This place has the best BBQ sauces. We happened to be walking in the area of this restaurant and the smell of the pork cooking over an open fire pulled us in. We ordered the sampler meal which was more than the two of us could eat. It included pulled pork, ribs, chicken, and brisket with hush puppies and cole... More

After reading everything, my family and I decided we'd finally give it a try. I wish we hadn't. My son got the tenders and fries, I got the wings w/ no sauce, mac and cheese and fries, and my husband got the ribs, pulled pork, coleslaw, and mac and cheese. I don't think a single one of us ate all... More

The aroma of smoking pork as you pull into this place gives away that you are in for some good pig.Traveling south toward Charlottesville,we took a detour to Gordonsville to hit the BBQ Exchange. Definitely worth the detour. Had the Heaven Sandwich - which is over the top good, and 4 bones of ribs, which are different from anything before... More

Pretty good all around bbq. The ribs were good as you could taste the smoke in them. Pork and brisket are good but felt I needed to add sauce to it to make it better. Service is good and overall a decent place to eat or take-out.

We were in the area visiting the numerous tasting rooms at the vineyards last year and this restaurant was recommended to us and it was so great that we knew we had to go back again during our visit this year. The food did not disappoint and would highly recommend to all.

We were so lucky that the Barbeque Exchange was recommended to us by the resort we were staying at last year. We have gone back several times and it is always delicious! It does get crowded, but worth the wait!!!! Can't say enough about it! Food, price, customer service - all get very high marks. You won't be disappointed.

What a great BBQ place! We were staying at a nearby Inn for our anniversary and heard how great the BBQ was, and had to stop by. We weren't disappointed - delicious, tender pork bbq with great sides (I had the baked beans and Mac and cheese). This is clearly a must if you are in the area!

We eat at BBQ Exchange regularly and it's our favorite in Central VA. We drive up from Charlottesville and prefer it to all other BBQ restaurants in the area. The staff is always very kind and the food is some of the best. Pulled pork, hush puppies, mac salad, mac n cheese, and pickles are must-haves. Their selection of sauces... More

Went based on reviews and was not disappointed. All the food, even my tofu bbq was absolutely delicious. My family liked the sides. Definitely try some pickles.

I live in Charlottesville and we make sure anytime we have visitors from out of state we bring them here. Amazing food! Last time we went the cook took us outside and showed us all the BBQs and how they cook it. I would definitely call this pure BBQ. My wife claims it's not southern BBQ it's home country BBQ,... More
