My friends and I visited Charlottesville for a bachelorette party last month and on the day of our wine tour, got it in our minds that we wanted BBQ. Our guide, Anna (Monticello Wine Tours, she/they are amazing) suggested Smoked and we were all super excited. Everything was AMAZING. I had the pulled pork with mac and cheese, French fries, and corn bread and I literally cleaned the plate. We literally couldn't stop saying how good it was all day. Would highly recommend!

In the role of "Mother of the Bride", I flew north to help find dress and food. A golden hour wedding at a winery will now, also be YUMMY. Thank you Kelly and Ryan for a fantastic sampling.

The happy couple checked caterer off their list. Don't miss this place.

Hands down best BBQ in this area (surrounding counties included) and a standard to judge other BBQ. We tried it all...the pork, chicken, beef, chicken salad, sausage and every last bite of it was excellent (perfect balance of meat + smokey grill). It is all about the meat, and you will receive a heaping portion for your money. That the rolls are grilled - bonus! Sauces (regular, spicy, blackberry, mustard) come in a separate container and all are worth a try. The sides complement the meat: beautifully chopped (not a fan of those stray over-fibrous chunks of cabbage) cool coleslaw with just a hint of carrot, indulgent (and cheesiest) mac&cheese, BBQ beans with a smooth smokey, meaty flavor...but...THE BEST side is the cheesy, smokey, bacon-laden grits. Ahhh, heaven :) Had to return for seconds. If you love BBQ you MUST try this cart (next to the Market St Parking Garage elevator that lets you out at mall level). If you don't love BBQ you will be won over! Be sure to arrive around noon and before 2pm. There will be a line, but rightly so!

The food was good, but he didn't use gloves. I'd feel better if he had a sink or even just used a pair of disposable gloves.

The food is good, but sanitation is the problem. I have had his bbq many times, other people picked it up. Last week I went to pick it up. I understand it is cart food, but the owner and his helper don't use gloves, and they wipe their sweaty foreheads and then go back to making food. I actually took a video so my workmates would understand why I came back empty handed. Get a sink dude, or where some gloves and while your head with a towel. Yuck!
