Note: Carolina Barbecue Shack sits back off the road literally in the delivery area back behind the street-front shops. Also, it’s a good idea to call ahead as they are open seasonally.

Back in 2004 retired educators Furman and Carol Mauldin decided to follow their passion for cooking delicious barbecue and opened a humble take-out spot in their hometown of Greenwood, South Carolina.  

Open just three days a week, and located off the beaten path, the “Shack” quickly became THE place to get pulled pork, ribs, chicken, and hash.

All these years later, the Shack has grown by leaps and bounds! 

Still located off the beaten path (behind the Market Place Shopping Center), the Shack now offers an air-conditioned dining room, an expanded menu, and full-service catering.

What’s our secret? 

All of our meat is smoked or grilled right here in our on-site barbecue pit, and our sides are made in-house daily.  We even offer four different homemade sauces to satisfy any level of heat you’d like! 

And at the Shack, we only use the best ingredients around!

None of this would be possible without our loyal customers!  We appreciate your business and look forward to seeing you at the Shack!

What Folks are Saying

Google Review

Among the many Google Reviews, Local Guide Roy W Richardson points you in the right direction:

If you are looking for great BBQ, then you need to find the Carolina Barbecue Shack. It is hidden behind the University Grill. Take the road beside M&M Tire and find the sign. Take a right and drive on back to the building.

They offer pulled pork, hash, beef brisket, and smoked turkey. You will want to add a baked Potato and barbecue beans to that plate with a roll. They have a Shack Sauce, which is a ranch/sour cream based sauce with a hint of garlic that is so good you could probably use it to eat a rock. It tastes great on everything.

You will be hard pressed to decide which BBQ sauce to go with, their signature Carolina Barbecue Shack Barbecue sauce or their Carolina Gold sauce, which is a mustard based sauce. They have lots of sides to choose from but the baked potato with the Shack Sauce and barbecue beans are my favorite. Don’t want to cook supper, go by and get a Family pack.

When they first opened there were picnic tables outside. Then they added an awning for the tables to be under. Over the last couple of years they built a nice building with beautiful tables, air conditioning, and a big screen TV.

Yelp Review

Over on Yelp, Greenwood local Stephen C has visited Carolina Barbecue Shack often and keeps coming back:

Best bbq in town. Great people behind the counter as well. Absolutely delicious. Have been here many times and it’s pretty consistent with the quality of meal. Prices are fair for what you are eating, and the sitting area is nice and quiet. I’d recommend to anyone.
