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

We have tried Blue Rock two or three times. Always seems like a place that should be quick and good, it really isn't. We were there in the early evening this last weekend. Not many people in line to order so we thought it would...More

This is one of the best places to go for a BBQ sandwich. There pulled pork I think is the best in the area. The owner and everyone there is helpful and very friendly. They make you feel very comfortable. Just writing this review is...More
