The location on Calhoun Drive is a great place to stop when traveling through Alexandria on I-49. It’s attached to a gas station, and there’s another station across the street. My husband and I enjoyed the chopped pork sandwich and the sliced beef po-boy. The Cole slaw has lots of mayonnaise, and the bread is spread with butter and then... More

Came here yesterday for lunch to order a half chicken and was told they were out of chicken. What barbeque joint runs out of chicken? That wasn't the bad part, if you ever come here and get in the drive thru line at lunchtime, there is no way out. You have to stay in line and can't back up or... More

My family and I dined here when visiting Alexandria recently. We ordered the family Gumbo and it tasted delicious. The staff are friendly and pricing is reasonable. I would dine here again when next visiting.

Been looking for a great BBQ place since i returned to Alexandria. This is not the place. I've tried Outlaws and they aren't the place either for BBQ. Logans is next.

Eddie's BBQ has specials every day that are good eats and easy on your wallet. I especially recommend the RIBS. The meals include side dishes along with the meat. While I find that the sides aren't the best or most tasty in town, the BBQ ribs more than make up for this.

My wife and I left after work for a parent's weekend at our son's college. We drove over 400 miles and were shot-but hungry. So we were headed to a Cracker Barrel and saw this BBQ Joint just in front. We were late, they were already beginning to close when I walked in. These folks didn't skip a beat-they stepped... More

One of the best BBQ choices in town. Great sandwiches, right down to the bread. The selection of sides is also very good. You can't go wrong.
