While I don't have much to compare it to since I haven't been to any of the mom 'n pop BBQ places in Virginia, I am a big fan of the ribs at Old Glory BBQ in Georgetown. The ribs at Red Hot & Blue are not as good, in my opinion. Never been to Rocklands, but I frequently drive/walk by the Glover Park location and the smell makes my mouth water every time. I've heard many people recommend the Mighty Midget Kitchen in Leesburg. It is literally a tiny tin shack, built from the fuselage of a World War II bomber. I actually lived in Leesburg a while back and had their peach habanero wings (across the street at Tuskie's) and they were the best wings I've ever tasted.
