I just went over to Lorton Station and found nothing there. If there was supposed to be a barbecue battle it is not at Lorton Station.

A follow up to my earlier comment: I thought by some chance I was confused and went to LORTON MARKET CENTER since they have a GLORY DAYS GRILL, who also serve GREAT RIBS AND WINGS Maybe they were in this competetion as well, of course no activities .NO SMOKER TRAILERS anywhere I'm wondering what did they do with all those cooked ribs? what kind of organization doesn't follow thru? I did remeber that RED HOT & BLUE was competing thinking maybe they moved it to their landsdowne center location . I went in and the manager said it was "CORPORATE" ,I GIVE ALL 3 RIBS POOR GRADES . NOW some may say I'm unfair, but back to the Kingstowne RH&B location. I went back with my wife since I really wanted RIBS!!! I ordered a whole 24.00 "MEATY" slab, she ordered a smaller ribster sandwich ,great pork on a bun with 2 ribs hers was absolutely succulent, my1/2 wet 1/2sweet slab was really neither it had not much meat compared to my wifes 2 ribs . I couldn't complain since the manager who I had spoken earlier compt'd us an appetizer cheese fries(they were great ,so was MY sides) The service was absolutly great ! BUT my full slab of ribs just not that great.....MAYBE CORPORATE CAN FIX THIS ?OR THE MAGAZINE OR lorton town center CAN RESCHEDULE AND INCLUDE IT'S ABSOLUTE TENANTS
