Great BBQ!

The food is great. However, the building and parking could really use some work. Limited size of the dining area assures crowding. Nevertheless, the food is worth the discomfort

Delish! This is your go-to BBQ in Northern Virginia. It looks a little like a "dive". That can only mean awesome!

Had lived in the Fredericksburg area for 45 years before moving and have eaten there for many years.The real BBQ taste without being smothered in sauce that many restaurants do.They do have several...

The pulled pork BBQ was very lean, but had little flavor. We added their BBQ sauce that has a sweet vinegary flavor & was very good. The cold slaw was bland &... More

Great food (pulled pork BBQ, mac and cheese, onion rings); great service; great old-time decor. Very inexpensive, too! It was a little tricky negotiating the roads to the restaurant, but well worth it.

We had searched BBQ places on "advisor" the day before,,,just looking. The one the GPS had closest was no longer open. This one was next closest. Picture an old brick corner store with a smoker out front. Menu had ribs, pork and beef. Service was very good and friendly. Food was fast arriving and plentiful. Sides were all good. Great... More

My husband and I went for lunch ordering ribs and pulled pork sandwich. Meh. The ribs were reheated most likely from the day before, dry and tough. We shall not return. Pitiful.
