I visited Monk's BBQ last night for dinner. It's BBQ but nothing exceptional as BBQ. I enjoyed my visit, and will probably return at some point. I was most disappointed in the last of service, no hostess to seat and organize seating. You stand in...More

The food was fantastic, the beer was reasonably priced, and it had lots of covered seating outdoors.

This is a very popular hangout spot, but it doesn't do anything for me personally. Your first time there, it's not clear how you're suppose to order your food. The interior is kind of industrial feeling, with concrete floors and steel accents. It's loud inside,...More

We’ve only had the brisket but it’s very good. They have a bar and some nights they have live music. But it’s also family friendly. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. We go there often.

My son and I ate here last month. Took a bit to understand you have to step up to order from the counter. Food was tasty, but a very loud local hang out. Go here with friends for beers and barbecue.

All items tried were very good. Beans, slaw, ribs . Highly recommended from a picky eater. Great for families too.

This could have been a good meal but it fell short in a number of ways. I was here on a Friday night for dinner - there was a live band playing which was very entertaining and definitely added to the "BBQ Joint" ambiance. I...More

Don't recall seeing beef ribs there. As a BBQ hunter, I've had to learn to do it myself. I would check their menu and if they don't have them, look at Hill Country BBQ in DC. They have a good, albeit expensive, selection.

It is not. We got our start about 4 years doing general vending and catering. We opened our restaurant in Purcellville in April 2014.
