Tried the brisket and pulled pork, both were delicious. They had tons of flavor and we're very moist. The sides were also very good as well as the lemon cake for dessert. Definitely worth a side stop when heading up or down 95 near Stafford off RT 1.

Taking one look at this place from the road and you may not have the highest expectations. Taking one bite of their food and those preconceived notions are shattered. The best barbecue I’ve had in Virginia. Stopped in driving back to Petersburg from Manassas and wanted something to eat. Got their pulled pork sandwich with fries and s ... read more

Hidden gem in Stafford where chain restaurants are everywhere. Yummy home cooked BBQ with EXCELLENT sauces! We had the pulled pork sandwich and it was juicy and super flavorful. Generous portion- we ended up splitting 1 along with baby back rib platter. The ribs were SO Good- meat was super tender and no sauce needed for us! Fries we ... read more

I picked up the smoked wings and my wife enjoyed them and she wants me to pick up some more. I had the cabbage and it was okay.

If I could give 10 stars for this place I would! This by far is the best bbq that we've had in Virginia (and the sides and dessert were simply amazing). You know the food is good when you do a food dance while you're eating it - lol. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for amazing bbq and sides!

First time ordering BBQ here in Virginia and we were not disappointed. As the daughter of a family who owns a BBQ restaurant back home in TX, I was skeptical about trying the brisket. It was very delicious! We ordered brisket, pulled pork, red beans & rice, & mac n cheese. It was a plus that the stag was extremely friendly. Would def ... read more

Brisket was delicious! The owner came out to check on us - it was nice to meet him! I do agree with other comments that they could use a tv or radio for some background noise - it was awkwardly quiet.

I love ribs. The ribs here are very thick, meaty and great! Our family averages a meal from here every week. As long as they keep cooking, I'll keep coming!

If you want authentic barbecue ribs, this is where you can get them. The barbecue ribs are so good, they do not require any barbecue sauce. This Is my go-to place to purchase my family dinners  as well as large get-together! No other place compares!

The brisket was so delicious and cooked to perfection and their jambalaya was so flavorful. I love their bbq sauces. My favourite is the habenero BBQ sauce.

We ate here for lunch today. I had a pork and brisket plate with green beans and red beans/rice.

Pulled pork was excellent that I would have to give a 5 star. The peach cobbler is what makes them lose a star. It's not bad it's just not as good as I have had from other places. It just taste like it's missing something.
