Good BBQ

We stopped here after a day on the water. It had a large selection of BBQ and sides. Like others have mentioned, its dry-rub BBQ but the flavor is very good! Atmosphere was lovely, very comfortable and what I would hope to encounter at a BBQ joint. Service was fast and friendly. Prices were... read more

We are here last night in memory of our sister, who enjoyed eating here when we stay at Pipestem. We all ordered different items & the food was good, although Not as tasty as we had remembered in the past. The service was very good & we sat on the patio. Still an enjoyable evening

I have To admit this is the best pulled pork I have ever eaten. I eat here about 4-5 times per year and have tried a variety of foods. My favorite is by Far pulled pork, mashed potatoes (out of this world) and baked beans. I write this as I sit here eating my leftovers which includes fried green tomatoes... More

My friend and I had lunch there last Sunday. Service was excellent. My friend had a salad and pulled pork sandwich which was very good. I had gone for ribs but changed my mind to either a ribeye or sirloin steak. I chose the sirloin. Bad choice. VERY tough. Parts I couldn't chew. The marinated cold slaw and cheese-mashed potatoes...

This is the second time we have eaten at Brandon's. The barbecued ribs and chicken were delicious, nice and moist. The onion rings were hand dipped and were excellent. The service was great too. A must if you're in the area.

We had reservations for dinner for a group of 20. It took almost 45 minutes to get our tea, water, or soda (no bar orders). It took another 20 minutes to get our food order and another 40 minutes to get our food. The wings and tilapia were frozen products and tasteless. The food arrived very cold and my particular...

Located new the entrance to Pipestem state park, we used their catering services for a family reunion which we held at Pipestem. They served a BBQ and Chicken dinner with the trimmings; everything was fabulous. Their BBQ is moist, lean and has a smoked flavor. The portions were large and everything was delivered hot. After we discovered how good they... More

Enjoyed a lovely dinner at Brandon's with my wife we were seated quickly and was greeted by our server who did an excellent job taking care of us, sorry I missed noticing her name. We both enjoyed the onion ring basket as an appetizer. I have found for a BBQ place they have wonderful steaks so I enjoyed the Bourbon... More

The BBQ sandwich was good. The BBQ was dry rub mix. Tasty, but I prefer sauce-based BBQ. The wings - just like red heads - were not my type. They were fried with seasoning. I prefer grilled or baked wings slathered in sauce. The fried green tomatoes were good, but I was not crazy about the accompanying sauce. They have... More

Got the rib combo both 1/2's where dry. Baked beans from a can. I didn't even finish the ribs. Chilli's ribs are better. My son got catfish (fried) still had the skin on! Another member of our party got chicken strips all I can is banquet frozen chicken strips. Did even eat 1 of them.
