“Great combination of bbq and sauce”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

I ordered the half rack with sides. It is on the pricey side...$19, but the portions were quite generous. The meat could have been more tender and "off-the-bone," mine was not. It might have been taken out a bit too soon from the smoker?? Well, I loved the tomato-based bbq sauce: sweet and quite mild, but the heat crept up in me later on...nice little surprise. Loved those little hushpuppies!! Best I ever had. Waitress was superb...and earned a big tip from me. Overall, good meal and experience.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We stopped by for lunch on our way back to Smith Mountain Lake from Roanoke. All I can say is WOW! No one in our group of 7 had anything bad to say about their meals. From the wings to the bbq sandwiches, it was excellent! Our group only tried the NC bbq style bbq and it was as good as any we have had here in NC. Don't make it to the Roanoke area very often but this location is going in our restaurant rotation! Thanks for a great lunch! Oh yes, service was excellent also. Very attentive and quick. All you can ask for!

“Ridiculously Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Having lived in the Carolina's,Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama, I know barbecue. This here is some fine eatin. Starting with the basic slow cooked Boston Butt, Li'l Pigs moves on to Jerk Sauce and the most tender pork loin. Maybe it's the pleasant outdoor seating and occasional live music, but I just love this place. Despite walk in groups of 20 and 25, our waitress was prompt and down home nice. Just a hop off I-81.

“Great NC BBQ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Husband saw sign on RT 81 South and took exit, before I had a chance to check TA. Surprised to find this great little restaurant! Very clean, excellent pulled pork sandwiches. We got the Carolina vinegar style, and added extra sauce. Wonderful! Stored this address in our GPS so we can get our BBQ fix when traveling north or south from/to FL. Added bonus was watching the photo show of local and Blue Ridge Parkway photographs submitted by customers, on very large HD TV!

“Great stop off rt 81”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

We were looking for a place to stop while traveling from Pennsylvania to South Carolina off Rt. 81. We didn't want to stop at the usually chains and we didn't want to go too far off rt. 81. We had a great lunch. The food was good and the staff was nice. Yes, the onion stars were wonderful!
