We needed a quick and easy dinner for 6, so we ordered 6 dinners to take out. Our order was ready before we could get there. The best bbq I've had in ages. Two hungrily consume their half-rack of pork ribs; another loved his brisket...More

We've been here several times now with different friends this summer, the food is great, our friends always enjoyed it. I love the pulled pork and their BBQ sauce, also the baked beans have a nice kick to them. They even have a black bean...More

Too hot to cook on a Sunday afternoon, and so we decided to try a new bbq. One person had the pulled pork sandwich and my partner and I shared the half-rack ribs with two sides ( we chose potato salad and fries). The sandwich...More

This is not my favorite BBQ place in the area, but our boys like it. I find that you need to add quite a bit of extra sauce to fight the dryness. The staff is very friendly, efficient, and helpful. Their side of grilled veggies...More

I've been to a lot of BBQ restaurants and I don't know if I ever had "Tennessee Pulled Pork" before, but I didn't like it very much. I had a pull-pork sandwich w/o coleslaw, with 3 ribs and baked beans on the side. After taking...More

In a town where every other restaurant is currently offering 'pulled pork', there is only one place, in my opinion, that is worth visiting...and that is the Blue Rock BBQ. A small neighborhood restaurant in a strip mall, it offers authentic Southeastern BBQ with all...More
