Went downhill

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... read 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.

We got the NC BBQ Combo and enjoyed it, good portion sizes and our sides of green beans and greens were a good complement. I was not crazy about the extra sauce choices, mostly too sweet. I like the vinegar base the best.

We have been to this location several times. You go to the counter and order and they call you when it is ready. The food is good but I prefer another BBQ place just down the road better. The dining room is alittle dark and not fancy but clean. The atmosphere reminds me of a fast food restaurant due to... More
