Started going here when my boy started at nearby Virginia Tech. Good rub on the ribs, love the pulled pork. Small seating area with some local talent playing on occasion. Serve their food up with pride, always worth stopping in.

This is the second time I've tried ribs here. Not worth it. Sorry. Burnt ends of the bones and very dry meat. Maybe the forgotten rib from the day before. Had a lot better ribs at a chain last week for less money. Different day, same results.

Good service, tasty food, reasonable price, what more could you ask for? Now they have outside tables as well, it was a bit crowded before inside.

Shady little shack and I could have made better BBQ myself. Also very over priced for the little amount you get.

Decided to try even though I knew it was the sister restaurant to Fatback Soul Shack which I tried the night before and found unimpressive. Due South fared a little better. I ordered the half rack of ribs, cole slaw, and hush puppies and with tax the price was just over $18 - a little pricey. Overall the ribs were... More

I love barbecue but I'm very picky. Their prices are a bit ridiculous and every time I eat there the burnt taste stays in my mouth for hours. Haven't been there in several months and not sure I'll even go back, but on a positive note I do like their sweet potato casserole

Called in an order to go and it was ready when we arrived. Good pulled pork, excellent sides and they were nice when we went in to pick it all up.

This is my second time eating here. I'm just not super impressed with this place. This time I had the Jumbo Pulled Pork sandwich, baked beans, Mac & cheese and hush puppies. Some of the pork was so burnt you could not chew it, Mac and cheese was average at best, baked beans were not good and the hush puppies... More

A lot of these bbq places have popped up around the south (or old dives have been rebuilt) and they all follow the same script. This one is just average. Sauces were okay but did not stand out. Place lacked soul frankly. Chicken was smoked and then fried like in a turkey fryer and was a standout. Hush puppies and... More
