referred by local gas stop, we stopped by this easy to miss roadside find and did not regret, the smoker and a pile of logs lie not far from the front door, revealing this as a true barbeque spot and it does not disappoint. the pulled pork was tender, juicy, and flavorful, not really needing sauce but the sauce is excellent as well, a vinegar-based sauce that enhances the meat without overwhelming it, so many sauces are just too spicy and the smoked meat gets lost. the home made onion rings have a hint of cornmeal and are great compliment. my partner also enjoyed her homemade 'twisty chips", though they required a little extra salt. the hushpuppies were full of corn flavor and not too greasy though they might benefit from a little chopped onion and roasted bell peppers to add a little taste note. we were very pleased with food.
the family owned and run establishment is very homey and having just opened on March 26, they are still working out the kinks. the staff were all very nice and friendly. they reported business was going okay so far, everyone who came in during our stay were locals who seemed well known to the owners. the location of Virginia 198 about 1 mile east of route 3 is easily accessible to anyone traveling the "northern neck" region of Virginia. please take the short detour and enjoy this fledgling delight,
