Allman's Bar-B-Que in Fredericksburg, VA

Allman's Bar-B-Q in Fredericksburg, VA It is a local institution! Right up your alley, a bit of a dive, but awesome food. The best Bar-B-Q around. Its been in business for years and years. Before we were married, my husband brought me to his hometown (Fredericksburg), and the first place we had to eat at was Allman's. Its near Mary Washington College, so you get the college crowd mixed with the good ole country people and the commuters who drive into DC. You have to check this place out!

    Allman’s bar-b-q in historic Fredericksburg, Virginia. My great grandf Allman’s bar-b-q in historic Fredericksburg, Virginia. My great grandfather started this restaurant in 1954. My grandfather worked there until his retirement in 1985. I can remember going there as a kid and hating the bbq. “Mom” (the cook) as everyone called her would always make me a hotdog that was sliced and fried and fit perfectly on a hamburger bun. As I grew older I learned to enjoy the bbq. “Mom” worked there until she was not able due to her health. She devoted her life to that restaurant. Her daughter Lucille worked there also. At the age of 16 I got a summer job there. I enjoyed meeting the people and hearing the stories of my grandfather. I got to know the regulars. Allman’s always kept it simple. The pit cooked Bbq, slaw, and fries and of course you can’t forget the sauce. The restaurant is still the original and you can see all the history when you visit. They have changed hands several time and my grandfather and “mom” are not with us anymore but the restaurant still remains the same. Same great food and same great folks who visit. If you happen to find yourself in Fredericksburg, Virginia stop in, meet the locals and enjoy the best bbq ever! Oh and my grandfather is the one on the wall in the Redskin jacket.
