  1. A nondescript little place in a truck stop in Opal, just south of Warrenton on US15. The menu had beef, ribs, chicken, sausage & pork (both plates and sandwiches). I'm not sure if they are known for one type of bbq, so I got a chopped pork plate with fries and collard greens. They gave me a side of the "spicy" bbq sauce. The sauce was a thicker, tangy bbq sauce with only a slight kick to it. I think the plate was $10 or so. The pork shoulder was being held in a hotbox and was unwrapped when I ordered. The pork was dry which was unexpected based on the amount of moisture/fat there seemed to be when they were unwrapping it. It had a good smoke to it but the dryness was tough to work through. I mixed in a little of the bbq sauce which helped provide some moisture, but I wasn't really a fan of the sauce (I lean heavily towards lexington style after spending 5 years in NC). The fries had some seasoning on them that I couldn't place ("cajun" or paprika with just the right amount of salt), but were hot and delicious. Collard greens were okay. A friend also had pork with mac and cheese (his review: mediocre) and beans (okay). I've been searching for good pork bbq in the DC area and still haven't found anything after 15 years that makes me go out of my way to get it. Maybe the other meats here are better? Seems to me people in the area can only figure out beef and ribs...
