Billiken’s Smokehouse and Allman’s BBQ make ‘Best BBQ’ list in Northern Virginia Magazine

March 20, 2024 | FXBG Food Finds, Fredericksburg Business News |

BillikensIn the April 2024 edition of Northern Virginia Magazine, its list of the Best BBQ in NoVa featured two familiar names: Billiken’s Smokehouse and Allman’s BBQ.

This honor is unsurprising to the people of Fredericksburg, as Billiken’s and Allman’s have been revered in Fredericksburg, and throughout Virginia, for years (or, for Allman’s, seven decades). Guests of Billiken’s can enjoy delicious meals such as Smoked Brie or The Chimney Stack (a sandwich with brisket, pulled pork, pork belly, sausage and a sliced tomato topped with a fried egg), two items which Northern Virginia Magazine highlighted in its excerpt on the beloved Fredericksburg smokehouse. 

Allman’s, a classic BBQ joint that has received many accolades in the past few years, is known for delicious BBQ meals such as The PitMaster (chopped beef brisket, spicy mayo and candied jalapenos on a toasted bun) and Allman’s Slaw Dog. This revered, Virginia BBQ has been perfected by co-owner at pitmaster Matthew Deaton. His work in revamping Allman’s menu has led directly to this honor in Northern Virginia Magazine. 

Among the many wonderful restaurants in Fredericksburg, Billiken’s Smokehouse and Allman’s BBQ stand out as some of the best BBQ in not only Northern Virginia, but this entire commonwealth. Needless to say, this accolade by Northern Virginia Magazine is more than deserved.
