Let’s start a conversation.
“ I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team for making some amazing barbecue!! I finally had the opportunity to stop by one of your locations (Ridgewood) last night to feed my barbecue fix, and it was definitely well worth it. Everything was smoked perfectly–and while I enjoyed your original sauce, the barbecue did more than enough to hold up on its own merits. Traveling frequently to places like Texas, Kansas City, etc.–I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy great barbecue and do consider myself a student of slow-smoking. Yours is certainly now among my favorite BBQ places.” – M. Belsito about Old Carolina
“ Simply amazing bbq. Your pulled pork is the best I’ve ever had…well maybe a tie with my own. But when I don’t feel like spending the hours to get great pulled pork, Old Carolina is my only choice. I recommended you to many of my friends and family and they are even more impressed/obsessed than I am, and that is a hard feat to do. The service at the Fairlawn location may even be better than the food. I used to go all the way up to Famous Dave’s for my bbq fix, but you guys are even better.” – T. Pope about Old Carolina
“ The wife and I stopped by the North Canton store today (for the first time), largely in part because of your billboard nearby advertising Cheerwine (LOVE Cheerwine!). We could not be happier about our decision to pop in for lunch. The meal was fantastic! I have not had a pulled pork sandwich that good since I was in Charlotte for the Memorial Day NASCAR race two years ago, and having the cole slaw on the sandwich is the ONLY way to have it! Why it took us so long to discover your restaurant is beyond me…I’m sure we will be back for more again. And again. And again! Also, the staff was extremely polite and also helpful in describing the menu and the story of your business to us first timers. BRAVO!” – R. Stefan about Old Carolina
