So friendly and the food is outstanding. The very best part is that oh so delicious raspberry barbeque sauce. Pour or dip that delicious pork and it melts in your mouth. So happy you are in Mt. Airy.

So I’m your typical Type A, stressed out bride who had to change her decisions like 70 times during the course of the wedding planning because suddenly I had double the original number of guests, and suddenly we had a keg when we didn’t expect one and suddenly I had gluten free requirements, etc etc. Did CarterQue or Colleen stress? No way. They were cool, calm, and professional the entire time. They answered my emails immediately, answered my ph…

Love, Love, Love this place. Went for the first time and had the crab dip with old bay covered tostitos for app, 2 meat dinner with brisket and pulled pork, the best sauce, baked beans, macaroni and cheese and cornbread..AND to top it off, the best bloody mary with their own bbq rub on the rim of the glass, real bacon bits on top and can’t wait to come back again.

Invited for lunch by the in-laws and thinking we’ll see. Not having the best of luck at bbq places lately and being a little picky. I was pleasantly surprised! Great bbq! Tried the brisket, pit ham, pit beef and turkey – all great. Good smoke flavor, tender and well cooked. Now the sauces are outstanding, not the sweet we get in Iowa. Great taste and not overpowering. Make sure to try the blackberry sauce, mmmm good.

If you’re looking for the absolute best BBQ sauce on the market to impress your friends and family, then go no further. You’ve found it! A long time ago we found CarterQue’s when we lived in Maryland. We would eat there on a regular basis and purchase their BBQ Sauce. Six years ago we moved away to NJ and we have kept ordering this AMAZING BBQ sauce several times a year (I just bought 8 bottles for winter use!)
