When John started Carter’s Bar-B-Que take-out nine years ago in a trailer on South Florida Avenue in Lakeland, he stuck to two things: ribs and chicken. Once the business became a success, he moved into a red, concrete-block house along State Road 60 in Mulberry and turned the carport into a drive-through.

“ Love this little place! Great food, Love the carolina mustard bbq sauce on this great pulled pork sandwich. This is the best BBQ place I have been to in Florida. The staff is very friendly and got my food fast. They do accept debit cards. Make sure to grab a bottle of their BBQ sauce to take home! ”
“ My husband and I stumbled on this amazing bbq place back in 2006 or 2007. Best bbq we have ever had. We eat here now every time we are in town. Staff isn't friendly but we don't care, we are there for the food! If you are looking for a posh, hip place don't come here. It's all about soul food and bbq. ”
“ Had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant earlier this week while on vacation. My sister recommended. I'll admit I had a problem with what I wanted to order. So much on the menu. But what I did order, the bbq pork sandwich, fries, baked beans and a lemonade, was delicious. And you get more for the money. Also had pleasing conversation. Worth another trip before I leave. I want to try those pork chop nuggets and fried okra. ”
“ Wow. What a find. In the back to Sarasota on the back roads from Lego Land. Amazing BBQ. Had both a pork and a beef chopped sandwich. The sauce was amazing. Also the corn fritters were the best I've ever had. Great to find it - and hope others do to. ”
