Thursday, June 12 - The man lied about what he served me. I repeatedly said no mac&cheese. Before I paid him I asked him again. But he was slick and spread the little meat over the noodles. My co-worker and I took a cab from 950 F Street, N.W. When I arrived back to the office they had filled my container with a lot of noodles with barbecue sauce and only 2 fork bits of meat that was so dryed out I could not distinquish what I was eating. The noodles were burned black! on the underside and the bean were terrible! I wasted my lunch hours in a taxi, I tossed my money down the sewage drain and I was left hungry until getting home to fix a healthy dinner. Terrible what the employee did to me and my co-worker who ordered the same thing and received the same. This experience will probably end my eating at a food truck.


Sandwich good as usual and a very pleasant lady serving the food; please send her over to Metro Center more often.

What Did You Order?: Smoked Chicken (w/o bun) combo w/loaded smoked beans • 
Is This One Of Your Favorite Trucks?: First Time • 
How Much Did It Cost?: $10 

This truck is not one of the regulars here at my location, so I decided to try it even though one of my favorites was here today.

Wow!

The sauces are incredible, and the portions are large. The smoked chicken was tender and not too salty. The slaw was too vinegar-y for me, but it was still a fun addition. The loaded smoked beans were delicious and just the right size for a side. But the number one BEST thing about this truck are the sauces! I ordered my chicken with spicy sauce and with double-extra memphis sauce. The spicy sauce was actually spicy, unlike most other food trucks where "spicy" is still super weak. The memphis sauce is so incredibly delicious, which made me involuntarily smile non-stop, and the spicy sauce gives a wonderfully nice, dull burn! (I read a review saying the portions were skimpy, but today I watched them pile it up high on all the orders before mine and then on mine as well!)

Is This One Of Your Favorite Trucks?: Hell Yea •

I have been eating from this truck for well over a year now and while today’s sandwich (Brisket) was pretty darn good, as usual. The new man working the tuck today at metro center was not constructing sandwiches that are up to the generous Carnivore standards that I have grown to love and respect oh these many months. In the future please let new staffers know that it’s better to run out of a particular product making regular customers happy ( Folks can always opt for another choice as I have had to do many times in the past) than to try and parse out a particular product thus trying to serve more customers and leaving everybody disappointed.


Rude, slow service. Ran completely out of ALL food at 1245, but didn't say anything to the rest of the people in the line, standing in the cold.T

This is usually a good truck. Not today or for a while.


This is only the second food truck I have gone to and I'm glad I tried it out. The meat was cooked perfectly and both meats tasted awesome by themselv

This is only the second food truck I have gone to and I'm glad I tried it out. The meat was cooked perfectly and both meats tasted awesome by themselves. The sauce was what I expect from a BBQ sauce.

Best Mexican Burritos and Tortas almost convinced me never to try another food truck.

Pork was how it should taste. Not to porky or not too salty. Just right. Baked bean were the BOMB with chucks and pieces of brisket and pulled pork. Had the memphis suace and it was delicious but the only downfall was the old coleslaw. I went at the end of lunch so I guess I got it old.

service was great, and the taste of the meat was good but really dissappointed from 1st time i ate from them approximately 2-3 months ago. 1/3 of the meat was all fat, the portion of meat was much smaller and not worth 10., and the bun was hard. i am bummed.

Is This One Of Your Favorite Trucks?: It is my favorite truck! • 
How Much Did It Cost?: Who cares 

This is the most wonderful BBQ I have ever had! The staff is friendly and servings are perfect. I get the chicken and pork combo each time with the hot & spicey sauce. The cole slaw can sometimes be a litle bland but dang this stuff is goooood!!!!! The only downside is they don't come around often enough.

Carnivore BBQ is a food truck serving pulled pork and beef brisket. The owner got his start with a cart called Old Smokey (pictured below + more details on the Carnivore BBQ website). The 1988 Chevy C20 pickup truck started serving under the radar on March 2, 2011, but was added to Food Truck Fiesta on March 8, 2011.  They launched a full-fledged food truck in the Dec 2011 time frame (pictured below).  On March 2, 2012, they launched their 3rd truck, but only intend to have 2 trucks out serving on any given day.  On Oct 15, 2012, a 4th truck was launched (their 3rd full-fledged food truck).

In early March 2013, Carnivore BBQ open a shop in Hollins Market in Baltimore, MD.
