Well worth the drive

Others have covered the limitations of the premises but this place is all about the food. We've stopped in a few times traveling between Waynesboro and NC and always left thinking this is worth a destination drive. They serve some of the best BBQ ever.

Worst customer service experience I have ever had. We are locals who used to frequent Paulie's, but we will not be back again. Realized it was getting late on a Sunday, so we called just to make sure we would make it before their closing time. Arrived ten minutes before closing just hoping to grab a quick scoop of BBQ...

This is the best BBQ I've had in a while. Very authentic and friendly vibe! The pulled pork is to die for!

This place looks like a little dive but the smell of fresh barbecue is what lured me in. I went with a pulled pork sandwich and some mac and cheese and it was DELICIOUS. Also, try the lemon bars they were fantastic!

Kind country service. Great bbq ribs, and chicken. Sauce a little heavy on the vinegar but over I keep going back.

Stop by Paulie's every few months for BBQ. Asked about why it was spicy a few visits back. They mentioned they had put some hot BBQ sauce in that time. They gave us some spicy sauce to add to our sandwiches and WOW! Ask for some spicy sauce if you like a little kick in your BBQ. Not much room... More

Don't be fooled by the "wayside" look to this little eatery...they know their BBQ. I am a BBQ snob and have eaten it all over the mid-atlantic as well as the south. Paulie's is as good as it gets. Do yourself a favor and stop in the next time you are driving on Rt. 151.

We stopped here after vodka tasting and cider tasting. Hungry, we all ordered a BBQ sandwich. They have two large bbq ovens outside and everything smells do good. There is no place to sit and eat inside but there are a couple of picnic tables outside and we got to enjoy a 1950's Bellair car in mint condition while sitting... More

Went here based on other reviews. Food was really good, but seems pricey considering it's actually just a carry-out place with nowhere to sit down. I'll go back when in the Afton area but wouldn't make a special trip.

We stopped here after a great reference from a staff member at Veritas Vineyard & Winery. Unfortunately, at about one in the afternoon, they were out of barbecue; so, we went for second choices and I found them to be lackluster - average mac and cheese, average slaw and greasy, though well cooked chicken. On the other hand, the portions... More
