Every joint, from the best to the worst, seems to have people who think the food served there is the very best. Even bad barbecue is somebody's favorite.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Carters Station


UPDATE: <<Charles Carter passed away in 2011, and Carter's Station has closed it's doors>>

Roadhouse that happens to serve some food (including a bit of bbq).  I can recommend the "Texas Toothpicks" sausage sandwich... and help yourself to some pinto beans from the crock pot.

MAIN FARE:Carter Station Sausage

  • Only BBQ options are chopped sandwich or sausage sandwich, so we order both
  • Chopped Brisket - Is tough.  Microwave reheat didn't help.
  • Sausage - Salty, with a nice spice on this finish.  Yummy.  This stuff was even good after being microwaved!


  • Beans - Soft pintos with a little spice on finish.  Served in a crock pot... help yourself.
  • Texas Toothpicks - Fried strips of jalapeno and onions.  Probably a frozen product, but hot & crips and very good.
  • Sauce - From a bottle?

ATMOSPHERE:Carter Station Pit

  • "Joint" drive-up appeal
  • Parking lot is covered with bottle caps
  • Roadhouse - Reminds me of a cross between Country Tavern and Big Smith's.
  • Bar first; food a distant second
  • BBQ meats are micro-warmed 
  • Would like to visit on Fri or Sat night!
