$30 for a full rack. They will cut it up for you. Pricey, but very good.
Fantastic little BBQ joint for a quick, mouth watering, satiated sandwich!!! Best BBQ in the area!!! Great staff too!!! This is a MUST STOP... you won't be disappointed!!!
Ridiculously good BBQ. They only use locally available hardwoods in their smoker and cook it to perfection. Please give them a try if you are lucky enough to catch them still open. They will sell out on nice days.
A lot of food for the price! Great bbq, no fat chunks in the bbq!
Best sides ever: potato salad and cucumber salad(my favorite anywhere) and sweet slaw. Ribs were great and bbq is delicious. It is now my favorite takeout joint. I will make the drive again real soon.
Incredible - amazing food and service!! Definitely go to this place.
Awesome food at a great price.definitely would recommend a stop here.
Just like any barbecue place worth it’s weight I’m pork, this place is really unassuming. It’s in a tired old former gas station, but the food is far from tired. The portions are mammoth. (Two people can easily share the BBQ platter.) And it’s clear that everything is cooked with passion. You can tell these folks enjoy what they do. This is easily in my top three for best barbecue joints in Virginia.
Very good pulled pork but they pre add sauce and I prefer to add sauce myself. I'm of the opinion that the smoked pork should be able to stand on its own without sauce. I think theirs could so maybe give me that option? The place itself is a hoot. A few picnic tables outside but no inside seating.
Stopped by this place, great quick service and the Mac and cheese / BBQ is out of this world. My husband and I split a platter and couldn’t be happier 😋
Really interesting road side gem. They have delicious BBQ and great service. Counter service for togo food. There are a few outside picnic tables. Generous portions.
A great place to stop by. Very nice guys running it, the food is so so good and the portions are generous. You won’t wait long for your food and is worth the stop heading home.
Good food and great service
This place may not look like much on the outside but do yourself a FLAVOR and get in there! The smoke flavor in the pulled pork & the dry rub ribs are phenomenal. We consider ourselves BBQ snobs & Paulie's is amazing. Baked beans, cole slaw & mac and cheese didn't disappoint either! We will return!
Awesome ribs, one of the best pulled pork you can get...
Fresh and hot, always a great sign when they say something is sold out!!!
Driving through from out of state and this place was awesome!! Food was amazing and service was just as good, cant wait to go back!
Best sandwich after a great hike!
Best ever BBQ. It's 5 hours from Charlotte, but I stop every time during my travels whenever I'm within an hour
Excellent barbecue. Consistently well done.
The best bbq in the area. If you are brewery hopping and want some properly smoked ribs this is the place to go and much better than what some big establishments have. Hot bbq sauce is great on the ribs. Full rack cut is what you see below, snacked on them all weekend. Can’t wait to get some more.
We stop by every time we are in the area and never leave disappointed. The pork BBQ and all of the sides are awesome. Portion sizes are large. Make sure and try the mac and cheese!
Great food. Excellent flavor. Smoked on site.
Great food and service! The ribs are delicious
My favorite BBQ place ever, sells out often so call 1st. I have Been going here for years now and it's always the same. I consider the owner a friend and it's nice to see people out here that still make real FOOD that you can feel good about feeding your family with.
I came for bbq and left fat perfect
Best Damn BBQ I've Ever Had In My Almost 35 Years. I Loved Working In That Area Just To Go There On Break!!!
An awesome BBQ place
Ribs are fantastic...didn't even try the BBQ sauce (the highest compliment possible). Service was very friendly. Pricing is a little steep, but the value for what you get is still there.
This place is amazing, top notch bbq and delicious mac n cheese.
Everything is delicious. From the bbq pork sandwiches to the ribs, to the amazing smoked chicken. All of the sides are home made and delicious but the Mac and cheese is to die for. I've never had a bad meal and the portions are very large for what you pay. If you stop in once, you'll want to stop in every time you pass.
Well the ribs were sold out the day I went. But the pulled pork and chicken was good. Chicken with the BBQ sauce was very good. Sides were ok also
Best pulled pork this side of Memphis. This is a great place if you want great food, fast service, and an authentic atmosphere.I highly recommend the pulled pork platter, which features great pulled pork (of course) and a variety of sides in generous servings. The mac and cheese and the slaw were great.
May be the best bar-b-que in central Virginia!
Wow. First time at Paulie’s. Everything is simply a step above- barbecue, Mac and cheese and baked beans. Delicious!!
The food is delicious! Stopped here after a hike and we are so glad we did! We will be back 😁
Holy BBQ! Wonderful hole in the wall BBQ joint that also does catering. Portion sizes were outrageously large. Could do with less, personally. But the service was top notch, by the owner himself. Enjoyed conversation about Paulie's roots and learning more about the area. Can't recommend enough! But, if a small eater, try and split a meal.
Food was amazing, service was great. Awesome BBQ.
Delicious barbecue and smoked chicken. Unique sweet hot sauce perfect.
The food is yummy and hot. Best BBQ sandwich I've had and the Mac and cheese is definitely homemade.
Hands down the best bbq in the area. So happy I came across this place. I'll definitely will be going back.
When we drive three hours to the Blue Ridge Mountains, this is a must stop. Easily the best Virginia style barbecue to be found anywhere.This is a do-one-thing-and-do-it-well kind of place. Don't expect much variety. Just expect the best.
Oh my God!Hands down the best I have ever had in VA! Juicy, well seasoned pork (I don't eat pork regularly but this was the best time to catch a break!) The looks of this place are misleading. it is just a little shack in the middle of the road but I guarantee you. You will not regret to have stopped by. Get the BBQ Burger.
This is the perfect place to stop for barbecue! The cheesy picnic tables and slightly icky environs are the appropriate place for eating the most delicious pulled pork you’ll ever have! Very generous portions (I couldn’t finish mine) and delicious sides. You won’t regret stopping here.
A lil drive to get there, but worth it! Ask for slaw on the sandwich and use your sides for other good food. Me & my son agree the Mac n chz is awesome!! Paulie’s Granny’s Recipe!
Stumbled upon this Gem. You must stop when you are in the area. Even if you aren't in the area, get there :)
Awesome, esp the dry rubbed ribs dipped into his hot BBQ sauce.
A tad high on prices...but safe cooked food ... need to communicate more with customers.
Absolutely Fantastic!!! Some of the best barbecue I've ever had!! The staff Inside are super awesome and friendly. it's a small place that you might miss if you're driving too fast, so slow down as you come around the corner towards the restaurant. I had the pulled pork barbecue sandwich,(with macaroni cheese and the cucumber salad on the side, both of which were delicious) and it was so Smokey and delicious, and they've got the smoker going outside and the aroma is Simply Amazing. I love this place, it's cozy and the food is really great! Definitely worth stopping here! Yummy!!!
We were passing by on a trip.. the smell made us make a u turn quick.... Best BBQ I've ever had and the Ribs are amazing ..... Thanks Paulie's Pig Out. Keep doing what you do best 😉
Drove past all the time when visiting all the wineries and distilleries nearby and finally stopped in today. The outside isn't much. A little shack with a couple picnic tables outside, but dont let it fool you. The food and friendly staff are A++! The portions are huge, prices are fair, and the order comes out quick. And it's delicious! Definitely worth a stop along the road for lunch! Pulled pork sandwich with their spicy house sauce, was amazing!
