Our Story

Our location has a deep-rooted history in the Reston community.


Once upon a time, Peppers BAR-B-Q restaurant occupied this space and thrived.  It was owned and operated by famous and legendary local basketball coach Stu Vetter.  Peppers was famous among the locals.


After several alternate restaurant concepts recently failed here, we bought the location.  We have successfully revived the history and delicious flavor of slow-smoked barbecue because we smoke our meat fresh daily on-site.  We rebuilt, rennovated, and modernized the restaurant.  We're now once again building a loyal following of our authentic barbecue.


Coach Vetter can often be found here dining with his many famous players who went on to be superstars in the NBA.  He also often stops in with many other very famous superstar coaches.  We never know who may be eating at Sweet Heat!


Please stop in and sample our delicious American barbecue.  Made with passion every day.  From our family to yours, we really do care to serve you the best barbecue we can!
