Willard's BBQ in Reston

A new barbecue joint is on the horizon in Reston.

Work continues on Willard’s BBQ at 11790 Baron Cameron Ave., in the Home Depot Shopping Center. A representative at the barbecue restaurant’s flagship location in Chantilly said the Reston location is expected to open “in a few more weeks,” but could not provide any further information.

According to information provided by Fairfax County, the building permit for the restaurant was applied for in June and issued in October.

The restaurant’s menu includes a variety of barbecue sandwiches and ribs, along with a full assortment of specialty items and sides.

The upcoming Reston location formerly housed Quality Carpet One Floor & Home.

    This place is phenomenal, some of the best bbq I have ever had. Extra bonus that you don’t have to pay to park to enjoy it !

    Another reason to shun RTC

    Willard’s really is the best BBQ in Northern Virginia, and I say this as a person who lived in Texas for 8 years and sampled quite a few places.

    • zealot73

      Agreed! However as someone who grew up in Dallas and lived there for 21 years I’d say Hill Country BBQ in DC (in Penn Quarter near the Archives/Navy Memorial metro station) is the best in the region.

        But isn’t this a great debate to have!

  • Patricia Dougherty

    Looking forward to trying some great barbeque.
    Glad to not have to pay for parking.
    Good by town center.

    Owners of this place are incredible people. Please support them and their family by eating there and spreading the word!!!
