“Disappointing Barbecue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We finally went to eat at Urban Bar-B-Que, located in the strip mall of Asburn. It seemed more geared to being a take-out place, but there are some booths, a cute bar with stools along the window, and a few tables where you can eat at, The decor was barbecue cute. You place your orders at the counter and pay there. Their staff was helpful and knowledgable.
The downside was the food - I had no idea that the salad had tiny cubes, rather than shredded meat in it. And the dressing, which was supposed to be blue cheese, could have easily passed for ranch - it wasn't until I found a tiny piece of cheese actually in it that I realized it must be their version of bc. After a few bites, we decided not to eat the salads there and that perhaps they would improve with some real blue cheese dressing so we wrapped our dinners to bring them home. But by the time we got home, we were not feeling well and threw the food away.
I gave this chain restaurant an "average" rating, but their food was definitely less than that.

“Really good BBQ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Coming from Texas, we didn't know what to expect with this place. Not bad at all. Would recommend ordering by the pound instead of individual orders. Cheaper that way. 1/2 price Wednesdays baby back ribs and kids eat free on Tuesdays.

Recommend and will return.

“Good choice in Ashburn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

One of the better choices in Ashburn. Decent food and prices are good.
The employees are very personable unlike a lot of other area restaurants.
