Perfect Blend of Flavors

We respect the traditional BBQ ingredients highlighting smoke, pepper, sweet, salt, and aromatics and enhance them with bright and fresh flavors.


Nobody does BBQ like the south. Without a traditional regional style, West Virginians sample and fuse the various southern BBQ styles to their individual tastes and surround the BBQ with time-honored Appalachian soul food sides.

Zesty. Savory. Succulent.

Dr. Rolf’s Barbeque features unique recipes that have been developed and perfected over many years of experimentation and innovation producing savory, zesty, craft barbeque and sides.

Over time, Dr. Rolf has created a variety of recipes for rubs and sauces that enhance the flavor of his barbeque. The meats are smoked low and slow to capture and seal in all the succulence and flavor so you’ll enjoy every bite.

What Our Customers Are Saying

We love this place! Everything we have tried on the menu is delicious and the hot buttered rum was amazing. The little outside enclosed seating is cozy and private and just warm enough. They are practicing good CoVid protocol and I felt really safe.

We had an excellent time. The tents (mini greenhouses) were warm and comfortable. Food outstanding and service was fabulous. HIGHLY recommend Dr. Rolfs. We will definitely be going back.

We had this for dinner tonight! It was ready when they said it would be and ooh so good. Add some cornbread waffles to your order and get the spicy mustard bbq. Let’s just say I didn’t have leftovers because I couldn’t stop eating it!

Abbey Goodburn

The igloo dining was so perfect for the winter with heat lamps and ample space (I thought I might feel claustrophobic but it was very comfortable). The brisket tacos and chili were amazing and I am SO impressed with the clever idea to do the cornbread waffles (that may have been my favorite part of the meal). Great service from the staff, too. We felt tended to but not bothered or rushed. The food was great, beer was cold, the prices were reasonable, and the staff gave great service; you really can’t ask for any more from a restaurant. Will definitely be back.

This place is amazing and the food is excellent. I could eat here ever day. They have a great selection for everyone. I have not had anything bad from this place. Cornbread waffles are amazing.

Tammy Jo Arnold-Johnson

Had such a blast, stop by for some lunch. The staff was very welcoming and fun to talk to. The food was incredible, I definitely recommend checking this place out.

Christopher Aument

First experience and it was darn good food. Ordered nachos, tots, pulled pork sandwich and all three were better than I anticipated. Will definitely return.

Jeff Brown

The BBQ is absolutely 🔥. Pulled pork is my usual order but the brisket is as good as you would get in southern Texas. I would recommend the White Chicken Chile with any of the great plates they have to offer. Not to mention the sweet and savory sauces,be sure to check out the Spicy Mustard for some real heat.
