“Behind the times”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

A lot of the buffet food was dried out and overdone from sitting in the steam table for the service. Off the menu was pricey for the quality and quantity of we got. There are better BBQ restaurants in Chester.

“dine-in,carry-out and catering~ Brock's does it all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

This is our favorite barbecue. We have taken it to family reunions in Maryland and Bedford VA. Our Northern relatives absolutely love and request this each year. The grilled chicken is marvelous! moist, tender and delicious! I have been to many events catered by Brock's which are always great. From dine-in, to carry-out and catering events- Brock's does an out standing job!

“Never been disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

We love going to Brock's for the buffet on weekdays. The value is incredible and we think the beef broth flavored green beans and the minced pork are the best and as good as if you drive to Eastern NC. If you go on Fri or Sat, get the brisket. The buffet is almost double the price on Fri. and Sat. and not worth the price in our opinion. If you like sweet tea, country cooking and fast, friendly service then you'll like Brock's. I've gone for at least 10 years and have NEVER been disappointed.

“This place is horrible!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2011

We went to Brock's BBQ for dinner a few nights ago. I ordered a shrimp dinner, my husband had the buffet and my girls had corn dog nuggets. The buffet was $15.99 and consisted of about 10 items. The BBQ was very runny, the beans looked like they had been sitting there all day and the shrimp were ice cold (almost frozen). My husband got one plate and hardly ate any of it. My shrimp dinner looked like it came from Captain D's... very poor quality. Needless to say, the food is horrible. There are much better BBQ places in Midlothian!

“A Family Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2011

The one place our family can always agree on.
Easily the best BBQ around. Not overly fancy, but fresh hot & tasty home cooking every time we visit. A very friendly staff who go the extra mile to make sure you're well taken care of.
The lunchtime all you can eat buffet during the week is an incredible value for money. I work in the construction industry and sometimes have to take customers out to lunch who don't have any time to waste waiting around. So I always suggest Brock's because we get seated straight away and a server is with you within moments taking care of your beverage order. In the meantime we're up at the buffet loading plates with a wonderful selection of food that always hits the spot.
Try the incredibly addictive home-made baked beans, and don't forget to leave room for dessert. (Also included on the buffet)
Unfortunately they don't open on Sundays (Come on guys, even Ukrops/Martins is open on Sundays now) Also no outdoor seating is available to enjoy warm sunny days and cool evenings. -That aside, we're solid fans who hope they never lose those secret family recipies...................
