Since my initial visit to Carroll’s Sausage & Country Store (315 Whittle Cir, Ashburn) in 2014, they’ve opened a second location in Sylvester, Georgia. I’ve also stopped in at Carroll’s a handful of times for breakfast over the years.

It’s a great spot to pick up some snacks for the long road trip home to Miami. I can’t get enough of those bacon & sausage biscuits. They’re the perfect snack to tide me over, so I won’t overdo it as I’m prone to do on road trips.

Once you see you see the billboards announcing Carroll’s impending turnpike exit, you must stop. I’m not kidding; you really must!

First visit to Carroll’s Sausage & Country Store

March 30th, 2014 – It had only been a couple of hours since we left Atlanta, but we skipped breakfast and were now hungry. Nothing returns me to primitive behavior like starving and then seeing Carroll’s Sausage & Country Store over and over on billboards along I-75.

It was Saturday at 2 PM (they’re open Mon-Sat 7 AM-7 PM), so we were good. After a quick pit stop to refuel at a gas station, we head over to meat nirvana.

Imagine an amped-up Cracker Barrel and replace all the tchotchkes with meats, jellies, sauces, and you get the idea. I’ve never seen a butcher counter of this length before, and it’s packed with everything imaginable.

There’s also an area near the entrance where you can order Southern-style breakfast or lunch and then sit down to enjoy it. We still had a few hours of the trip left, and I wanted to avoid any stomach issues while traveling.

In other words, I stayed away from the gravy for my biscuits.

I ordered the large Spicy Country Sausage served on a giant Hot Dog Bun. I added some mustard, and it was good to go. Ed bought a bunch of uncooked meats to take home. Don’t worry; Carroll’s also sells thermal bags to keep your food at the right temp.

If you find yourself driving on I-75 (Exit 82) near Ashburn, Carroll’s Sausage & Country Store is a great stop to check out.
