While doing some research for an upcoming Virginia trip, I came across a very interesting restaurant called Cuz's Uptown Barbeque.  It looks eccentric to say the least and seemingly out of place in Southwest Virginia.  Here is a link to the website and a short film on the place.
 
Has anyone ever been here before?  I would love to hear from someone who has actually eaten there.

It's been a long time since I was there BB, as it's only about 45 minutes from where I live in Princeton, WV.  I had completely forgotten about them until you posted this.
 
It is called a Barbeque joint, but it is more sophisticated than what we are used to in a BBQ joint here (think the opposite of say The Ridgewood).  They do make their own BBQ, but I don't remember ever having it.  I do remember having some good Prime Rib they had on special one time there about 15 years ago.  Don't remember what I had the other times and it's been probably a good 10 years since I've been there.
 
They did have some tough times as there was a fire that had them closed for awhile.  They used to be only open for dinner too, don't know if that changed.

Thanks so much for the reply!  You are right that this sure doesn't look like the typical bbq joint.  I even read that the bbq might be the weakest part of the menu.
