We have been to County Grill a few times, and each time both the service and the food has been outstanding. We drive 45 minutes to experience such delicious food. The combination platters are so large that they are enough food for both my husband and myself. It is definitely one of the best BBQ and Smokehouse restaurants we have... More

We love county grill. We order out a lot from them. Generous portions and a local place. Plenty of beer on tap as well. The BBQ plates are very generous and prices are fair. The wait staff are super friendly and they are military friendly.

Dropped in 15 mins before the kitchen closed on Christmas night & ordered 3 meals. The corn bread is delightful & I was looking forward to the St Louis ribs but they were out. The batter fried pork chop was good but needed seasoning. The greens were fabulous & so was the service. Stephen (waiter) was awesome, with only one... More

This place offers the best BBQ in this region and a really good beer selection. Most of it is bottled but a good selection none the less. I recommend the house ale on tap. County Red I believe it was called. Good luck!

The barbecue comes out unsauced with at least 6 types of sauce at the table. This let's you choose and find your favorite. Portions were decent size for the price but it's a little more expensive than it needs to be for this type of food. Good brisket which is hard to find on the east coast.

The pulled pork shoulder was delicious and the selection of house-made sauce was great, too. The sleeper was the warm potato salad! Don't let the name fool you. This dish was waaaay under-marketed. It's like a stuffed baked potato, only way better. I also had black eyed peas that were above average. My colleague had the BBQ meat loaf and... More

We are back visiting Hampton and this was the first restaurant we visited - went for dinner on a Friday night and surprisingly it was not crowded at all...a far cry from visiting at lunch which we did on previous visits. This time I had one of their combo platters (ribs, brisket and half a chicken) and I was able... More
