Had lunch with daughter who is attending UMW and had a wonderful lunch. Portions sizes are big and took some home for later. Eat in dining is limited to about 30-35 people and it can get a bit crowded...but worth the wait.

SC BBQ snob review. The pulled/minced pork here is pretty good. Not as smokey as SC bbq but moist. The sauce served at the table/not on the meat is a little weird but ok.

I read about Allman's BBQ in Southern Living magazine while visiting family in Richmond, VA. It was worth the side trip off of I-95 for wonderful smoked pit bbq. I had the pulled pork sandwich with slaw and hush puppies as sides. Delicious! I definitely want to stop again.
