I had the most wonderful sandwich! It was a nice round bun with brisket, pimento cheese and a slice of fried green tomato. Delicious! My spouse loved his BBQ platter with brisket, beans, fries and cornbread. My only disappointment was the cupcakes. I bought 2 different kinds and they were so dry that the cake part crumbled apart. I was... More

Maybe we expected too much after hearing all the wonderful reviews. Ribs were good as was the Pulled Pork my husband had. But I have to say that we have had better ribs and pulled pork. We both ordered the Slaw as a side without realizing it didn't have the mayo type dressing we are used to. Glad we went... More

Our first visit in 2015 we ate in as a family worth small children and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the experience. This visit in 2016 we got carry-out of the family meal deal and the portions were humongous and the food amazing! You definitely need to eat here!

Good food, good atmosphere if you sit outside. I would definitely go back. You have to stand in line to get your food, but that's how it's done.

I called in advance and picked up ribs, pork and chicken bar b que family dinners, plus the cornbread (which is excellent) and the pumpkin muffins. Everything was so tasty and in big quantities. Will definitely go back.

Certainly a unique experience. Had to wait in line to order our food. Then find a table to eat at. Shared with another couple. Food was excellent. Recommend the pulled pork platter. Lots of choices for sides. A fun place to enjoy the BBQ experience. A very busy place.

Ate shredded chicken sandwich and it was pretty good. Needed one of their 6 sauces to add extra flavor for sure. Coleslaw was kind of bland. It's just an ok place in my opinion.

Good BBQ can be difficult to find but these folks have it down to an art! We loved it so much that we ate there 3 times during the 4 days we were in town. When I left there, it gave me a new desire to learn how to cook BBQ at home. Maybe they ship their tasty ribs and... More

First of all I love barbecue. This place had so many great reviews that I was not expecting the quality of barbecue we had. We visited on Saturday and the place was super crowded with a line out the door. I was looking forward to some great food. The place is set up like a cafeteria so you wait in... More

Charlottesvilles loss is Gordonsvilles gain! Excellent BBQ in a very casual atmosphere. I always get the same thing, sliced brisket, cole slaw, collards, spicy pickles and corn bread. Very good value and great food.

Thank BedfordKim
