Their billboard says "Best Dang BBQ in Virginia" and they are right! Their Carolina style BBQ pork sandwich is one of the best I have ever had! Take Exit 205 off of Interstate 81 for a great meal!

I stop here a couple of times a week. It is a little bit run down but the people that work here are real friendly. didn't really care for the barbeque the ribs were really greasy however their fried chicken is some of the best I've ever eaten highly recommend the fried chicken

Although other reviews state that this is "just a truck stop window" with OK food, we enjoyed it for what it was. We ordered the platter of Carolina and Texas pulled pork with sweet potato fries and the baked beans. The meat was decent and we liked the Carolina sauce and the green chile baked beans.
Our thinking is that if a lot of truckers stop there, then it must be something worth trying once.

This is merely a counter in the corner of a rundown truck stop. The food wasn't awful but it surely isn't memorable either. The truck stop is so run down that it could make you question the food, although we didn't have any problems. Rest rooms are nasty - avoid them.

I had the Carolina barbecue. My husband had the Texas barbecue. We split the sandwiches and tasted each and both were very very good. And there was a lot of meat on the sandwich. The slaw and fries were also very good. And the sandwich side and drink for $6.99 was a very good deal.
