Friendly staff to serve traditional Amarican food in large portion . a good choice of food but do not expect more than a grill / burger restaurant can offer .

“The Best Barbeque and Spare Ribs Around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

The food is fantastic - a little out of the way for most Northern Va people - They do carryout orders - you can go on line and see.

“Chicago Based Chain makes inroads in Northern Virginia”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The home store in Chicago at least has some atmosphere and serves adequate barbeque with sides. The Woodbridge store is a disappointment, probably reflecting the inability of chain restaurants to pay staff adequately for this high-cost area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

The food and service was good when I ate here on a Friday night on July 2012. Can't get this kind of barbeque in New Hamphsire

“Good & Bad...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

I find their meats to be very good, but their sides seem to be lacking...especially Wilber's Beans...they seem tastless and mushy.
