Stopped in for lunch after we saw the ad for Carl's on the score card at Montgomery Bell State Park golf course. The BEST pork sandwich ever. Cozy spot, friendly wait staff. HIGHLY recommended!

The ribs were fall-off-the-bone delicious. The Barbecue was good, but I would go here for the ribs. We got our order to go and it was Sunday, so I advise that if you are taking your food to go, you call ahead. The wait was...More
