Want to try a sample of different bbqs from the area? Pork, beef, or chicken with a selection of VA or NC sauces, add in hush puppies, cold slaw and sweet tea. You're sampling southern in a comfortable, friendly stop.

We stopped by for dinner after hearing how good the BBQ is here. It really is a little hole-in-the-wall sort of place... part of a few little shops in what looks like an old car dealership building. Not a lot of parking, but we had...More

This place was so good. I was in Richmond for a work trip and stopped at this place for a late lunch. The place was empty, but I don't know why, because it was excellent. I had the VA pulled pork and my colleague had...More
