BBQ Snob review of King's BBQ in Petersburg Va
King's BBQ Has been around since 1946. The only good memories I have about Petersburg Va is King's. It has been over 30 years since I visit King's. I now know why , I start cooking BBQ the traditional way. As I enter the place at 2 pm it was somewhat busy. I found a booth and sat down!. I could smell the sweet wisp of smoke traveling from the kitchen.
Shortly after I sat down , a waitress right out of "Mels Dinner" called me hun! You gotta love that!
I order the large plate of "Q" chopped with fries , slaw and micro bisquits!
I also ordered Sweet Tea! I drove the waitress crazy because I went through about 10 glasses! I only waited about 10 minutes. In the background you can hear some one chopping pork. I saw my waitress come out of the kitchen and went to the chopping place. The guy scooped up a large portion of pork and placed it on my plate! "from the cooker to chopping board to my plate!" Yum!
The meal was a great trip down memory row. My Grandfather was a great influence in my life , especially in food.I remember him taking me here!
The food was awesome, sauce was good! I love the rolls and slaw. the apple pie was the bomb!It was great to come back! I will make sure it not 30 years before my next visit.
