both had the same thing -- pulled pork barbecue sandwich, green beans, and garlic mashed potatoes. To start with, everything -- in both meals -- was not even warm enough to call "lukewarm." The barbecue was served on a plain boring white -- bleached flour -- hamburger bun -- not even toasted - and stale at that. The green beans were tasteless. The mashed potatoes were average -- but stiff and cold. The best thing we had was the iced tea and the barbecue sauce even though none of them was great. The young lady who took our order was very helpful and sweet. The food came out very quickly, but would rather have waited a few minutes for some hot food. Extremely disappointed -- and wishing we hadn't wasted $26! Never again!

This was our first trip to this restaurant. We ordered light meals of pulled chicken sandwiches and shared sides of bbq beans, garlic mashed potatoes and cornbread. We actually enjoyed the sides more than the sandwiches, and decided we would try the pork or beef on our next trip, as well as experiment more with the various sauces. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and attentive, making our first visit a pleasant one.

We noted that the restaurant had a long shelf table with barstools along the window with outlets every foot or so for those wishing to work on their computers or charge their electrons during lunch - a nice touch.

Our first visit to the Old Carolina BBQ company was a good one.

The menu included Pulled Pork, Chicken, ribs, wings, and hot dogs.

We had the Pulled Pork, Chicken Sliders, Wings, and Hot Dogs. They also offered a selection of tap beers.

When they brought our food out, we found that we had not read the description of the hot dogs for our son and they had beans and cole slaw on them. The manager very quickly got us some plain dogs for him (excellent service!). We tried the dogs with beans and slaw and found them delicious.

The pulled pork was quite good, made better with some vinegar sauce and slaw on top. The chicken sliders had a good flavor. The wings and fries were OK.

Nice casual place to enjoy some quick BBQ with great service.

I got the brisket and chicken. The brisket had a good smoke ring however was cold. It's pretty sad when the chicken is better then the brisket. The bbq sauce options were not good. I tried everything to get a simple bbq sauce to match the food. The corn bread was warm and good. The mac and cheese was average as it seemed hard almost like it was reheated from a bag. The place was clean though and wasn't too pack at dinner and now I know why. I recommend going elsewhere for bbq. I travel a lot and love trying bbq this was just a disappointment
