Brock's BBQ is a locally owed business that draws people from all over the metro area for their BBQ. In addition to their famous BBQ they provide a generous buffet as well as the option to order from a menu. The staff is incredibly friendly. Pat who is a real jewel, has worked there for over 25 years! Their salads... More

Heard raving reviews so we decided to give it a try. Very disappointed. BBQ seemed like it was microwaved just a bit too long, it was dry, and maybe was a day old or so. Not going back and don't recommend.

Family friendly. Fried chicken, baked chicken, fried chicken livers, now, veggies, 2 soups, hush puppies, and deserts all on the Buffett for 8.99. 1/2 price for those 10 and under. We go once a week and the service is always GREAT! We are weekly regulars!!! Family owned and run. Seat yourself, never a wait. We love it!!!

The food is so good! They have a delicious buffet with their famous pork bbq. (Their dinner buffet starts at 5pm so get there at 4:45 and most likely it will out a little bit earlier) Homemade desserts just make the perfect meal complete! Family friendly as well!

My wife and I had heard nothing but good things about Brock's. We decided to give them a shot. Living in Powhatan, this was quite an investment of time to drive there, but well worth it. Our server, Kate, was wonderful. The buffet was very well stocked and kept clean. Now, onto the food. In short, it was wonderful. Very... More

Great pulled chicken. Wonderful smoked barbecue flavor. Very reasonably priced. Much better choice than all the fast food places at this exit.

Small family owned restaurant w good service and excellent food. Lunch or dinner, go for the buffet! You get to taste a variety of good food. The pulled Pork is delicious and does not even need a sauce to flavor it. Different food varieties throughout the week. #GuyFieri, when will you visit this great barbecue place?

The minced BBQ has great flavor with the right amount of natural smoke body. Is a classic Virginia (North Carolina) style meat accompanied by home style green beans, collard greens, stewed tomatoes, and world class cold slaw. I have tried BBQ throughout the south, often referred to as Dixie BBQ. You will wear your car out finding anything that matches... More

Went here tonight for the first time. I have heard a lot of good things about this place. We ordered brisket with baked potato and fried Oysters with fries and Mac and cheese. The food was not bad but it was nothing to say this was the best meal ever. They had a buffet but it looked dry or not... More

Family owned and operated (I met the owners in church), they have a great vinegary sauce that my step dad from Atlanta brought me up on. Not thick, not sweet...they have other sauces as well. They have jars to take home too
