This place is decent, not exceptional. The food was good and tasty, I especially liked their cole slaw.

We stopped here on our way through town. A real throw back, in a good way. Overflowing plate of barbeque chicken and onion rings. The food was very good, service friendly and atmosphere authentic. A nice find.

I made a spur of the moment decision to go to Allman's and order the Family Pack for a recent family celebration. The food was excellent and the takeout service quick and efficient.

While taking in some of the historical sites of Fredericksburg we also wanted to try some good Virginia Barbecue. We made sure we arrived after 3:00 pm so we could get the ribs. My wife and I ordered the full rack of ribs, which came...More
