I had heard so much about this place when I first moved here to Fredericksburg. Being initially from Baltimore, and accustomed to the wonderful restaurants there, and being an excellent cook myself, I was used to food being good or better. Naturally, after hearing countless...More

Was in the mood for some barbecue and this place seemed to have the highest rating. Service was very friendly, but food was mediocre. I had ribs, my husband had pork plate. Nothing tasted very smoky. Nothing was especially good. Do not recommend.

Not a fancy place, but really good pulled pork! All the best meat, no gristle or tendons like you get occasionally.

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.
