Great pulled chicken. Wonderful smoked barbecue flavor. Very reasonably priced. Much better choice than all the fast food places at this exit.

Small family owned restaurant w good service and excellent food. Lunch or dinner, go for the buffet! You get to taste a variety of good food. The pulled Pork is delicious and does not even need a sauce to flavor it. Different food varieties throughout the week. #GuyFieri, when will you visit this great barbecue place?

The minced BBQ has great flavor with the right amount of natural smoke body. Is a classic Virginia (North Carolina) style meat accompanied by home style green beans, collard greens, stewed tomatoes, and world class cold slaw. I have tried BBQ throughout the south, often referred to as Dixie BBQ. You will wear your car out finding anything that matches... More

Went here tonight for the first time. I have heard a lot of good things about this place. We ordered brisket with baked potato and fried Oysters with fries and Mac and cheese. The food was not bad but it was nothing to say this was the best meal ever. They had a buffet but it looked dry or not... More

Family owned and operated (I met the owners in church), they have a great vinegary sauce that my step dad from Atlanta brought me up on. Not thick, not sweet...they have other sauces as well. They have jars to take home too

The dinner buffet is good, but some t Of the items on the buffet are obviously canned, but the bbq, chicken, and hush puppies are great.

Perhaps I am not a good judge of barbecue so I was a a bit disappointed with my meal - sliced pork which was tender - served without sauce which was on the table. I ordered Texas fries which were loaded with grease - regular fries on other dinners looked much better. Fried Onion rings were good. Brocks offers an... More

Ate the lunch buffet here. The good thing is that the price was only $7.99. Food was all average. Fried shrimp was good but the clam strips were over cooked. Assorted vegetables and Brunswick stew. Hush puppies were good. Overall it was average food but a decent deal for the money. I would probably eat here again.

Brock's is one of those old town favorites. They offer off the menu dining or a buffet. The buffet varies each night. Kids eat free on Thursdays but be sure to be careful what they order. The kid's barbecue is just barbecue and one side. No roll. I made the mistake of ordering one of the kids a barbecue sandwich... More
