The BBQ was great. Husband and I had NC style BBQ and it was delicious and as advertised. Just like I grew up eating. The hush puppies are a little bigger than I am used to, but good flavor. Slaw was just like home, vinegar based and not sweet, perfect addition to the sandwich. Fried okra was delicious and HOT... More

The BBQ was excellent! I had the North... More

The food is refrigerated and microwaved. I saw the guy in back take the ribs from a wrapper. Then I heard the microwaves in the back. When we asked if it was microwaved we were told the ribs were not cooked on sight because the place is too small. I asked for sauce on my ribs not knowing is was... More

On the way to Colesville Nursery at lunch time and google searched a quick stop for lunch. BBQ sounded good, so we gave it a try. And it did not disappoint!! The owner was eager to give us a run down on the menu. I got the Carolina style BBQ, my husband got the tomato based style. We got a... More

Really good Virginia and North Carolina styles of barbecue in the heart of Ashland, walking distance from Randolph-Macon College. The only down side is the store-bought rolls used for the sandwiches. Buy BBQ in bulk and take it home.

Drove out of our way to stop off here. Website said they should be open. Random handwritten sign on door "Closed 300-400pm" We arrived at 315pm. Wasted our time. Will not be stopping by again.

Yes it was food, but no it was not positively memorable. Rude to the customers out of most items and more expensive than needed. We had to go out for more/different food even after eating.

I come here for the BBQ. North Carolina Style BBQ only. It's the real deal. If you close your eyes while your eating it you will swear you're in NC. Can't speak on any thing but the BBQ though. One thing I must comment on though, the roll is a bit too big. NC BBQ is eaten on a much... More

Everything we had here was just delicious and I wanted more. All served by a friendly person along with limitless ice tea. We loved the pulled pork sandwiches, the hush puppies. the decor and the little shack in back of the restaurant, where the kids thought the "God, Guns and Guts Made America Great" sign was ironic - I told...
