South Fork Barbecue

Purveyor of America's Oldest Cuisine


My name is Blaine and I love barbecue.  I strive to create exceptionally executed barbecue and southern cuisine honoring the traditions, techniques, and crafts of the American South.  I focus on time-tested methods:  low temperatures, live oak fire, and many patient hours. These elements ensure that the results are full of smoke-infused goodness and tender to the bite. 

South Fork began as a small farmer's market stand in 2013.   The restaurant and meat counter opened Spring of 2015.   Southern Living Magazine placed South Fork on "The Great American Barbecue Bucket List" as one of fifty spots in the United States worth road-tripping for in 2017 and 2018.

My thanks to all who have enjoyed my food and lent support over the years.  Your enthusiasm and patronage are greatly appreciated.

I look forward to continuing to serve the Shenandoah Valley great barbecue.
