Sometimes it's those little hole-in-the-wall places that are the best. We've found a few here and there. Glad it turned out to be good!


He'd probably say... did you see any wood piles around, smell any smoke.... then it might be the real deal. I'm sure he can enlighten you on a few signs to look for.


Well, there very well could have been a smoker out back; there was a lot of junk back there. It was dark, and we were trying to get around all the mud holes so I'm not sure if a woodpile was part of the scene. Our waiter did describe how the meat was taken out of the smoker and pulled. So, that's something to go on. But I wouldn't want to send John on a wild-pig chase only to find out it's not the real thing. :)


Sounds real to me. I'd like to try it! How about tonight? Oh. Guess it's too far for tonight. I'l have to put it on my list of places to go when I come see you again.


Yum! I love BBQ! A realtor suggested BBQ at a place that has a little stand in a gas station store! We tried it the other was delicious! I love a good pulled pork BBQ sandwich with cole slaw. Glad you had a good outing together! We move in on Thursday! YAY!

I'm gaining some fame! ... I do have some experience with Log Cabin. One was when I first moved to VA (two weeks before the wife did), and the other ... I believe that they catered a couple of events that I attended. That equals one take-out and some events catered 30 to 40 minutes away. It wasn't bad, but it didn't impress me enough to go back of my own accord; I have returned to the higher-end competitor down the road, mentioned in your link. (I've had excellent catered BBQ in past lives.)

That being said, I'm not sure that my experiences are fair enough for a review. Since then, I know they've added onto the Log Cabin (with the non-log addition), so they must be doing something right -- even if they made it less of a hole-in-the-wall.

Even if I hadn't been to the restauarant, don't be ashamed if you lead me on a wild pig chase. That's part of the fun!

Sounds delicious! I miss being able to go pick me up a "NC style" BBQ sandwich! Whenever we go to visit my parents we always get some!


I can only HOPE that ya'll had the NC style of did, didn't you???? :)-


You made my mouth water :)


Sounds like it was YUMMY!

Pretty funny about Tom being your guinea pig!!


I came to your blog via a comment you left for my sister and boy - did you ever make me hungry! Sounds like the kind of place I like to try.


Thanks everyone for the comments.

Courtney - of course! NC style it was for me, but Mr G likes tomato based stuff.

John, thanks for the input on your experiences. Tom wondered when I read your comment out to him if you had settled on THE best of the best in Va yet from all your travels?

Pam, nice to have a first-time commenter stop by! Thanks for visiting.

Deb, sometimes the "dumpiest" looking places have the best food! I am a bbq lover so I just might have to take a little ride out that way one day! Mmmm:)


Sounds like the kind of place my husband would love. He and a buddy take weekend trips all over Texas just to check out and rate BBQ joints. If the door is barely hanging on the hinges and there's inch-thick grease coating the walls, they give it a high mark for "atmosphere." (The food better be good, too!)
