As an amateur bbq chef and smoker I've been dying to get south and try some "real" bbq! Everything was amazing! Not the most beautiful restaurant but what it lacks in ambience it makes up for it in the food! The pulled pork slider was amazing and the ribs were just as delicious! Great spot in Richmond as we headed... More

Stopped here for a quick bite and wow! Absolutely amazing how good it was. The brisket very tender and the fried okra was the best I've ever tasted. You must try this place if you love BBQ, down home goodness.

First time we visited, I brought my three little ones on a spur-of-the-moment trip to Richmond. They loved, and I loved it!! We had chicken tenders, fried pickles, and a few other great things! We sat outside on the giant picnic tables. So fun!!! Second time I came solo for take-out. I just had to get those fried pickles again,... More

I've been to Buz and Ned's many times and always had great food. I was a little bit disappointed last week though. I needed a rib fix so I went past a dozen barbecue restaurants to go to Buz and Ned's on Broad Street. I ordered the baby back ribs and they were super tough. These ribs failed the low... More

I stopped in here for a business lunch in Richmond. This is a great BBQ place that would be extremely hard not to enjoy. Portions are large and tasty. Located in a fun and lively setting this is the type of establishment one expects to enjoy good BBQ. My only complaint was the the time it took to get the... More

My cousin recommended this place. Whenever I eat at a BBQ joint that someone recommends, or that is a famous BBQ joint, I usually eat something that is the best I’ve ever had at any BBQ joint. At this place, it was the collard greens.

I ordered the bar b que with fries combo. the sandwitch had a wonderful smoke flavor. The fries were shoe string style. The place had wonderful declorations and a hand washing sink met us at the door. The meal came just under $10.00. The waitress Victoria was outstanding and met our every need. I will make a point to stop... More

This is the real deal. The BBQ pork is tender, with some desirable chewy bits, smoky, rich, really good. The sides are delicious. I love the mac 'n cheese, the greens, the baked beans....all of them! The drink station can be a bit of a bottleneck, and the indoor space is quite limited, but hey, this is an urban BBQ... More

Hey Joy, Thanks for the kind review. We really appreciate it! In case space is a consideration, I just wanted to take a moment to mention that our Broad Street location has the same food, just with more space and seating! Thanks, again for your review. We look forward to seeing you, soon! More

While Buz has been dishing real barbecue in Richmond since 1992, our first brick-and-mortar location on Boulevard opened in 1995. We've also had the honor and privilege of being featured on some of television's top food shows. We are thankful to our loyal fan base that keeps coming back year-after-year. We opened our Broad St. location in 2012 and we look forward to bringing the same barbecue tradition to the West End.
