The Virginia Barbecue Company Restaurant Review: If need be, drop all other barbecue plans and head straight for this quirky little place, set up in an old wood-frame house. It’s a casual setting, with the seductive allure of wood-smoked pulled pork barbecue being readied out back. By all means, order one of the sandwiches (two is a better idea, and make those jumbos), for this pork is dotted with fire-blackened crunch and has smoky flavor. Also available: Texas barbecue beef brisket and classic N.C. pork barbecue with Champagne vinegar. Among side dishes, we suggest the potato salad starring fried potatoes tossed with a perky dressing and sweetish baked beans. Even the brownies are made in-house, so don’t skimp when it comes to dessert. There’s a related outpost in Lakeside and multiple franchises.
