Before a big move around the corner to 600 Concord Avenue, Ace’s told a fine story about its formation, like this:

In 1988, twelve-year old Brian Ashworth wandered off JP Burley Middle School grounds to clear his head. Crossing Rose Hill Drive against school rules, he walked down to Henry Avenue. Only getting two blocks, he saw Dotties Cafe. The place was small but bustling! In went Ashworth. Being greeted by Dottie made him feel welcome. All the way through high school at Murray, young Brian would frequent Dotties for sandwiches. Two decades later Brian Ashworth opened Ace Biscuit & Barbecue, bringing back to the Rose Hill neighborhood what it once had: a restaurant that prepares and serves food with love.

Then Brian moved down and across onto an artery of Charlottesville machine works, and opened a bigger, better Ace.

Ace Biscuit and Barbecue is a humble restaurant with all-day breakfast biscuit sandwiches and BBQ, plus local beer and from-scratch sauces. Serving breakfast and lunch specials, Ace offers an authentic taste of southern cooking. Ace also caters large quantities for special events with Breakfast and lunch and catering EVERYDAY!

Southern Soul Food/Barbecue. Serving Virginia raised Beef.
