This small but delicious eatery is located right along the road on Route 151 south of Afton. They smoke the pork and chicken right there and you can smell it for blocks. The pulled pork sandwich is outstanding (it is great with cole slaw on top) and the chicken is very well seasoned and falls off the bone.

Paulie’s Pig Out is a great little place! My husband and I went there for the first time last week and I’m so glad we did. It’s mainly a take-out place, but there is one table on the inside and two picnic tables on the outside (although an umbrella or other means of shade would make them much more inviting).The... More

Loved Paulie's Pig Out! My husband had the pulled pork meal with baked beans and cole slaw. So good. My daughter had a half rack of ribs with dry rub. Delicious! I had the smoked chicken sandwich with homemade sides of potato salad and Mac and cheese. Awesome! Hope we get to go back again. Paulie greeted us as soon... More

Barbeque, like pizza, is ubiquitous, and what is "great" to one may easily be just OK to another. If you travel much -- like outside Nelson County, VA -- Paulie's is just NOt great. Sorry. Good, absolutely. The barbeque is sufficiently moist and the sauce tasty, though not especially distinctive. Fact is, their "signature sauce", if that is what it... More

If you are looking for elegant ambiance, extensive wine list, and soft music while you dine, then put the pedal to the metal and keep on down the road, 'cause you won't get it here. Although the view isn't bad if you sit outside (the only place there is to sit...) and enjoy the hills around the Rockfish Valley. And... More

Designed for take out they do have 1 table and 2 chairs and that was all we needed. We both got the BBQ platter which was a BBQ sandwich with a mound of pulled pork BBQ that was delicious. I got the baked beans which were great. The cole slaw was teriffic as well. This place is easy to miss... More

Frankly, we were on our way to another BBQ place in the Rockfish Valley outside of Afton, VA. We drove by Paulie's and decided to try it - we'd already been to the other place several times over the past few years. What a GREAT decision. The smell tickles your nose the moment you open your car door. Why? Their... More

Inspiring BBQ. Take out or eat at picnic table. Ribs nicely smoky. This same week I ate at Jakes in Nashville. This is better. Top notch.

Drive down Rockfish Valley Highway and the smell of Paulie's Pig Out should stop you. Great BBQ for takeout. No eat-in facilities (unless you count a small table where folk wait for their takeout. Large portions, great ribs and chicken (and gizzards too for the country purists).

Just try to drive by, I dare you. One whiff of how good the food smells and you will pull over. The mac and cheese is fabulous and whatever they put on the fries is fabulous. I am not a fan of chicken, but they do it right. The pork is equally fabulous. Look on the Dept. of Health website... More
