This is one of my favorite places in town when I've just got to have lots of meat. It is a casual counterpoint to the rest of Belmont's upscale offerings.

Just a tiny little place with a few indoor stools and a spacious outdoor seating area. The pulled pork sandwich was done right.

I dropped by Belmont BBQ to pick up a quick dinner. When I walked in - the only customer there - I had to stand by for several minutes as the cashier and cook finished a verbal joust. Then I ordered. When the cook asked whether I wanted hot or mild sauce, the cashier interrupted to tell me "He doesn't... More

The woman and the cook were in a heated argument when my husband arrived to order takeout, and did not stop when a customer came in. I ordered brisket- it was the driest, toughest piece of meat possible. I could not possibly have eaten it in sandwich form, and cutting it was a chore. I threw the whole thing out,... More

I'm really sad to have to write a bad review about this place, since it's right in my neighborhood and I like supporting local businesses, but I had a very bad customer service experience when I used them to supply BBQ for my event. I called in a catering order after looking at their website. When I ordered, pulled pork... More

Get a slop bucket, go outside, sit down and dog in to some original greatness! And try some ribs while you are there. No sauce, just off the grill. So so good. Nothing special as far as atmosphere, just some really good bbq and sides

Not sure if Charlottesville is known for BBQ, but this was really good! I'm a Texan, so BBQ is very important to me. We had the BBQ pulled pork and the taste was fabulous. Its not a fancy place, more like a joint, which I like.

Ordered ahead of time, was quoted 10 minutes, the slop buckets were ready to be picked up. We had requested one of them not have cole slaw, and it was prepared correctly. Not only was the barbeque flavored as described, but the mixture of various types of food was exceptional. Excellent lunch.

Get the slop bucket! Trust me! Good service, quick, and inexpensive. Just wish they had more places to sit and eat!
