Group had pulled pork sandwiches and nachos. On table was extensive list of outages- mostly bottle beverages (only was soda served). Pork was barely smoked. Sauce you add at table was good. You could add chips to the sandwich for a $1- tiny BAG of...chips, off brand. Nachos can’t even be described as nachos. Really small paper container, few chips then pile of pork on top and COLD shredded cheese piled on really thick. Side sour cream and we left off jalapeños. Cheese so thick and cold didn’t even melt over semi warm pork.More

Went there for BBQ ribs and a Baked Potato, the opposite of what you’d think. The ribs were so dried out and all you get is ribs, nothing else unless you pay extra. The Loaded baked potato was huge and great value for money, there...is not a lot of choice in Lynchburg but compared to other ribs these were below par. Staff were friendly and reasonably process, ribs of that quality not worth it. Make the right choices. ☺️More

Highly recommend Barrel House BBQ. Food was amazing and we had excellent service. The Grilled Cheese Crack Jack is so delicious, we ate until we were stuffed. Don’t pass on visiting this place. The potato salad and baked were awesome too.

This is the second time we ate at here and it was just as delicious as I remembered last year. I had the pulled pork/cheese/ Crack sandwich (no, not real crack...cmon it is a family place) and the sweet potato casserole. It was delicious and...the pulled pork was so tender. If we are in the area it is a must. Don't miss out on this gem. It is reasonably priced as well. It was harder to get a seat inside so just like last time we sat outside. Just had to let the hostess know and after a short wait, our order was in etc.More

Wow! By far the best pulled pork I’ve ever had! We had pulled pork crack sandwich, ribs, loaded baked potato, banana pudding dessert! Hubby loved the ribs juicy fall off the bone. The potato salad was awesome! Really great portions for the price! We were...there for lunch. Very delicious! Put this on your next meal stop especially while visiting Jack Daniels Distillery Tour! 5 stars hands down!!!More

Seemed to be the only place open. Place fits with the area. BBQ was good and so were the sides! We had pork and chicken and both were tender and flavorful. Good place to eat in Lynchburg!

Nothing about this place is like a chain restaurant. It’s great and a quick lunch if you are headed to the Jack Daniel’s tour.

We split a full rack of ribs for a Sunday lunch. Ribs were dry and lukewarm and pricy ($30+) Atmosphere had writing on every imaginable surface and created an almost dingy appearance. Out of unsweet tea and soft drinks were Pepsi products in the plastic...bottle. Did not try Grilled Cheese sandwich.More
