Grandpa Eddie's serves up saucy specialties influenced by several of the nation's barbecue capitals. Owner Carey Friedman calls on his own experience in Texas and throughout the south, as well as his Grandpa Eddie's time-honored recipes from Alabama and Kansas City. The result is a menu of classic southern cooking that has gained notoriety since the IBCA State Championship chicken ($15.99), half a smoked chicken, won Virginia-wide recognition and had a brief stint as a Hollywood celebrity. Prepare for a cross-country culinary excursion with an okra basket opener ($5.99) or a slice of peanut butter pie ($5.99), which Grandpa Eddie suggests you eat before your meal. Come dinnertime, try the Texas style beef brisket sandwich ($8.99), slow smoked and snuggled inside a toasted roll with Grandpa Eddie's Birmingham BBQ sauce. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Guiness are both on tap to give spicy sauce a spirited chase. If you can finish your dinner, try another dessert: the doughnut sundae, a warm glazed doughnut topped with French Vanilla ice cream ($3.99).
