A venerable institution is Carter's, offering a wide variety of smoked meats with a considerable eat-in space. Lunch starts around noon, and if your visit takes you closer to dinnertime, they may be out of some meats, like any great barbecue place. The line snakes around the inside, but the staff does its best to keep moving. While the sides... More

I loved this place. The brisket is tender with good flavor, pork loin was moist, sausage had a nice kick, and best of all the chopped brisket is actual good parts of the brisket chopped when ordered not the leftover pieces like in some places. The sauce is good to strong flavor with out over powering the meat.

My brother and I tour Texas on motorcycles and make it a point to eat BBQ everywhere we go. Recent trip included Longview so we hit Carter's for a meal. We both ordered sliced beef sandwiches to go. Large pile of sliced brisket on your choice of white or wheat sandwich bread. Onions and pickles included along with some unimpressive... More

I was new to Longview 2 years ago... and looking for a great BBQ place. I continued to ask friends, and the same name that came up was Carter's. Finally tried it over a year ago, and it definitely lives up to it's reputation. I've had the ribs (very good), chopped beef sandwich (very good), sliced beef sandwich (very good).... More

Carters has a flavorful barbecue and cuts a generous serving for your sandwich. The bun is crisp and the sauce is pretty good. Too much vinegar for me but good enough. It is worth the drive as the meat is more moist than the city places. I recommend it.
