After passing this place for years I decided to stop in and give it a try. I was always reluctant because it's part of a truck stop but what the heck...Anyway, its was surprisingly good. The staff chopped up the pork right there in front of us which was different. They offered two types of sauce, spicy and mild (can... More

We always enjoy sandwiches from BBQ Country. We order take out and do not eat in the restaurant. Atmosphere of the restaurant is not the best, but would recommend the food!

I like the mild BBQ sauce. I had the chopped beef, potato salad, and beans. I enjoyed all three. I was surprised that bread did not come with the plate lunch. Corn bread muffin was extra. My wife said the ribs were okay, but she said they needed more seasoning and they were dry. Sausage was good but not the... More

Found this place quite by accident. I'm so glad I stopped by. The staff was very helpful. The food is tasty and the prices are reasonable. I had a combo plate with bbq chicken and ribs. Tender ribs and chicken. I plan to try other menu items soon. Carryout is also available.

You would think it was top notch BBQ. NOT. If you want some dry roast pork with some dollar tree BBQ sauce added then you're at the right place. I didn't even finish it. Straight trash.

This place has nothing to jump up and down about , but if you find yourself in the area and hungry this is a decent stop . I had the pork BBQ sandwich with a side of collard greens . The sandwich was average , the spicy sauce was a bit mild and the greens were kind of on the... More

We eat here on occasion - it's quick service and good food. The restaurant, though, could really use a make-over. Granted, the majority of visitors are truckers.

We love trying new BBQ places, and so this one was suggested to us and we looked up on tripadvisor so we decided to try it for lunch. We got there and only about 3 people eating at lunch time on a Saturday. First thing we thought was what is wrong more people are not here. But we stuck to... More

Have been coming to BBQ country since 1999 -- always great food & service. House made Spicy BBQ sauce is a 5star. If you're looking for electric smokers, fancy table clothes and other imitation BBQ then keep lookin! BBQ country is the real thing and prices are more than fair for the huge portions.

I first stumbled upon this place on a trip up Central VA from Southside. I make a 4 hour round trip for these ribs. Haven't tried the side dishes, but the smokiness of their ribs and how the meat just falls off the bone for you while being tender and moist. Ahhh!

Thank Dave S
