“one of my fav restaurants!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

As a DC native and BBQ fan- I thought I should finally write a review for the restaurant I know and love so well. Fresh homemade ingredients, friendly service, fall off the bone ribs, killer sweet tea and pies to die for? 'Nuff said. Best bbq in the DC area, one of my favs anywhere,really! Sunday Buffet is great also-worth the wait if it's crowded.

“Watch Out For The Old Lady”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This reaastaurant is a great eating establishment, with the exception of the rude owner. The lady that sits at the front counter, with the jacket with the red, white and blue American flag colors on it, is about as rude as someone that you could ever meet. She has absolutely no people skills and acts as if she thinks you should bow down at her feet. BUT! The waiters (William) are great and the food is just as good. It is a shame that an establishment could serve such good food and have an owner so disrespectful to people. Being a disabled vet and loving a southern patriotic theme drew me in, but the lady really needs to work on her people skills. If you want good food, try it out, if you want to be in a cordial surrounding it may not be a good choice. Service, food and all is fast though and tastes great.

“Love the BBQ, Great Atmosphere, Fast,Good Service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Hostess greated me at the door promply and seated me right away in a huge booth just a the end of the lunch rush. Nice and simple menu and it's always great to read about the place and get a history lesson of the makings of a successful restaraunt.

Ordered the stuffed baked potatoe with pork.....yummy, served very quick. Oversized portions, and tough not wanting to eat it all, just to save room for some warmed Pecan Pie ala mode with vanilla ice cream. .....Heaven on a pie plate.

If you have lots of friends with you, order your meal "family style" and get serving dishes plated with lots of food to pass around. (better value). Sweet tea flows with the meal very well with the North Carolina style BBQ smoked on the property. Multiple temperature/flavors of BBQ sauces to sample on your BBQ beef, pulled pork or large sausages. Yummm.....

I'll be back.

“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Met a few friends here last night and it was a pretty decent place. It is on the boarder of a dodgy section of Woodbridge but experienced no problems there. The food was good and the service was great! The server made sure our iced teas were always filled. We ended up all getting different types of the stuffed baked potato. Everyone said it was delicious although the cornbread was a little on the dry side. All in all, I'd come eat here again!

“Great food, great service! Quite a difference from the cookie cutter restaurants in Woodbridge.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Nelson head and his wife have maintained their high standards and it shows in their steadfast customers from the area. They are also a great treat for the weary traveler from 95. Great food, great service and a great value for your dollar!!! Don't miss a chance to dine at Dixie Bones.
