Rocklands and Annettes BBQ Heaven are both great, but if youre willing to drive about 20-25 minutes out to Woodbridge, youll find that Dixie Bones is even better. Plus, the atmosphere and presentation feel much more authentically Southern than most of our closer-in BBQ options. The ribs are powerfully smokey, the chopped meats are wonderful, and the cornbread is the very best cornbread that weve ever had. I used to think Flavors had pretty good cornbread (I like mine dense, moist and cakey), but Dixie Bones cornbread is at a level of excellence that I did not think possible.
They also have four housemade barbecue sauces, though in all honesty, the meats hardly require their deployment.
Among the sides, the only disappointment was the mac n cheese. Cabbage and collard greens are winners, even the liquor from the veggies is worth sopping up.
And the pecan pie offers the most effective use of toasted pecans ever.
