The BBQ will make you drive miles out of your way to go get some . And you have to try his hotdogs. You order... More

Fast and delicious no frills BBQ. Loved the brisket. Some of the reviews said they only serve brisket on Fridays, but I was told they serve it for breakfast and continue to serve it at lunch until they run out. Yum!

Found this little gem on TripAdvisor and boy, are we glad we did!! Food was great, had burnt ends and pulled pork...yummy!!! Employees were all very nice, spoke with Scott and he was a true southern gentleman. Loved the place and the food, will definitely stop again on our next trip through.

We were both in the mood for BBQ. To me, that means brisket / ribs. Disappointed to discover no ribs, and only have brisket on Fridays. Ordered sausage / chicken combo. Sausage was dry with little flavor. BBQ beans were just pork and beans from a can.

My second favorite BBQ place in the C'ville area (after J's Simply Soul in White). The food here is excellent and not too costly. Clearly popular with the locals.

We were in the mood for BBQ and decided to find this place. Wow. It was so good. That is the most moist pork I have had in a long time. I don't know how they do it but man was it good. I loved their homemade sauces and I can't wait to go back on a Friday and try... More

Great local favorite! The absolutely BEST chili slaw dogs in town! The Bar B Q is award winning and out of this world! The service is great! If you go for lunch, you better get there by 11:30 or you will be waiting on a LONG line!!!

Love the barbecue, the sauce, the brunswick stew, and the brisket (when available). So glad to have a really good bbq place in our town and owned by a local.

Thank Bill G
