Carolina Barbecue & More: Spartanburg’s Favorite BBQ Since 1980

People from all over visit Carolina Barbecue & More to relish in our finger-lickin’ Lexington-style juicy pork barbecue, ribs, chicken, turkey, and beef brisket.

We hickory-smoke our barbecue for 14-16 hours. Then we use our special dip, resulting in tender, juicy barbecue with a mouth-watering aroma.

We’ve been in business since 1980. Our Beef Brisket is the “Best Anywhere” and we’ve been voted “Best BBQ in The Upstate of SC.”

Come and relax in our down-to-earth atmosphere while “pigging out” Southern-style. The best anywhere for over 30 years!

While we add new dishes frequently, we still serve the famous, standard recipes as we did over 30 years ago.

At Carolina Barbecue & More, our food is delicious, our service fast (perfect for that short lunch break), and our prices are very reasonable too!

While we serve three standard BBQ sauces, Vinegar-Pepper, Mustard, and Heavy Tomato, occasionally we test new sauces.

Voted the “Best BBQ Joint in SC”  by Southern Living Magazine.

What Folks are Saying about Carolina Barbecue:

Google Review

Local Guide Eric Tyler Durden is a longtime customer and shared his experience coming to Carolina Barbecue & More in a 5-star Google Review:

We would pull off here on the way to Belmont and Charlotte when I was younger. It is now a stop for me and my kids.

Always worth the stop to and from Atlanta.

The quality has not changed a bit nor has the helpfulness of their staff. So nice that some things don’t change after the 15+ years we have been coming here…

Yelp Review

Over on Yelp, Spartanburg local Richard L had a lot to say about his visit to Carolina Barbecue & More:

This has got to be one of the best BBQ places in SC.  

We chose to dine in on Memorial Day.  The restaurant is small but comfortable and clean.  

Counter and wait staff are friendly and courteous.  Atmosphere casual, perfect for families.  

We went with the Ribs and Brisket. The owners offered us a free sample of their new Broasted Chicken.  

The Rib meat fell off the bone and melted in your mouth.  If you are not a fan of dry rub, then Carolina Barbecue & More is your place.

The Brisket was also perfect, thick yet tender.  The Broasted Chicken was crispy on the outside, yet moist on the inside.  

Our sides included Mac & Cheese, BBQ Beans, Banana Pudding, Slaw, Brunswick Stew, and Hush Puppies of course.  We ordered extra sides because we couldn’t make up our minds.  

I’m glad we did.  None of the sides come out of a can.  

The beans didn’t have that typical dark brown mahogany sugar sauce other places have, but the flavor is 10x better.  

That is how you know Carolina Barbecue & More is a good place.  Every meat and side has its own unique flavor – unlike other restaurants where everything is cooked in the same oven.  

We love Carolina BBQ. See for yourself and then you will use them for catering as we have.
