If you want authentic smoked BBQ this is the place for you! They offer ribs, pulled pork, brisket, hot links, and more and I liked that they offered combos and daily specials with prices ranging from $9 to $15 for an individual meal.

My husband got their chicken and ribs special for $12 that came with one side and I got the half rack of ribs that came with a side for $15. The rib meat was literally falling off the bone, and the flavor was smoked in which was perfect because you could add you own choice of BBQ sauce, our fav was the sweet. I’m happy to report that the chicken was also flavorful and moist and the sides were just as good as the main entree! The BBQ baked beans were sweet and had a little spice and the jalapeno cornbread was moist and crumbly. The portions were big too so ended taking home some chicken and ribs, so you really get quality and quantity for what you pay for!

We can’t wait to go back and try their pulled pork sandwich and hot links along with their other sides like fresh made smoked mac n cheese, potato salad, and coleslaw! The service was very welcoming and had that local homegrown feel. Loved it!

A group of 14 dined here on a Friday night and everybody was extremely happy.

Free parking can be found within Country Village. Major credit cards are accepted.

Reservations are accepted and it’s a good idea to provide David with a guesstimate of what meats will be ordered so that there isn’t a shortage.

Tabs are easily split since orders are placed and paid for at the counter.

Seating and decor is very laid back: utility style tables with plastic chairs outside under a tent in the front of the restaurant, homey mismatched tables inside (too hot for me inside) and cute little bistro tables on the back outside deck. Stemware is all plastic. Food is served on/in disposable dishware. There are ample moist towelettes on the tables to help with sticky fingers (BBQ and sticky fingers go hand in hand).

We were told that on Saturday nights live Blues is offered for ones entertainment pleasure. Love that!

Beer and wine is offered. Our table ordered a few pitcher’s of Men’s Room Ale by Elysian Brewing Company. Love local brew!

For my meal I ordered: Pulled Pork Sandwich & one free side (I chose the jalapeno cornbread) for $9. The sandwich is absolutely huge and piled high with tender pulled pork. There were a few different tasty BBQ sauce options on the table to dress our sandwiches with. The cornbread was also big, moist, and sweet with just the right amount of heat form the jalapenos.

I also ordered a couple of sides:
Baked Beans for $2 – about 1 1/2 cups of pure heaven, served steaming hot. Collard Greens for $2 – about 1 cup of tasty not overly salty greens – seasoned just right.
Smoked Mac-n-Cheese for $2 – about 1 cup. Since I’m not a macaroni fan I wasn’t surprised that I didn’t care for this macaroni too much. I wouldn’t order again, not that it was horrible, it’s just that I don’t care for macaroni and cheese.
Two Hot Links for $3 each. Had to order another link since the first one was so damn good.

Thank you David for your Southern hospitality. My group loved your establishment, food, drink and you’re friendly personality. Thank you for making us all feel at home.

See you in the future for some Blues!

Dave is great and his food shows his pride because each bite is better than the last!!!!! I am not a person to eat out, and this is as close to eating at home as it gets. Plus the ambiance is amazing if you’re an avid Seahawks fan, which I am!!! Thanks for your delicious food and your amazing hospitality! We have found our new favorite place!!!

My only gripe…I ate everyone elses leftovers including my own and got into some trouble for it!!!:)

Really delicious ribs. I ordered the 1/2 rack of ribs, excellent quality, great slow smoked, sauce on the side, pull off the bone but not too much fat. I added 2 sides- the potato salad and Cole slaw; both were great. Nice fresh slaw and the potato salad was sweet but with a nice vinegar acid perfect to balance the ribs.
The price was very good, i paid $20 including a tip

I don’t know about you but I loooove good BBQ!
There are so many things to love about Carolina BBQ.

1. The owner is so friendly and hilarious. He likes to give people a good ‘ribbing’ or just a chat.
2. The tables and chairs. Not a single one matches but somehow they all go together. It’s always so fun to go in and figure out which one suits you for the day.
3. The brisket
4. The brisket
5. The brisket!! I love their brisket. It’s moist and smokey! Drench it in their signature sauces and it’s like a little piece of heaven in your mouth.
6. The sides. My guy loves the smoked mac and cheese but I HAVE to have a side of coleslaw to go with my brisket. It’s cool and tangy and pairs perfectly with it.

Please try Carolina. You will LOVE this place as much as I do!

Needed something to bring to a potluck at work. Called them up and they cooked a whole 3 lb brisket no questions asked. The brisket was awesome and everyone loved it!

This is about as good as it gets! And about is authentic southern BBQ as well. We had the sample platter it’s enough to feed four people. They have jalapeño corn bread and collards and even sweet tea! We will be back! Check out my photos

Carolina Smoke recently delivered food for our team outing. David was great to work with and was more than happy to assist me with the last minute order. He was already at the activity location when I arrived and promptly helped me to set up the food. He was very friendly and a pleasure to work with! Plus, the food was tremendous! The entire team commented on how good the food was and several even asked where it came from. We had beef brisket, pulled pork, bean, cornbread, hot links and coleslaw.

Also, David remembered that I had asked for a detailed receipt. Our order was customized and not split out on the bill and I was worried that my T&E might get kicked back. He didn’t have a detailed receipt with him so I told him don’t worry about. However, the next day he sent me an email with the itemized detail. I was completely surprised that he had remembered! What service!

Overall, my experience with Carolina Smoke was above and beyond my expectations as far as service and food! I would highly recommend them for any of your corporate outings or parties! You won’t be disappointed!

I am going to post this on Yelp as well, but wanted to post it here. I am not a big BBQ fan, but my husband is. So when we stopped in on Friday evening for some dinner, I was skeptical. I came out a HUGE fan! I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was TO.DIE.FOR! Even my hard to please, finicky eater of a 6 year old daughter loved it! We WILL be coming back for more! So delicious!!!

This is one of my favorite stops for comfort food and just plain mouth-watering BBQ. Dave is very personable and makes every visit a “family” event. I can’t say enough good stuff about Carolina Smoke.

I have to tell you that this is some of the finest smoked bbq this side of the Mississippi. The staff are like family and super friendly. The portions are huge which make great leftovers. If you got the itch for some great tasting bbq and a nice glass of sweet tea then this is the spot.

If it gets better than this, I’m not sure where. Had the brisket, ribs, chicken, baked beans, cornbread, hot links and cole slaw. Brisket, ribs and baked beans were probably my favorites. The baked beans stood out because they weren’t too soft. The ribs came off the bone with just the right amount of pressure. Great flavors across the board. I wasn’t a huge fan of the hot links but thought everything else was A+. It’s tough to find better BBQ anywhere, let alone in Washington state, although the brisket sandwich at the Metropolitan Grill is as good as anywhere.
