Super Authentic Barbecue in Woodbridge: Dixie Bones

AC | Feb 24, 2006 02:59 PM

Rocklands and Annette’s BBQ Heaven are both great, but if you’re willing to drive about 20-25 minutes out to Woodbridge, you’ll 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 we’ve 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.
