BBQ Country was first established to fill a need for great barbecue in Warrenton. Townsfolk had often had a craving for barbecue, and it wasn't until BBQ Country was established that the craving began to be satiated. What the town didn't expect though, was how good the barbecue was. Tender ribs that fell off the bone, coupled with cuts of brisket that melted in the mouth were only accented by variety of sauces that ranged from subtle to in-your-face. Barbeque Country quickly rose to the only place you would ever want to get barbecue.

Here, we stick to tradition and employ tried and tested methods. Everything is made fresh daily and prepared in front of the customer. Our meat is cooked on a genuine open pit with hardwood, sometimes taking up to 18 hours to reach perfection. In that time, the wonderful smell of cooking meats fills our restaurant and starts to leak out into the surrounding neighbor hood. Several travelers have reported driving past, only to turn back when hit with delicious aromas.

"Don't get me wrong they were still good, just not corn muffins."
"If you like ribs or pulled pork though, that would be a mistake."
"Loved the beef brisket!"

The charm...Five easy to pass by truck stop restaurant where you'll find kids in soccer clothes, men in dress shirts and ties, guys in camo clothing, and folks like me...non local person traveling from the airport to Charlottesville looking for a good meal. The food...Four stars. Good pork...good beef...nice sized portions. Definitely worth the stop! But BBQ Country folks, it's really time for some detailed cleaning.

First off I wanna say that the friendly service from the two guys behind the counter was a nice surprise. More restaurants need friendly service like this. Some of the best BBQ I've had in a long time! I got the half rack 'o ribs with the spicy sauce and all I can say is I could get pretty big if I hung around here long enough lol. You can tell these guys smoke everything super low 'n slow without trying any of the 'shortcuts' that you might see at some of the bigger BBQ joints. The greens were also very good. If I had to nitpick on something it would be the "corn muffins" I am a big fan of southern cornbread, corn muffins, ect. I'm not a fan of the northern style cornbread that is made with a lot of white flour and is almost cake like. That is what these were. In fact, they weren't even yellow in color. I don't think they contained any cornmeal at all. Don't get me wrong they were still good, just not corn muffins. If you are traveling through the area definitely don't pass this place up. Very good food and lots of truck parking.

pulled pork is very good. potato salad was good also. Cole slaw was not tasty but was edible. I would recommend stopping if your driving by. I will definitely stop in the future. also the service was really good, very friendly and courteous.

Best ribs and chicken I've ever had!!!

Went driving out into the DC suburbs looking for passable roadside barbecue and stumbled on this place. Have to admit, I hesitated before going inside; located in a run-down truck stop on U.S. 29, it's not the most alluring restaurant ever. If you want decor, go elsewhere. If you want great barbecue, stay. The ribs are the best I've had in the DC region, moist with terrific bark and spicy sauce on the side. I look forward to trying the chicken next time; it's won national awards.

Even though we took some time responding, we want to say thanks for a great review, Alex! There's nothing better than hearing our ribs were the best you've tasted around DC, and we hope the chicken had five-star flavor when you stopped by to try them. Come see us again soon. -Dennis and Janet, Owners
