My friends and I ate here on the recommendation of another friend. It was great tasting BBQ, but the portion sizes were really small for a BBQ joint. Recommendation. Try the Bacon on a stick. It's awesome.

Went with the family after visiting one of the vineyards nearby. The mac and cheese was great. Had some pull chicken with it. The meat was tender and moist. Prices are very affordable and place had country live music (on a Saturday). Great spot to...More

Favorites? We like the brisket, although I usually ask for some of the fat to be removed. The baked beans are good (standard canned beans, but they add to them... meat, for example). The smoked gouda mac and cheese is yummy... yep, I wrote yummy....More

We have been here a few times and it never disappoints. I personally like the ribs and the cornbread. I get it everytime. They also have live music on the weekends.

We decided to try Monk's for carry out. Fantastic food. We had a pound of pulled pork, stuffed cabbage rolls and the greens. It was all delicious. The stuffed cabbage was excellent, next time will ask for more of the smoked tomato sauce.

Monk's is a classic very casual bar restaurant with excellent "Q" and side dishes. A great place for kids.

Monk's BBQ is the best ribs I've had in a long time. The mac and cheese is a great addition. Interesting selection of beers.

Five of us ate lunch here after getting our Christmas tree. The sides (mashed garlic potatoes, baked beans, corn bread, smoked Gouda macaroni and cheese) were terrific! Each of us received very generous portions of our respective barbecued meat - and they were all done...More

Don't recall seeing beef ribs there. As a BBQ hunter, I've had to learn to do it myself. I would check their menu and if they don't have them, look at Hill Country BBQ in DC. They have a good, albeit expensive, selection.

It is not. We got our start about 4 years doing general vending and catering. We opened our restaurant in Purcellville in April 2014.
