“This BBQ rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I completely devoured my three meat combo and this is the place for BBQ in NoVA! The employees were very friendly and also ordered a half rack of ribs and they were lean for St. Louis ribs and they actually fell off the bone and were quite meaty. I also had collards and their corn, which is a combo of black eyed peas and corn. This place is awesome and even the manager at the Westin in Tysons Corner went there for lunch the following day and thought it was the best bbq hands down in the area!

The prices were reasonable and the bbq rocked!

“Not bad, but no really good either”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Too much black pepper in all the food. Sweet Bar B Que sauce is watery, venigery and below average. Really not impressed at all.

“Off the hook - TripAdvisor did not let me down (again)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Their BBQ is off the hook! It is on point! Delicious. I am "new" to the area and checked in with TripAd...I always check with TripAd, and BBQ sounded good, soooo...I called in, placed my order, and within a few minutes, I was sinking my chops into some fine and delicious fall of the bone meat and their BBQ sauce is on. I ordered potato salad (which was awesome), and dirty rice (which was not as good as I have had, but okay). The corn bread was too sweet for my liking.

“Great Place for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Quite a large selection to choose from and they pile the BBQ onto the sandwiches -- so a sandwich w/2 sides is quite a good meal and will fill you up.....always busy during lunch. Prices are good for what you get and it is close to Texas style BBQ for quality and taste given you are in Virginia. They offer daily specials so take time to fully scan the chalk board menus and also getting there a little before or after the lunch time rush improves your chances of getting a seat.....a small place.

“True BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

I have been to BBQ places all over the states (Texas, KC, NC, SC, Southwest, you name it).

I am not saying that this is the best ever. I am saying that this place can hold up to the best standards of BBQ, especially for those who love Pit-style. This place even smells like a BBQ place should.


The burnt ends are better than anything I had in KC (including Fiorellas/JackStack).

Regardless of your preference, if you are in this area and in the mood for some down home BBQ, skip the chain restaurants and check this gem out.

They also offer take out.
