The amounts of each were very generous. The ribs and the brisket were moist and tender. I fine most BBQ restaurants have difficulty getting those two meats right.... More

We had heard a lot about the Exchange, but we loved it - the seating was great and the barbeque was the best we've had. The staff was polite and quick.

This place may not look like much from the outside but oh is the food good!!! Ask the staff their suggestions on the food of the day, they were spot on with what we got. The cornbread is to die for, we bought extra to take home!!! The pork belly was delicious. The kid menu is pretty standard, chicken tenders,... More

The first time I went here we found it just driving by. We stopped in and had an excellent meal! I had family from NY visiting and they absolutely LOVED IT...as I did. This is what I consider GREAT BBQ...it's slow cooked directly on premises...in the back of the restaurant. Everything from the meal...ribs/pulled pork/cole slaw/hush puppies are the authentic...

We ordered the chicken plate, pulled pork, heaven sandwich, fries, cornbread, baked beans, Mac n cheese. Most of it was average- nothing spectacular. The baked beans were awful. We now know to stick with Big B's in Ruckersville.

Thank smedlgfry
