Great pulled pork, perfectly seasoned

I loved the pulled pork! As a group who goes to different bbq joints this is my fave so far for the pulled pork with no sauce or nothing on it delish! Sides weren't much, cornbread was way overcooked. Staff at the counter wasn't very friendly but a nice employee helped us secure a table for 8... read more

Stopped by Gordonsville on Sunday after reading some reviews, and as a native Texan, I can finally say I was impressed with a take out order of sliced Brisket on the east coast. The brisket was tender yet moist, smoky and flavorful. The pulled pork was equally good. Among the best barbeque outside Texas or Memphis.

First off: they were the ONLY place around that had black-eyed peas on New Year's Day this year. Their style of BBQ is a bit different than this Texas transplant is used to, but it's good and the variety of BBQ sauces are interesting.

Thinking about the food they serve makes me hungry! Be sure to designate whether you want a platter or a sandwich. Go there with an empty stomach!

We heard how this was the best BBQ. I would say it was good, I loved the buns for the pulled pork sandwich. We all enjoyed our meals. But, for me the BBQ was a little spicy for what I like. The service was really good and friendly. Price was very reasonable as well.

A local told us about this place, and it was the best bbq I've had for awhile. Friendly, casual, good sides-loved the potato salad, loved the sauces.

This is the real deal. Barbeque is plentiful with lots of side choices. We went early and there was still a line and tight parking. We sampled several entrees along with mac n cheese, veggies and fries. All were delicious.

We liked BBQ Exchange so much that we ate there twice in one week during our vacation. The pulled pork sandwich was really good though I wish the bread was not quite so thick. Delicious collard greens and pumpkin muffins! We did not like the ribs as there was too much rub on top and they tasted like meat that... More

A popular place! We stopped for lunch just in time to beat the crowd. Great selection of food at reasonable prices. A good selection of sauces, too. We'll be back.
