We come here pretty often -- several times a month. Hood's BBQ is the very definition of "neighborhood gem." Their ribs, pulled pork and brisket are truly delicious. Servings are generous and well-priced. And daily specials are also delicious. One of my favorites is their meat loaf. Service is friendly and they're BYO (with a small corkage fee). They'll even...

Dawn and Larry and their kids have done Unionville proud. Once a little take-out spot, now they have it all. I just had the freshest salad for lunch that puts the big dogs to shame. Topped it with their very own BBQ pulled chicken. It was delicious. 5 of us had lunch and every plate was empty. Efficient service and... More

Ordered beef brisket and pulled pork for a large family gathering (35+ people). Tons of food and all delicious. The meats were juicy and flavorful and the cornbread was divine. Staff were helpful and easy to work with. Will definitely use Hood's again for BBQ catering!

Hoods is a family owned restaurant in quaint Unionville, PA. The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is quaint and relaxed, the food is excellent! They might even have a few items off to the side for sale like t-shirts, jewelry, cards, quilts or other homemade items.

While in Chesco decided to try this based upon other TripAdvisor reviews. I must admit that while the food was good (but expensive for what was served) I was disappointed in many facets of the experience. Like food served on china-like plates with really good silverware. It doesnt "fit" the restaurant. The good: the cornbread alone could be a meal.... More

When I had take out earlier in the week, the ribs were perfectly smoked with just a bit of sauce on them. There was also a bit of sauce on the side. They were absolutely delicious. Tonight, the ribs seem cooked, and smothered with sauce. Completely different experience, and not in a good way... Same with the chicken wings covered... More

while driving around Kennett Square I discovered this place across the main highway. had no idea it was there. The waitress recommended the "Hoodie" a pulled pork sandwich with cheese and coleslaw. It was exactly as described, a favorite of most the customers. I now know where it is so I expect if I am just driving around I'll be... More

My friend and I both had sandwiches that were very good. I had the Hoody which is an excellent pulled pork sandwich with much meat. My fried had a nice hamburger that he was pleased with. The service was good. The deli was clean.

I've been driving by this place for years. After their recent renovations I felt it was time to finally check it out. There's a very friendly older gentleman who is usually there to welcome you and help you find a seat and everyone couldn't have been friendlier. They also do an excellent job at keeping the place clean. It's BYOB,... More
