Since my initial visit to Carroll’s Sausage & Country Store in 2014, they’ve opened a second location in Sylvester, Georgia. I’ve also stopped in 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 approaching turnpike exit, you must stop. I’m not kidding, you really must!

Original Carroll’s Sausage & Country Store Post
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 (315 Whittle Drive) 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, and 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 and/or lunch and then sit down to enjoy it. We still had a few hours of the trip left, and I definitely want 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, which is 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.
