We were visiting friends in the area, and the last time we were in town, they served Barbeque Exchange take out to us, so this time we ordered it for them. I can't speak about the interior of the place, but the food is good. We loved the cornbread and pumpkin muffins, the pulled pork, pork bellly and sauces. The... More

Great smoked BBQ with different sauces to suit your palette. Friendly and helpful staff. We ate in once and ordered out twice and everything was great each time. We had chicken, brisket, ribs and sausage with different sides such as greens, beans, French fries, cole slaw, and onion rings. Terrific!

The Barbeque Exchange was recommended to us by a Charlottesville local and it did not disappoint. The selection included chopped brisket, sliced brisket, pulled pork, and pork stomach among their varieties of meats. They had several pickle and sauce flavors to accompany their platters which made for a surprising amount of dinner options. To top it off we happened to... More

Twice this past week we have ordered the beef brisket to go. First time I hoped that it was just a bad day--too much fat, too much grizzle, too tough. Sadly it didn't get any better a few days later. We had such high hopes for the Exchange, but sadly it's just gone down hill and is too pricey.

Wasn't sure what to expect, this is a tiny little place right beside the railroad tracks...line was out the door...couldn't see the menu so I checked out people's plates while we waited in line. I had pulled pork and my husband got pulled pork and pork belly. Both were amazingly good, they have sauces on the tables but the meat... More

This is a local go to place. We visited on a cold rainy night but the atmosphere inside was warm and cheerful. You order at the counter, pick up your food and pick your choice of picnic table. There was a choice of meats, sides, bread and drink for $6-8. The pumpkin muffin is to die for -I would go... More

The BBQ Exchange in Gordonsville is the place to stop if you're nearby. My wife and I go there any time we're close, and will even take a day trip to make sure we get our regular fix. The prices are reasonable, the portions are big, and the food is amazing. There are five different types of BBQ sauce you... More

We've grabbed meals here before seeing a play performed by 4 County Players or on our way home from DC. It's fun to greet the cook out back as he mans the Caribbean style drum cooker. Friendly repartee between customers and with staff makes waiting enjoyable. Finger licking good pulled pork as good as in the West Indies. A welcome... More

It is hard to rate this because where I am from we have some of these best barbecue around so I am comparing it to them but it wasn't too bad overall. I girl behind the counter was not very friendly at all and didn't get my order right, but the either manager or owner was very nice and helpful.... More
