Two drummers is a great barbecue place. Does the classics well, but just a bit different to make it not just another Virginia/NC barbecue joint. Good variety on the menu, plenty of local/regional beers and wines, a few unusual menu items and veggies that aren't quite traditionally southern. Worth a few visits.

The brisket was amazing! I asked for medium rare and my burger was super rare. The chocolate cake was soggy.

I'm giving this place 3 stars because it is as advertised. The only reason that I can't give it more is the same reason that I don't support old City BBQ. The food is way overpriced and isn't bad but for that price you can go somewhere and get a lot more food. I'm not by any means saying that the food that they have is bad, they have ... read more

I had meatloaf and mashed potatos, both very bland. Husband had french dip brisket sandwich, au jus was very bland. Mostly just seemed everything was underseasoned. Pork rinds were good. Service was also good.

This place is an amazing find in the middle of what seems nowhere. All of the smoked meats are awesome. The honey maple smoked chicken is to die for. Everything I've had here was great along with the service. My gf and I go to a lot of BBQ places and this one seriously takes the cake.

The smokehouse burger and sweet potato fries were really good. The kids loved the ribs and Mac and cheese. My one complaint would be our service was a bit slow—the place wasn’t crowded and we were left waiting at our table a lot, so 4/5.

this was the best stop I made the entire part of my vacation. It was the very last stop we made on the way back to Richmond. It was worth every penny and every second the food was amazing they had burnt ends and the service was excellent I will return during a regular work week because of how amazing and how good the food was.

Wow! When we pulled up to Two Drummers, I had no idea what to expect.

Quaint little restaurant with a mostly bbq menu. I ordered the brisket and ribs with baked beans and mashed potatoes. The side dishes were underwhelming and the brisket came with an odd gravy-like sauce on it. My wife ordered the pulled pork and thought it was incredible. Seems hit or miss.
