This place is great. Simple, real home made BBQ meals and deals. Eat in or take out. I,d love to have them cater an event. Place is clean, employees are believe are children of the owner. Family business.

Tucked away in a corner in a small shopping center that is not heavily frequented off 299. The brisket and pork are great. The signature sauce (vinegar-based, Virginia style) is excellent. The greens are good, too. People are surprised how good this barbecue is. They...More

Young's is not my favorite style of BBQ, but we get it every month or so. You have to add your own sauce, I usually have to squirt the "X-Tra Hot" on to every bite. I could eat BBQ every week, and used to when...More

As a road warrior working my way across various states on sales calls, my search for stellar (or, at least, above average) BBQ continues. You're not missing much if you forego Young's. The brisket was on the dry side and relatively bland, the baby back...More
