Would I go back again? If I was in the area, probably....or I might just try another spot. The BBQ was VG, disappointing portion size. I had a combo platter pork and brisket.(See pic) The rib was from my fathers plate. You can compare the portion size in the pic to the small sides bowls. I received a very small... More

This was I think the best BBQ I have ever eaten. The ribs were perfectly flavored and fall off the bone tender! The chicken wings were tender and moist and the beef brisket was very good. I had the collard greens and Brunswick stew as my side orders. The greens were cooked perfectly and packed with flavor. Picked up some... More

We visited Fox Bros BBQ at the recommendation of a friend. I went for their take on a burger with fries. It was really good. Full of flavour and not perhaps as heavy as it may sound. Would definitely return ... Price was really good as well.

Good Lord in Heaven above!! Rarely does a restaurant live up to its hype, especially when it's one lie this one. I've seen them on Food Network and have had dozens of friends recommend this place, so why not try it, right? We got there early for lunch to avoid the crowd and were seated right away. We looked at... More

Went with family and friends for dinner. Waited one and half hours for a table in overcast conditions. After the wait, we were seated outside. We questioned the server about the potential for rain and not really wanting to sit there. She assured us the weather report said it was all good. We started to order our drinks and then... More

How do they make taters taste so amazing? Fox Bros makes amazing food, even down to their side dishes. I had the combo plate with the brisket and chicken. It was very tasty, soft melt in your mouth food. I also tried their Brunswick chili. I was surprised by the sweet taste and the generous portions of brisket in the... More

I've eaten meals from this restaurant 4 times, today was my 5th. I thought that my chicken was undercooked but the owner disagreed and decided to give me a lesson in how he cooks Smoked Chicken. Once again, this was my 5th experience. His words, "...so you're telling me that of all the 25 chickens I've cooked today, this one... More

We enjoyed the ribs and chicken wings were amazing. Sides were great as well but be sure to leave room for dessert chocolate pecan pie. Yummy!!!

Friendly staff, casual setting, inside/outside dining. The barbecue here is great- we each had the combo plate, I highly recommend the brisket as well as the pulled pork. The ribs were tender and flavorful. Another highlight was the quality of the side dishes- great mac and cheese and collard greens. Don't forget to start with an order of the best-ever... More
