The restaurant was fine. The best part about it was the people who worked there. Very excited about barbecue! Otherwise, the food was good- no issues. A little pricey but barbecue tends to be that way. They have limited indoor seating but they have a...More

Learned about Ace's existence from TV clip during Charlottesville Demonstrations on August 12. Finally got my buds together for a lunch foray. So glad we did. It's gonna take a long time to work my way through the extensive menu, and today we started off...More

$27 for two people for breakfast. Service was friendly, but the biscuits and potatoes were at best average. Based on the reviews, we were disappointed.

Came by to support a local business who ran into a rough day recently during the Charlottesville mob protest. Though a TV interview was being filmed while we were there, we were waited on right away! Everything we had was fantastic! Fried green tomatoes were...More

Friendly staff, amazing way to start your day! Fresh biscuits with eggs any way you want them. Pimento cheese makes the sandwich complete. So glad we found this place!

My daughters and I stopped in for lunch today based on other Trip Advisor reviews and boy were they right! Ace's is a bit off the beaten path, but you won't be disappointed. We were welcomed in as soon as we walked in the door!...More

We never would've found this place without a UVA friend's recommendation, and I'm so glad we did! It's a massive breakfast (didn't eat lunch until 4pm), but so perfectly southern and delicious. Not being from those parts, I would've liked more guidance on the sauces...More
