NOVA BBQ?

  • 5

Getting to be that time of year - any good places (roadside?) in NOVA - I-66 or VA 267??

  1. Um. And should we bring up the topics of Pizza, Religion and Politics?

    Generally - most likely - no. But - you should give your preference (NC vs TX vs KC, etc.)

    Quick so as to not flame - The little Joe's wagon South on 29 near Gainesville does okay pulled pork and GREAT beans.

    Otherwise Williards near 28/66 for beef products (not pork or chicken).

      I'll second Jammin' Joes BBQ on 29! It's not great, but it's generally good.

      I'll have to try the beef at Willards. My coworkers drag me there from time to time and for some reason I keep trying the pork, only to be dismally disappointed!

        Yeah, the burnt ends and brisket are both decent enough to get by. Note that you can swap out the cornbread for a different side if you want.

          Willard's is not roadside, and I don't recommend it for 'getting by.' For getting by I recommend the eastern- NC BBQ at Harris Teeter in the small black plastic trays near the prepared foods counter. It is made in NC.

      2. Try the ribs or pulled pork from the Pit Stop at Gilberts Corner near Aldie -- intersection of US 50 and US 15. They post on facebook so you don't have to be surprised by their absence on some weekends.
