Virginia style barbecue

I have not eaten here in quite some time, so I stopped for lunch on my way home from a geocaching trip. I ordered the Virginia barbecue combo meal, which is a sandwich with two sides and a bit of cole slaw. The bun came piled high with a pulled pork que in a reddish sauce, sort of a clone... read more

Ate at Virginia BBQ in Carrollton, Va. this evening at 7:30 PM. They close at 8:00 PM. When we walked in the chairs had already been put up on all of the tables. Thought they were closed. When we found out they weren't, we got a booth and we ordered. I ordered BBQ chicken platter and my wife ordered a... More

Good food, good service, good prices. The fried corn bread is the best dessert on the menu. Do yourself a favor and visit this place while in the area.

We used to love eating a Virginia BBQ. Recently, the management changed and they changed the recipes. They add so much salt to their collards that it burns and makes my tongue swell up. We also used to be able to trade in the buns for a another side (for the family meal to go) but they won't let us... More

The virginia barbecue is a neat place for locals and ball teams to eat. They do it quite often because the food is good and the staff is the friendliest you'll fine. It's not the great barby place you've been searching for but they prepare food well. Previous reviewers have noted the various styles offered. The place is always clean... More

We live here in Suffolk, Virginia. We were sad because the place just outside of Charlottesville, Virginia with "the best barbeque we had ever had" was closing down. No more long trips to pack up a cooler and "bring home the pig" . So, one day when we were out running errands, we stopped by the Virginia Barbeque at Carrollton... More

It takes nerve to sell Carolina, Virginia, Texas, and Memphis style BBQ in one small restaurant, but this place, and the others in the small chain do so. Maybe not the best BBQ in the world, but quite good. I've eaten here several times and keep returning and I like my Q. I was happy to see they were preparing... More

I have had much better but for BBQ around this area it is just average. The woman behind the counter was very nice so that is a plus.
