Carlile’s Barbeque

The chefs at Carlile’s Barbeque slow cook cuts of meat using the same recipes and the original barbecue pit made famous by brothers Herman and Warren Carlisle, who founded the restaurant in 1945, following their return from World War II. Despite several changes in ownership, the tried-and-true restaurant––named after the misspelling of Herman’s last name upon his entrance into the armed forces––has sustained its popularity for more than half a century, thanks to the addictive nature of its signature vinegar-based barbecue sauce, which graces everything from barbecue chicken salads to slow-roasted slices of tender pork butt and the door handles of every car in the parking lot. Full-meal platters showcase catfish, honey-mustard chicken, and slabs of ribs topped in their own sweet, ketchup-based sauce alongside a slew of hearty, house-made sides ranging from creamy mac ‘n’ cheese to crispy fried okra. Meals end on a sweet note, courtesy of the shop’s specialty “Momma’s recipe” banana pudding; lemon, chocolate, coconut, or pecan pies; or slabs of peach cobbler.

Customer Reviews

Love this place.

Outside sliced pork was good. Slaw was very good. The tea was very good as it actually tasted like tea, not weak at all.
