It is really hard to rate a new-to-me restaurant 5 stars during pandemic limitations.  This one got my attention, so I had to do it.  A little off the beaten path for us (80 miles each way) my daughter surprised me in June and brought me here for Father's Day lunch.  The fact that I am still thinking about it enough in October should ... read more

This was my first visit there and I must say I was very impressed with the food, but more over the service was outstanding. My friends enjoyed both mac/cheese dish, the pulled pork was my favorite dish, but again everything that I purchased was top notch. I will visit there again in the future. Good job by the staff there during my O ... read more

We always go here and get there fried pickles. They are the best. We never had a problem here and the food is always hot and delicious. We will be going back.

Best BBQ outside of carolina, texas, or KC. Additionally, the collard greens were the best I've ever had. We went at lunchtime on a Saturday and had the restaurant to ourselves. Great service, great food, and reasonable prices - with this trifecta, I doubt I'll be lucky enough to get in so easily in the future. Thanks Small's for the ... read more

We found this gem on our trip to the zoo and let me say it was great! The burnt ends and the chopped brisket sandwich were both spot on! We'll definitely be back!

We'd never been here before, but tried it on a whim tonight & got mostly appetizers. Each thing was unique and special, but without trying too hard (by which I mean that they didn't try to throw mango chutney or sriracha on everything). I know it seems simple, but the chicken tenders were AMAZING! (I'm not typically much of a dipper, ... read more

Of all my years being on ODU's campus or in the area, I am upset with myself for missing out on this place. I ordered the Texas brisket sandwich on a kaiser roll and seasoned fries. Those were some of the best seasoned fries I have enjoyed at a restaurant. These were the kind of fries you can enjoy without any type of sauce or ketchu ... read more

Yesterday was our first time we came to that excellent restaurant. But It is definitely not the last time. We enjoyed the evening very much with the courteous service, with the superb cuisine and fine drinks and with the friendly payment. We will no doubt go back there again.

I LOVE their back patio! My dog and I are able to sit and enjoy great food in such a great atmosphere! I love the family vibe and the fact that EVERYTHING is made in house . Cannot say enough good things. The staff are always sweet and Taylor and Logan always make sure that you’re happy when you leave!

Nice place with good oysters and barbecue. Ingot lucky and came by on Tuesday, when they have dollar oysters. The beer selection has a decent number of local brews, and the NC barbecue platter did not disappoint this Carolinian. I will definitely go back on my next trip to Norfolk.

Me and my husband are from Kansas City, Missouri. So we love our barbecue. We love Small's and the only reason we were a little disappointed is because of the portions of barbecue (especially in the sandwiches) . I know it may just be a regional thing. However it tasted really great, especially with their variety of sauses! When we f ... read more

We made a reservation for 7:30 and got seated on time. Definitely recommend making a reservation. It also happened to be restaurant week, which we hadn't even planned. We got the three-course meal for $30! I got the miso-crab-cream soup for my appetizer, which was okay.
