Help! A friend wants to meet at Famous Daves in VA Thu, 10/11/07 5:03 PM (permalink)
Woodbridge, Virginia, that is. I went to another Dave's once and thought it was terrible. Can anyone recommend excellent Northern Virginia BBQ within, say, 20 miles of Woodbridge? I'd stretch and go to the Mighty Midget in Leesburg, but they aren't open late...I couldn't stand eating bad BBQ knowing that someone, somewhere, knows where the real deal is.

Thanks!

    If all else fails, get the burger. Apparently, it is very good.

          I believe you meant to say, plead sanity....

            Sometimes the meal can be insignificant, just enjoy the Friendship.

                Jim is correct! While we love a good meal, it's the friendship and fellowship that is lasting.

                    Please do let us know how it went. The place is on the smaller side and can get crowded, but it is still miles ahead of Famous Dave's. Good luck!

                      Without a doubt - Dixiebones - best BBQ north of NC.

                        too funny!

                        actually , I thought their brisket was surprisingly decent. ( for a chain)
                        and they had some good tasting cocktail concoctions..
                        I had the roast chicken there once, but it was real bland...

                        wish they had beef ribs, though..

                          Wise words, but...



                          or bad BBQ.

                            Hey, Famous Dave's ain't too bad.....Go and dip french fries in all six rib sauce selections. Try the "Devil's Spit"...or put that on anything they serve!
