Great place, very clean, nice patio space should you want to eat outside, lots of inside space as well. If you're looking for some loving when they cook your meal, this is the place. Its not to big and not to small. This establishment is not a franchise, or at least does not feel like so, it doesn't have  that cookie cutter feel franchise usually has. It seems they do things their way. All the people that tended to our needs were extremely friendly. Then their is the food, which does not disappoint. I went out with some family and friends and they did nothing but compliment the food and service. Great first impression, will return here. More...

Oh my gosh I don't know how I didn't discover this place before.  Its actually across the street from the vet's office that my precious pup goes too.  Tuesday's special was fried chicken on the day I was there, and I am sort of fried chicken snob.  This place didn't let me down the pieces were generous, chicken wasn't dry.  The breading could have used a tad bit more pepper for my liking but was super good.  Also the sides were delish!!!  The baked beans might have been the best I've had, just a great flavor, and also the mac-n-cheese with the baked topping with breadcrumbs....yum!!!  There's seating at the bar, and also plenty of tables to sit at.  I will most certainly be back here!

Outstanding barbecue and a cool vibe inside. My favorite barbecue in NoVa. We got the platter with pulled pork, ribs, and brisket. I was blown away by everything but the brisket. So next time it'll be a double portion of ribs! More...

I so love this place. The burnt ends are so good. I like the cornbread however it is served at room temperature. If it was served hot out of the oven, trust me, yousr tastebuds would rejoice. The collard greens are surprisingly good. If you have heard the term pot liquor then you know about flavor. I am anxious to try the fried green tomatoes. The owner is cool too. More...

Picked up take-out for dinner.  The food was a mixed bag...a solid 3-stars.  But, we bumped the overall score up to 4 stars because the staff were very attentive and helpful.When we arrived, the place was crowded.  A large raucous group was enjoying happy hour around the bar, and a big crowd of families were enjoying dinner in the dining area.We were quickly greeted by two young staff members at the reception desk; both were cordial and attentive.  As we worked through our order, they were knowledgeable about the menu and patient with our questions.  They were also quick to seek help when they couldn't answer a question on their own.While we waited for our order, we grabbed a beer at the bar.  Despite the crowd, the bartender wasted no time acknowledging us and working our order in with the others she was making.  Once we had our drinks, we scooted away from the crowd to a stand-up table at the side of the room...and enjoyed a few minutes of people watching.  After a surprisingly short time, our order came out and we were headed home.As we settled into our meals, we found the food to be a mix of solid, average, and disappointing.  We ordered the Pitmaster Sampler, an additional 1/2 lb of pork, fries, onion rings, bbq beans, and mac and cheese.  We also brought home three different bbq sauces...mild, spicy, and sweet.  The Pitmaster was a nice selection of most of the meat options available on the menu...a great way to get a really good sense of the place's bbq.  It included ribs, brisket, burnt ends, pulled pork, pulled chicken, and sausage.  That said, the ribs were well smoked and nicely seasoned.  They could have been a bit more tender, but on the whole, were a solid choice.  The sausage had a nice flavor and texture, but we had trouble finding any smoke in the flavor at all, which made it seem like it could have just as easily been cooked over a generic grill.  Again though, the sausage had a nice flavor and texture.  The pulled pork and chicken were just ok.  The chicken had a hint of smoke, but it was hard to find any in the pork.  And, on the whole, neither meat felt like anything special.  The burnt ends and brisket were the low point in the meal.  The brisket had only a mild smokiness, was dry, and a bit tough...just not very good bbq'd brisket.  The burnt ends... were poorly named.  The portion we were served was moderately flavorful, but seemed more like 1 inch cubes of cooked stew meat rather than dark crusty burnt tips/ends of brisket that spent hours over smoke.  For the sides...the beans had a nice flavor, the mac and cheese was decent, and the fries and onion rings were both great.  Rounding out the meal, we enjoyed all three bbq sauces.On the whole, it was definitely a positive experience.  While we didn't love all the food, there was enough we liked to bring us back.  And, with good service, we can overlook average food.

Best burgers in the area. Great staff, good location, and a place with a lot of style, but especially.... GREAT FOOD!!! I swear every type of meat is really good, and they have a large menu. Also desserts are delicious. There are the right prices.Like many people, I’m a usual client of this bbq, and I go there often.The only thing they should improve is creating bunus meals after adding point each time you go there. As a good marketing technique, people would love to go to Mookie’s to eat great food and get some “client’s points”.~Alex More...

Came in for one of the family pack take out options. So much delicious food! Pulled pork was my favorite when paired with the homemade spicy sauce (vinegar sauce was good as well). Staff was super friendly and food was ready right when they said so. Collard greens weren't my favorite, but the coleslaw and potato salad hit the spot. More...

An amazing bit of bbq in Virginia. The staff is warm and welcoming. The brisket is firm but tender. The pulled pork carries its smokey flavor. The ribs have the right amount of char kissing their edges. The sausage has a wonderful taste. And the burnt ends practically melt in your mouth. The cherry pie for dessert (seasonal, so you might get something else) was very full of berries and tender crust. The cookie my daughter had was drizzled in chocolate and topped with ice cream. All in all one of the best bbq meals to be had locally. More...

Some of the best barbecue we've had in the DMV. Nice, clean restaurant with bbq classics as well as some creative twists (bbq nachos, salad topped with pulled pork and brister, etc). Prices are a little high--about what you'd expect for this area--but the service, food, and atmosphere are great! We recommend the Pittmaster Salad! More...

Highly recommend.Large portions.Decent prices.The best BBQ restaurant I've had in the area. We had the small BBQ nachos, which could easily fill you up, and the mac n cheese balls for apps. Portions are gigantic. I lived in Memphis, TN and think it's as good as Memphis BBQ. More...

Absolutely love Mookie's food and service. The sides are so fresh and tasty. But the portion for the sides is a little bit small. I wish we could order an extra Large side of something (I'd happily pay extra to have extra). But that's the only thing I would change. The bbq meat portions are good, the ribs are tender, and both are fairly generous portions. I love the way Mookie's is involved in the community and also love their catering service. More...

Arrived at Mookies on a Sunday around 1pm. The brunch menu looked great however I opted for ribs, collards, and baked mac & cheese. Needless to say it did not disappoint. The collards were perfect and complemented the cornbread nicely. The ribs really didn't need sauce as they were flavored exceptionally well. This was my fisrt trip here but will not be my last.

In the heart of Great Falls, this BBQ places offers fast and friendly service. Mookie's sauce is pretty good and the place is very clean with plenty of seating.

This little out of the way place is a treasure! You would think you're stepping back in time into your uncle Reggie's back yard in 1986 when they bring out the brisket or the loaded fries you ordered. Come hungry; the portions are generous. Great service, great BBQ, right here in VA. More...

Love this place. BBQ is great and nothing is super greasy.  Collard greens are so good. Brisket, pulled pork and sausage is fantastic. Wings are the best. We've ordered them for two parties so far and everyone loves them. The only con is their salads could be a little better. Just iceberg lettuce and a basic salad with BBQ on top. Could add some leaf lettuce, goat cheese and nuts to take it up a notch. More...

Everything we ordered was delicious! We haven't found a bbq that we liked until now - other places are always missing something whether it be good meats but meh bbq sauce or great bbq sauce but meh sides. But this place... has it all!!! We came hungry and thirsty after some outdoor activities. Ordered Mac & cheese balls, loaded chili, kids pork slider, pulled pork platter & smoked sausage platter. The Mac & cheese balls were to die for! The chili was hearty and flavorful - we opted for loaded and did not regret it (cheese, sour cream, avocado).  The bbq meats did not disappoint & the bbq sauces were also purely divine. We were very pleasantly surprised that this place had it all. And to top it off, GREAT SERVICE as well. Our server's name was Matt & he was on top of always refilling our drinks + anything else we needed. Highly recommend!!! More...

We were staying in town for the weekend so we decided to try this place out for dinner. Everything was great from service to the food! We got the fries with cheese and pulled pork for appetizer.

I highly recommend this local restaurant! Great prices and generous portions. More...

Upon walking in the door I was skeptical that this establishment could live up to the precedence of the Serbian Crown, the previous restaurant in the building. I was convinced as soon as the good came out. The brisket was possibly the best I've ever had. It was tender and had a smokey flavor that took my breath away. The BBQ chicken salad was also astoundingly good. The pulled chicken paired perfectly with the corn, salsa and tomato in the salad - giving it a South Western vibe. The service was fast and friendly. I plan on returning to this place very soon! More...

Generous portions. Great service.  The chili wasflavorful and mild enough for kids.  (The bowl is huge.). We also had the small fry appetizer with pulled pork, burnt ends and house-made cheese sauce as an entree It was flavorful and enough for a meal.  I'd call it a southern poutine.  It was a good way to try a couple of bbq meats for a reasonable price.  We like that they said they don't use nitrates in their bbq, seasoning and sauces.  We will be back.

We used Mookie's for take out.

All of the food was packaged with care,including putting all the containers in a reusable tote. Salad was fresh, meat cooked very well, sides fresh and plentiful. We had a bunch of sauces and enjoyed dipping all of them to try out. All in all, excellent customer service and excellent food! More...

This is 100% legit BBQ!  I sat at the bar and ordered the Pitmaster Salad and Onion Rings. Service was fast and friendly and along with the local "regulars", made this traveler feel very welcome. The rings are every bit as good as the reviews say they are and the Q was spot on!  Pitmaster salad was ample and served in a LARGE bowl. Menu said a mix of iceberg and romaine but I would question if there was truly any romaine in the bowl.  Burnt ends were OUTSTANDING  and the pulled pork held its own against any I've ever had...or made. (Was on a competition bbq team in a previous life and am a bbq snob)  portions were absolutely reasonable but I wouldn't say that the meat or fries were "piled" as the menu description suggested.  Perhaps i just didn't want the goodness to end. The corn bread accompaniment was moist and slightly sweet making it a perfect 10! These fine hardworking folks have certainly earned my respect. Don't deny yourself the pleasure of a visit...or two.

Mookie's never disappoints! Today we went by at mid afternoon and there were only a handful of people eating. I got the half chicken and added on the burnt ends.

Everyone in my office was talking about Mookie's so we had no choice but to go for lunch when I worked at my last job. I love how hidden the place was. And the food was delicious! I ordered my favorite BBQ item--brisket, which came with cornbread and two sides. I chose the potato salad and mac & cheese, which went perfectly with the brisket. The food was amazing, however, we were seated in front of the kitchen window. Our view wasn't as pleasant, as we saw someone preparing a meal item with their hands. Other than that, the food was great and had a good first visit. More...

Love that this place is in our small town. Definitely the best meal you can get in Great Falls.  Great bbq,  solid service and good rotating selection of IPAs.  Wings and the plain old cheese burger are the hidden gems on the menu, if you're not feeling the normal bbq stuff.  Even the desserts are stellar!Complaints?  While the brisket is amazing, the pulled pork is only slightly above average. Also I wish they served beef ribs more often! More...

The waiters were nice, and the onion rings were the most enjoyed. The large nachos were around 14 dollars and were huge! Its very convenient when I'm in a hurry. Nice food, and the place is like the center of great food in the area. The only thing I didn't like was the pork because it was a little flavorless but the provided BBQ sauce helped. Thanks for the nice meal I had! More...

Second visit here and both have exceeded expectations. My go-to BBQ spot is in DC, I won't say it's name in this review, but it rhymes with Shill Shmontry. Mookie's is a more laid back spot, great for date night, and the food is as good as you will find in the Greater Washington Area. It has that home-cooked TLC quality about it. Staff are genuinely pleasant and warm. Andrew is really knowledgeable about the menu, top-notch server. Worth the visit. P.S. Full bar and HH specials. More...

I had never heard of this place but it came recommended by people at Riverbend Park, where we were hosted our son's third birthday. We didn't order too much since it was mostly kids but we ended up getting pulled pork, cinnamon apples, and potato salad. Separately we provided our own slider rolls and my wife made her macaroni salad. The guy showed up on time, if not early, to set everything up and was well-prepared with not only the trays, stands, Sternos, and water, but also plates, utensils, and napkins. They also brought three sauces: sweet, spicy, and Mook's. The pork was delicious and I enjoyed every sauce--the best combo was then adding the apples on top of the residual BBQ sauce. The apples themselves were tasty, not too heavy on the cinnamon, but a little too cooked down (compared to what I was expecting). The potato salad was very good, seasoned well; the only complaint from my wife was that the onions were chopped a bit on the larger side instead of being more diced/minced. Ordering everything was easy--the staff we spoke with were all attentive and very personable. I'd gladly have them cater again and perhaps try the mac and cheese next time or even better, pop in and actually sit down to eat. More...

i was surprised when I walked in because this place had sit down service and was really clean. It was so clean, it looked new.  BBQ places I am used to going to have us ordering at the counter and then sitting at a table and waiting for it. The BBQ food came out with a nice presentation as well.The brisket was amazing, very tender and moist.  We tried a lot of food, but my husband and I liked the brisket best, then the ribs, and then the cornbread.  The collard greens were cooked to perfect doneness, but lacked smoky flavor. Cole slaw also lacked a little zip.  Adding salt didn't help. Overall, a really nice place to eat. I also liked that we could see into the kitchen! More...

The ribs, the brisket, the burnt ends, the pulled pork, and the pulled chicken was amazing. Hard to pick favorite. Portions were hearty, leftovers will be enjoyed. Their onion rings and potato salad were so fresh and delicious. This was my first visit there, and I will definitely be back again. Every single one of us (12) thoroughly enjoyed our dinner meetup.

The coleslaw, hot apples, string crispy french fries and yummy onion rings are all worth savoring.By the way, the service was fantastic. Go out of your way if you are in the mood for barbecue.

Best BBQ I've had outside of southern VA- satisfactorily generous portion size; not a heaping sandwich but definitely filling and not stingy. The sides are good too, don't taste like they're from Giant. For my birthday in 2017 I had BBQ in Minneapolis that was terrible so I swore having anything but southern BBQ off until I ate here about a month ago. Great positive atmosphere, the climate control was a little spotty depending where you sit but everything else made up for it. Great place to make your BBQ dreams come true or get a buzz going.

I love BBQ.  A lot.  So seeing the strong reviews for Mollie's o made the trip from Bethesda to check them out.   Now, I'm from Oklahoma and have lived in Texas for over 20 years.  It's hard to beat BBQ in the South.  But Mookie's does their darnedest to do just that.  I ordered the pulled chicken platter with cole slaw and BBQ beans.  My meal was out in less than 5 minutes.  The BBQ beans were bathed in a thick blankety sauce of sweet but tangy and slightly zesty goodness.  The chicken was approximately 8 oz of nicely spiced breast meat that was moist and could well have been eaten without sauce.  But, honestly, who would deprive themselves like that?Mookie's offers 5 sauce varieties for your specific taste.  I had them all.  The regular sauce is tomato based with a very subtle hint of sweet and spice.  The sweet sauce is full of brown sugar goodness like Grandma Dempsey used to make from scratch.  The vinegar sauce is traditional down home Southern vinegar, it too having a nice hint of spiciness.  My two favorites were the Carolina mustard style and Mook's spicy.  The spicy sauce is richly flavored with cayenne pepper and while I personally would have enjoyed it a bit hotter, for most people it would have been perfect.  As for the sides, the beans were as good as they sounded and looked.  The cole slaw, as a few other reviewers have noted, was slightly on the bland side, although the abundance of celery seed provided a nice flavor that brought the dish a little more to life.  If you are in the Great Falls area and are interested in very good food and at very reasonable price (my meal and a glass of tea was $18), check out Mookie's.  The service was fast, the setting beautiful, and the food will not disappoint.    Cheers!

I'm not huge on bbq but this place is pretty good. Their specials have never disappointed. Make sure you try their pastrami and the brisket quesadillas! Their bbq sauces are solid but could use a little extra kick. Also, for being a bbq spot I'd prefer more classic American beers on tap like yuengling, bud, and miller. I like some of the new funky beers, but it's something about the classic American beers that wash down bbq food better. That change alone would probably take it to 5 star! More...

I lived in VA for five years, but somehow I didn't discover Mookie's BBQ until a Yelp friend recommended it to me. All those years I could have been enjoying Mookie's heavenly BBQ... But instead I was wasting my meals at so many other, lesser restaurants! The burnt ends... OH MY GOD. You will be hard pressed to find a more tender or juicy meat anywhere else in the DMV. The meat is just exquisite, you'll have to try it for yourself.The brisket were lean and had delicious crust, with the little fat content I expected hard texture but were delighted to taste an unexpected soft and tenderness in the briskets.The Beef ribs were OK, tasty, tender, and big but not particularly meaty.All the sides are really good here. Our favorites are baked macaroni and cheese, potato salad, and onion rings.Mookie's BBQ is with out a doubt a place that anyone who loves the art of BBQ should seek out. Everything from the ambiance, great friendly staff, to the food is incredible. Will definitely revisit. More...

Enjoyed lunch at Mookie's BBQ on a chilly Tuesday afternoon.  Restaurant is nicely laid out with a bar area and comfortable seating in the main restaurant.  Prices are fair for the area and no issues using Yelp Check In.Onion rings were amazing, without a doubt the best I have ever had, light, crispy, delicious, not greasy and perfectly cooked, I would go back just for the onion rings.  Collard greens were nicely seasoned and very tasty.  Corn bread was dry, only took one bite.  The burnt ends were good, meaty, nicely charred and not too dry.  BBQ sauces were totally forgettable.  Enjoyed my meal especially the awesome onion rings.

The patio area is beautiful; I love nice outside seating areas where you can relax with a meal. I've never had such good loaded fries! Usually other places are pretty skimpy with the fixings but Mookie's is was truly loaded. The brisket and sauce that the put in the fries were also so delicious. The sandwich and sauces were on point and the potato salad was perfect with a little crunch from bits of celery. We'll be going back soon! More...

I just ate there tonight for the first time. I went in by myself which is sometimes daunting because most places don't have a specialized table for just one person. However they do which I would say is the only critique of the place was the seat was next to the window and the crank for the window was sticking in my side. However the food was excellent.  I was this place was more convenient for me. I work in Sterling and live in Winchester. Though I think if it was more convenient I wouldn't ever leave.

I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled upon Mookie's driving around. Pulled Pork sandwich was very good. I'm just reviewing the BBQ here I didn't hang at the bar or anything.The atmosphere isn't your typical side of the road BBQ joint, it is like half bar and half McDonalds dining area. When I went it was basically empty which scared me, but it turned out good. I don't think people know it exists. I've eaten like everywhere, especially out in the Herndon/Reston area and never heard of this. The location (on the way to nothing and not visible from Route 7) and the expensive cost probably keep people away.The pulled pork sandwich is phenomenal. I really didn't expect it. I'm a Carolina fan so I went with the Vinegar sauce (they have several different options) and at the last minute I also added the Mookie's original sauce and wow what a great combo. It is def my fav pulled pork in the area based on how good it tasted.It came with a side, I got fries because I hate BBQ sides (whatevs). The price was $10 which is steep. At a typical BBQ joint I can order a sandwich without a side. Plus at a typical spot you don't have to tip like it is a restaurant. Maybe I sat in the wrong spot.Anyways the pulled pork sandwich is 5 stars, but the cost knocks it down a star. If you like BBQ then I recommend you try it at least once, and let everyone how the sides are because people love sides :D. More...

Good barbecue is hard to find but Mookie's delivers.  Located in the small Colvin Run "downtown" area, there is ample parking and its a pretty size restaurant inside.  The seating is a little run down- the bench in our booth was more of a crater and had seen better days back in the early 80s.  But the food is quite good.  I always judge a BBQ joint by the brisket.  The price seemed a little steep until I got the plate.  For the first time I couldn't finish it just because of the sheer amount.  Perfect smoke ring on the outside, great spice rub, and the variety of sauces is a great finish.  I had the mac and cheese on the side which was nicely baked on top with just the right amount of spice.  The chicken tenders for our daughter were quite tasty, and I like that they did a separate mac and cheese for her without the spice.  Can't wait to go back!

Specials are fantastic!! Had the white bean and ham - succulent!! Special pastrami sandwich with sauerkraut - incredible! Of course their Mac n cheese is traditional style goodness! Just the best place. Planned of course on pulled pork sandwich but chose a special. They had a pastrami burger option too. Fabulous!!! More...

Get: pulled pork nachos, pastrami burger and splurge for the Mac and cheese. Pass on: side of fries Deets: In the mood for awesome bbq and a beer? Look no further than Mookies. This quaint little off the road bbq place was packed when we got there (around noon Saturday) so we chose the bar. The bartender was super sweet and offered a sample of beers we hadn't heard of even though they are local. I loved that they have taps for just local beers- it was a nice home bbq kind of feel. The food was amazing! Not only does it come out of a secret window passage from the bar window with a knock from the chef, but our food came out piping hot. The nachos were a good start and I'd recommend a small for 2-4 people if you are getting other food. The pastrami burger special was delish- the pastrami was thick and aged 9 days. I got a side of Mac and it was cooked in a huge ramekin with a crunchy top. My other half got a pulled pork sandy with fries and enjoyed it with basically every sauce they provide. All and all I totally recommend this place on sunny winter day to feel like your back to the summer side bbq pit. The service, food and local atmosphere were all great.  Cheers! More...

Delicious, love all of the distinctive sauces that are harmonious even mixed.  Light flaky homemade onion rings, and they let the smoked meat stand for itself, it's not doused in sauce you actually get to use what you like as a condiment.  I got the pulled pork and subbed sourdough bread for the bun, nice tender lean meat generously piled.  Hubby got the brisket and it was another generous portion of chunky slices.  We will definitely return.

AMAZING. Seriously, you're missing out if you don't try this place. We stumbled upon it while out for a drive. While I think all of their food was great, the standout star was their brisket. I usually don't care for meat, but loved their brisket. We also had their side platter with cucumber salad, mac & cheese, and chili.We'll definitely return. More...

So good! We started with the nachos with pulled pork which were delicious (and huge!) followed by the sampler platter...pulled chicken/pork, ribs, brisket, burnt ends, and sausage. I'm not normally a fan of sausage but this stuff was great! The chicken was a little dry, but everything else was really good. Kids enjoyed their beef & veggie soup, mac & cheese, chicken tenders and baked beans. And our sever was awesome. We'll be back! More...

Legit BBQ. I had the sampler and all the BBQ staples are done well and done right. Great smoke flavor. Brisket is their best.  Only thing I'd ask for is bigger helpings for the price, but that's a first world problem. More...

I got takeout from here a few days ago and I was wowed by the food. I've been looking for a decent barbecue joint in DC that's not super expensive, and so I'm finally glad I got to try this.We called in our order ahead of time for takeout and it was ready when we arrived. Staff was friendly over the phone and in person, and very accommodating. We took our bbq to a Wolf Trap concert (so about 10 minutes down the road) and it stayed decently warm by the time we got there. I ordered pulled pork and honestly it was made so well that I ALMOST DIDN'T PUT BARBECUE SAUCE ON IT. That would have been a mistake. I tried the sweet barbecue sauce and it felt like heaven. Don't pass it up.Next time I want to have an experience dining in. The outdoor seating looks very pretty and sunny, and to be honest...I want to try the loaded fries. They wouldn't have survived as takeout, but they look incredible.In short, I'm so glad this place isn't far from me :D More...

Food was outstanding. I give them 5 stars for the food. Our waiter was clueless. He was terrible, I must have gotten the same waiter as some of the reviewers that had horrible service.I will be back again for the food. I took two stars away for the waiter/host who couldn't get things right from the start. Fix/Train your staff for the remaining two stars.All the best. Go here for the food.*edit - the fixed the service issue. I bumped this to 5 stars now. More...

This is a hidden gem of delicious bbq delight! I always love the meat here. They leave the sauce on the table and don't let it sit on the meat to hide the flavor of the meat. The sides I have had so far have been right on par for a great bbq establishment. Can't wait to try the cornbread and bbq brunch on Sundays!My only gripe would be that I wouldn't expect such fantastic bbq from such a clean/nice restaurant, I'm use to it coming from a dirty shack on the side of the road. LOL. Good Job Mookie's!!!!!! More...

I went for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. The place is pretty big and our waitress was attentive. After placing an order our food arrived literally in 2 minutes. We both got pulled pork sandwiches and a side. It was pretty good. It's a good place for a casual lunch. More...

Some amazing BBQ! Was pleasantly surprised to find that they have the majority of their barbecue is dry-rubbed; with sauce on the table to add to your liking. I can't do tomatoes, so it was great to finally enjoy some delicious BBQ again. The sides were wonderful as well, especially the potato salad. Staff was super friendly and attentive as well. More...
