We had the BBQ pulled pork sandwich lunch special! Yummy! Excellent smoked flavor and huge sandwich. Also there was a nice choice of sauces on the table. But the bottles were a little sticky. My side of fried green tomatoes was hot and good. French...fries were hot and crispy. Staff was helpful and friendly. Not a fancy place, but obviously a local favorite.More

Great find as we travel through to Tennessee. We each had the special of a 4oz BBQ sandwich with a side and hush puppies. The meat was super tender and delicious. Perfectly cooked. Coleslaw was fresh and tasty. Hush puppies found that elusive balance of...crispy on the outside while staying softer on the inside. Service was excellent and very friendly, Food came out fast and hot. Worth the extra drive from 81 past all the chains.More

My friends and I eat at Due South BBQ all the time it is very good! Always a great choice when looking for a place for dinner, you will be glad you found this place. It's worth stopping by and getting anything on the menu....It is southern cooking at its finest, all of the fixings and BBQ are always a great choice. Compliments to the owners for having such an amazing restaurant in Christiansburg.More

This review is for the Christiansburg location. If a numerical rating system were available I would give it a -10. My group arrived just after opening and the restaurant was very cold. After a good 20 minutes an employee turned up the thermostat but by...that time we had finished our meal and preparing to leave. This employee was also seen running to her car several times – maybe it was to keep warm. The food is overpriced for the small portion of tasteless food received. The food was warm, not hot as would be expected, and we believe it was warmed in the microwave as leftovers from the previous day. They were smoking meat when we arrived so one would think you would receive fresh food. The pulled pork had very tough pieces in it that could not be bitten through nor could the fork break it up. The roll it was served on fell apart. The greens had the consistency of being from a can. The sauce bottles on the table needed to be wiped down. On top of that, they were tasteless. The table across from us had not been cleaned from the previous night and had dried pulled pork on the seat and crumbs on the table. After leaving the restaurant we then went to another to get a proper meal as we were only able to eat three bites of our sandwiches. Not once did an employee stop by the table to ask if everything was ok. We were not the only customers there. You pay when you place your order, literally right inside the single front door which is a poor arrangement.More

This cannot be called BBQ unless it’s your first trip south on I81 and you never had any before. Admittedly, I’m a North Carolina BBQ snob, but this place gives our fine southern cuisine a sad — if not bad — name. Six of us...dined, despite two going in reluctantly, having been before. They were right. The brisket has way too much gristle and the pork is dry. Ribs were clearly not of the best quality when the cooking process began and the limp, chewy result was inevitable. Beans taste like they came out of a tin can. I don’t eat chicken tenders so cannot comment. Hush puppies are the best thing on the menu. If you’re popping off the interstate to grab something, okay. But please don’t judge southern BBQ based on this place.More

We stopped at Due South for dinner while traveling along 81. It's a very casual place that has live music from time to time. It appears that most of the business is take out as the dining area was almost empty. Orders are taken at...the register and food is brought to the tables. We both had pork sandwiches, which were good but not great. There was a nice portion of meat that was tender but a little dry. The sauces helped. The sides were good, especially the banana pudding. The staff were very nice.More

Pork, brisket, potato salad, baked beans, slaw, okra...all wonderful. Dining room is quite homey. It's wonderful when they have live music. During our most recent visit, we enjoyed the "Trough" and the "Big Slop." And the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. Wonderful experience.

We haven't been in a couple years, but the food was just as fantastic! We always order a platter that comes with 2 sides and we get four different sides and share them. The sweet potatoes are sooooooooooo good! Heck, who am I kidding, it's...all so good! If you like BBQ, you will not be disappointed. They have a good variety of sauces so everyone should be able to find one and they are great.More

Bbq was good and plentiful. There were several choices of sauces to choose from which were on the table. The sides seemed small. However good. Besides the bbq, I really liked the hushpuppies, however small. I should have ordered an extra side of them.

Those were easily the worst ribs I have ever had in my life. Ribs that have been “smoked” should have some char to them. Ribs are not supposed to be served cool. Baby back ribs are supposed to be tender and fall off the bone....Especially if they have been SMOKED properly. These ribs were like biting into rubber. Really sad and maybe you just had an off day but I honestly couldn’t imagine messing up a rack that badly if I was trying to. Unacceptable given the prices you charge. Everything else was satisfactory. Not great and definitely not worth the prices charged. But it was decent. The ribs however were so appalling, combined with the fact of everything being way overpriced for what it is, honestly I don’t think I will even give this place another try. I would seriously not be able to charge people that much for the ribs you provided with a straight face. That is just embarrassing guys.More

We had pulled pork sandwich and a half rack of ribs. Both were tender and moist. The restaurant is very casual. Staff is as very helpful.
