About a month ago, I participated in an event that was catered by Brock's BBQ. While at this event, the food that participants could choose from was Pork BBQ, Grilled Chicken, Baked Beans, Cole Slaw, Potato Salad, Chocolate Chips Cookies, Brownies and Sweet Tea or Lemonade to drink. So this review is essentially a review on the catering service. Want... More

The BBQ is typical of the area which is what I like. Want more flavor, use the sauce (which is good) on the tables. Buffet is good. I was there on Tuesday and fried chicken was on the line. It is cooked just right and was hot and fresh. Hot rolls were soft and fresh, mashed potatoes were good. Not... More

Well priced buffet available, different each night. The BBQ has little cooked-in taste, which seems to be par for BBQ available in this area. Does not stand out.

Went for indulgent barbecue food so I loosened my belt and ordered the "bbq combo platter" - the most expensive meat option - expecting huge portions of tasty, fattening pork, beef and chicken. Unfortunately it was all a little disappointing. While the barbecue chicken was passable, the minced pork, ribs and brisket lacked flavour. What's more, it was an easily... More

We were in the area on vacation and I picked this place to eat based upon recommendations here and at other ratings blogs.I was not disappointed! The chopped pork was moist and smoky, quite good. The brisket was way above average with a deep smoke flavor with good texture and juicyness. The sides were all good, service was prompt and... More

My hubby and I get the itch to visit Brocks every now and then..... the buffet is good; love the veggies. We also love the warmth of the place, everyone is so nice and accommodating. I'm not crazy about the BBQ, but it's palatable and the cole slaw and hush puppies are very good. I think the buffet is a... More

I have been visiting Brock's when I travel to the Chester area for years. This last trip on 4/19/13 was a bit of a disappointment. I brought my better half, who'd never been there before, and really talked up the fried chicken. We ordered the buffet as always, which is a good value. Instead of fried chicken they had chopped...

The food is always great at Brock's. They have wide variety of menu items at a reasonable price. The lunch buffet is legendary and the people are extremely friendly and welcoming. Our company had them cater an event and it was excellent as well.

Brock's has been around for so long, very laid-back comfortable atmosphere, good buffet if you don't want to order from the menu, or just want to taste a little bit of everything, but they have the absolutely BEST fried chicken! Better than my hubby's southern grandman's, and that is saying ALOT! LOL.
