James City County is pleased to announce that Two Drummers Smokehouse won the title of “Eat Like a Local - Local Hot Spots” in the 2016 Virginia is for Lovers Culinary Challenge. The award is the largest accolade in the annual culinary contest sponsored by the Virginia Tourism Corporation (VTC). Restaurants are nominated through public feedback and vetted by VTC before they are able to compete.

To win the title, Two Drummers Smokehouse competed in a public vote against 32 other restaurants including two other County restaurants, Dudley’s Bistro and Old Chickahominy House. Located at 8864 Richmond Road West in Toano, Two Drummers Smokehouse offers a full menu of barbequed and smoked items with a variety of southern comfort foods and brunch on weekends. Two Drummers Smokehouse features locally sourced produce and uses local purveyors to cut down on fuel emissions.

Two Drummers Smokehouse is owned by brothers Jon and Jason Wade. The duo opened Two Drummers Smokehouse in 2013 and have since expanded the restaurant and its offerings to include breakfast. The Wades grew up in James City County and worked at a variety of local restaurants before opening Two Drummers Smokehouse.

“We appreciate all the support from our customers, friends and family. Being recognized as a “Local Hot Spot” is awesome and it lets Jason and I know that our work to become Virginia’s best smokehouse is paying off,” said Jon Wade.

Two Drummers Smokehouse recently announced that they will begin composting all food scraps to create organic material for the restaurant’s garden.
