Reviewed October 13, 2012

A good option for a fast meal while on the road. I had the 2 meat plate with brisket and chopped pig. I'm not a big fan of their sauces. The cole slaw and green beans were tasty..

“Good atmosphere”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The pulled pork and chopped pork were a little dry. The ribs and turkey were good. The chiken strips were good according to the kids.

“Dependable barbecue”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Van's is excellent barbecue and you can always depend on it to be good. Occassionally they'll offer a philly cheese which is amazing.
