BEST BAR B QUE IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA

We have been in the area for about 7 yrs and by far this is the best bbq in the area!!! Try the pulled pork sandwich and top it off with the fresh cole slaw. The Collard Greens are out of this world and the Potato Salad is well seasoned and remains me of a family favorite recipe. The Beef... read more

Small tiny little place and seems to stay busy.The Beef Brisket is an excellent choice here, the chicken can be a little dry and tiny... The sides overall are very good, especially the corn & black eyed peas, I don't recommend the green beans. Overall the BBQ is very good for this area especially when compared to the subpar chain...

We stopped in for lunch on a recommendation and sure were HAPPY we did so! The service was OK, the menu was GREAT and the food was INCREDIBLE! They offer a huge menu of what looks to be amazing BBQ-related delights. The side dishes were outstanding! Brisket tasted good... very good! Smoked perfectly! But be there early for lunch as...

Ribs, brisket, sides (mac & cheese, collard greens, mashed potatoes etc.) and cornbread. I've always been impressed with the offerings here and given that there isn't really much BBQ in the area doesn't discount this place by any means. It's solid and delicious. A staple for me when heading home from the airport.

An easy place to miss, but once you stop in you won't forget where it's at! Plenty of BBQ options to choose from. I had the 1/2 BBQ chicken plate and with cole slaw and mashed potatoes. The quality and taste of the food were top-notch. This is the perfect place to stop at if you're in the area and... More

We moved from Chantilly about 5 years ago and still love to get Willard's whenever we are in Northern Virginia. The "feedback for 4" and the "supper for 6" both are great meals and usually have some for leftovers for later as well. Sweet tea is awesome as well. If you go to Chantilly for a show at the Expo...

Tried another placed raved about on TripAdvisor that didn't live up the hype. This isn't a restaurant: it is a take out with lousing seating and food to match. We at only half our meal and thru the rest away. Save your money and go anywhere else.

Not sure what all of the hype was about. I really was not impressed. The brisket was very tender but it did not have much flavor after I got past the tiny splash of sauce. It would have been nice to have gotten some sauce on the side. My wife had the pulled pork and it was very juicy, but... More

coming from Texas, my expectations were high based on the ratings...and wasn't disappointed...incredible flavor and definitely Texas sized plates! I had the two meat platter (ribs and brisket) and two sides (green beans and slaw). All I can say is Yum across the board! Great "crust" on the brisket and flavor on the ribs. The plate was right under $14... More

Really good BBQ, You order at the front and wait till your number is called and find a table, and has all the atmosphere of a traditional American bbq place. Road music playing, nicely decorated and the food is always just right. Man... the sauces are fantastic. I am staying in the area and after discovering Willlards, went two nights... More
