For more than 30 years, chefs at Carolina Barbecue have curated a menu of chicken, pork, turkey, and beef, smoked for 16 hours over hickory chips and glazed with from-scratch barbecue sauces. Rib plates quake under the weight of juicy St. Louis–style pork ribs and an endless cluster of crispy golden hush puppies. Jaws open extra wide for smoked-turkey sandwiches, stacked high with succulent smoked turkey atop a bed of coleslaw and pickles. When diners face peril at the grips of hunger, free-range chicken dons a cape of tangy barbecue sauce and teams up with sides such as baked beans and fried squash to conquer appetites.
Carolina Barbecue’s owner Mike Hicks encourages his guests to indulge heartily on their Lexington-style ribs, chicken, and pulled pork, as he finds no face more beautiful than one slathered in barbecue sauce. To complement his ribs and barbecue plates, the menu offers a dozen southern sides such as barbecue slaw, mac ‘n’ cheese, and green beans. The signature sauce, whipped up by Mike’s team of pit masters, is known for its vinegar-base, hickory smokiness, and ability to attract friendly bears.
