Food was excellent, will definitely return next time I am in Falls Church
Nice, good food, good service.
Good food, good atmosphere. First time visiting
Loved meeting friends here - clean restaurant and excellent food (though one guest had an icky pudding). Tried deviled eggs and was so impressed!
We had a delicious family birthday celebration and appreciated the great food & service. Thank you!
Looking for great BBQ and fried chicken? Come here! Really great food, nice outside seating available.
I would give them five stars except for two disappointing things: 1. Please cut up the greens a bit more. Your should not serve it as whole leaf that must be eaten like spaghetti, and 2. What bbq joint runs out of brisket, on a national holiday, before 6 pm? Otherwise food was excellent, service was really great, I mean your servers rock! And the ambiance was downright festive. I would give the extra star if you had the brisket, that really disappointed me.
The customer service was atrocious at this location of Liberty BBQ. Food took almost an hour to be served after ordering and the location wasn’t even at full capacity! We had 4 different “servers” approach our table asking the same questions about orders whether it was what we wanted for food or to drink even after ordering. Server tried to have us pay without showing us what we were paying for in the first place… that struck me as odd and I asked to see what we were paying for and we were met with resistance on having a copy of what we had on our ticket.
Food was just okay. They were out of brisket which was disappointing. They may have been under staffed as it was Memorial Day but again the food was just okay. When we finally did get service everyone was very nice but it took a good amount of time just to get our order.
A little bummed they were out of brisket, but everything else was phenomenal!
Went on Memorial Day, after discovering Mission BBQ was closed for the holiday. Having been to Liberty Tavern and Lyon Hall we thought this place would be of equal quality.
W R O N G!
Brisket was dry, sides were bland;Mac-n-cheese was a joke! The manager comp’d the meal. Don’t waste your time or money here.
Fantastic barbecue, especially their brisket, and a well-rounded list of delicious side dishes (I'm particularly a big fan of their roasted cauliflower). Staff is always nice and welcoming. One of my favorite places to dine.
We had the Saturday special fried chicken which was delicious - the sides -Mac and cheese, beans, and cucumber salad- weren’t as strong. I was surprised given the quality of Liberty Tavern and Lyon Hall. The service was also spotty but we were there between shifts.
Fortunately for us Liberty BBQ is in walking distance of our house. We were taking friends from Arlington and DC to experience it for first time - had the Triple Platter and Whole Bird Fried Chicken so everyone could taste everything. Agreement was that while BBQ and biscuits were good, the fried chicken was great.
The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items. He recommended some of his favorites and they were delicious. The bottomless brunch was a great value and the space was clean and open.
Great way to do the Sunday Buffet safely.... we loved trying different plates and sharing. Great atmosphere as always.... sat outside. Great service. We love Liberty BBQ. Amazing Sunday Brunch!
Amazing food and service and the patio area is great
Their LB Manhattan is very good. The pickle brined fried chicken is delicious and crispy. Sat outside on a beautiful evening. It was 6:00 PM and sunny. They have good shade so it was pleasant. Good service. Quick service. We were happy.
No One You Know band was playing.
Service and food were great!!!!!
Very nice experience!!!!!
Everything was excellent. Exceeded our expectations.
The food was great and the patio area is very nice. I plan to return.
We came to see the band and had a little table on the patio. Service and food were both excellent!
great service and food as always. would recommend to anyone
Had exactly the type of outdoor dining I was looking for. Well spaced tables, covered but open air. Perfect. Service was prompt and very friendly. Brisket was delish. Tried a few sides and all were flavorful. Overall good experience and we will be back again!
Fabulous outdoor dining area! Fantastic food and the butterscotch banana pudding is to die for!
I was a bit disappointed given the raving reviews I had read. We ordered nachos no meat, and two 2-meat platters. The nachos were good but not great, greasy and the cheese was cheese sauce and not actual cheese. My meat platter was pulled chicken, pork belly, crispy Brussels sprouts and tomato & cucumber salad. The pulled chicken was very good, the pork belly was OK. The Brussels sprouts were tasty but not crispy at all as announced, the salad was passable. My dining companion ordered lean brisket which was good but not great, sweet potato fries which were excellent, and crispy Brussels sprouts. The Smoke by the River cocktail was very interesting. Service was alright. Not a bad joint, but not the great BBQ place I was expecting, and prices were a bit high for the type of food and service. The outdoor dining space is great.
The food was delicious and priced well, but we had to wait 20 minutes past our reservation time to be seated despite the fact that there were multiple open tables. The manager provided a complementary dessert as an apology, but it was still frustrating. After being seated, our drinks arrived after our food and we also had to get our own bbq sauce and silverware from other tables as the table we were seated at didn’t have silverware or sauce and none was brought with our food. It was also a bit chilly outside, but the space heaters were not turned on until requested by a nearby table. Overall, the food outweighs the negatives in the experience and I would give Liberty a second shot. I’m hoping that that was just a particularly disorganized night that’s not reflective of a normal experience.
Had a wonderful afternoon into evening outside, listening to the cool band Jehovah's Favorite Choir. Excellent service, delicious food, and a peaceful atmosphere with multiple friends made for a perfect outing!
Delicious barbecue place with a really nice rustic interior and good layout. Nachos appetizer was fantastic with the pulled pork and the brisket was also very good. Sweet and tangy BBQ sauce was also very good!
Nice outdoor space. Delicious and creative cocktails. Lovely service.
The food was great, the drink selection was good and the background music was fire.
Love this place! Great food and staff! Love that I can make a reservation too! It’s awesome!
Meeting a friend from out of town.
Excellent ribs, excellent ribs, excellent ribs, should be a nice place to eat outside
I love coming here with friends as the food is delicious and service is A+. Also, the food prices are extremely reasonable.
The double brisket portion was 3 small strips, with lots of fat.
Pork sandwhich needed a little flavor but Mac and cheese was SO good
Amazing taste, fun ambiance; perfect hygiene and safety precautions; fantastic server, Samantha. Also the food runners were so prompt at courteous bringing a couple of additional condiments that we needed.
First time we went and loved it. We will be back for sure.
Our server was friendly and attentive. Amazing food. A must go for anyone in the dc area.
