The Virginia Barbecue Company Restaurant Review

: If your family feuds about tomato versus vinegar-based, head straight for this quirky little place, set up in a century-old wood-frame house, because ’cue is offered here both North Carolina style (the latter) and Virginia (the former). It’s a casual setting that squeals homespun Americana. Step up to the counter to 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 St. Louis style ribs. Among side dishes, we suggest the potato salad starring roasted red potatoes tossed with a perky dressing and sweetish baked beans. Brownies are made in-house, so don’t skimp when it comes to dessert. There’s a related outpost in Lakeside and multiple franchises.
