    we always bring our friends here for weekend brunch. it's a good value and good enough bbq the last few times, they have been overwhelmed and the service was slow. okay. this weekend it wasn't busy at all and the service was very slow. We had to literally flag down other staff to find our server multiple times + the food was sub par. the servings are appropriately sized, but the pork was dry and for the second time ribs were not well prepared and the dessert pudding was actually a runny liquid. we will try it again - every food business is struggling now and has ups and downs, but if it remains consistently disappointing, we will start looking for a new place to treat our friends.

    Great outdoor patio with good service. Beer selection was good. But both my wife and I thought the food was mediocre. Brisket was great, pulled pork was good, pig belly was not to our taste at all. We had 4 different sides and we were 50/50 on those. We may try it again, but we’ll probably get sandwiches and stick with staples next time.

    My husband and I eat out frequently - with no kids at home, and dual incomes, we have that luxury. Once a week (sometimes more) we'll try places we have not been before to see if we want to add them to our regular rotation. Sadly Liberty Barbecue did not make the cut. The service was friendly enough, the server came quickly and took our drink orders. My husband ordered the sazerac, and I ordered a bourbon-and-fig thing. Neither drink was super sweet, which is a huge plus in my book, but when a two-ounce drink is served in a 12-ounce glass.... Well, it left us feeling a little ripped off. We order cocktails regularly when we go out, including in New York City. This is the first time I felt like I didn't get what I paid for. When the drinks arrived, our server took our appetizer and meal orders. The appetizer (hush puppies) came out quickly and were too hot to eat. They were supposed to be "jalapeno and cheddar" but neither flavor presented itself. The dressing that accompanied them was what might have been a homemade ranch. It was fine, but not a great match for the hush puppies. After we finished our app, the meals took another twenty minutes to come out (probably not the server's fault), and included the wrong side (definitely the server's responsibility). The food itself was just... meh. I got the fried chicken sandwich and it was straight-up bland. My husband got the two-meat platter and said the pulled pork was cooked to death, and the sausage included an herb he simply did not care for. I do not eat pork, but it smelled to me like juniper which, if you're using it, must be used SPARINGLY. My assumption is that LB doesn't make their own sausage, so I have to wonder if anyone in the kitchen has actually tasted it. The place is quite open and feels rustic. We ate indoors because it was a cool evening, and the outdoor space is on the edge of a parking lot. Indoors was loud, for sure. But we are in our 50s, so take that for what it is.

    We shared the following this visit: 1/2 pound lean brisket, small potato salad, small cole slaw, small navy beans, and the corn muffins. This was more than enough for two people! As it was on a Friday night, things were hopping and by the time we left it was pretty loud. Food is really good, and potions are quite generous. Parking lot can be a bit of a hassle, but worth it!

    Love this place but had terrible service. Our brunch waitress was clueless. Our first round of small plates took forever. I noticed her having multiple issues with the wireless ordering device but she could have notified us of the delay. We ordered Shrimp and grits and it came with no shrimp? We ordered cheesy scrambled eggs they came with no cheese? Multiple items were missing that we ordered. The bbq though is always tasty which make up for some of the rocky service.

    It had been a while since I was last at Liberty BBQ, due to the pandemic. It was a releive to finally get back and findout that the food was just as outstanding as it was 2 years ago when I last visited. It's the Char Shui style pork belly that makes it worth the trip. The pork belly has a beautiful and deep Chinese 5 spice flavor to it. It's my go to as well as the brisket. The other items that I enjoy is the brisket chili, and the mac and cheese. I love the creaminess of the mac and cheese, and the fact they use 3 different cheeses, takes it up a notgh. Let's not forget dessert, and I'm a fool for all things banan pudding. Libety makes an excellent butterscotch banana pudding that is very satifying to the palette. Don't miss out on this one BBQ joints. One of the best in the DMV area.

    The service initially was disorganized; we sat for 15 minutes without anyone taking our order. When we asked the first server to come near our table, she seemed to imply someone else should have taken our table, but she said she would help us. After that, the service was very good, though it took some time for the food to come out.

    Love every time we come. Very family friendly and everyone is always so nice and helpful. The food is great too! Also love that they changed it to small plates for brunch because of COVID it’s way better and safer, which is the main reason we came since everyone isn’t touching the handles of utensils if it were self serve buffet style again.

    Our family of four went on a Friday night and sat outside. It was very family friendly with our families around. We had great drinks and ordered lots of food. We liked it overall but felt most of it was too salty. We decided we like the variety of brunch better.
