Rocklands Review

This tiny branch of the popular local barbecue chain does mostly takeout business, but even when eaten with plastic silverware, the baby back ribs and smoked half chicken are still as tender as advertised. Disposable coolers are also sold here, perfect for filling up with corn bread and potato rolls and picnicking by the waterfront. Those who think that barbecue can never deliver a new taste will be humbled by the Pearl, a portable $6.49 stack of macaroni-and-cheese, tender barbecued pork, and baked beans that sounds excessive but hits the spot. Locations in Northern Virginia's Arlington and Alexandria neighborhoods are equally reliable.

    Rocklands Review

    Rocklands of Arlington Virginia. Bad food, terrible service, arrogant staff, unclean. One of the worst experiences in many of the restaurants. Restaurant has a peculiar smell, like some rotten stuuf. definitely wont recomend to anybody.The food was so fatty and low quality meats. The service was poor. It is expensive for the low quality they do deliver. RUDE ARROGANT NIGHT MANAGER. Next day I asked to speak to the manager I spoke to on the phone which. Odd, arrogant response Avoid at all costs.
    And I am local client from Arlington Virginia. Food and wine connoisseur.
