Most of the BBQ I have had in Richmond has either been average or disappointing (that includes the place that garnered popularity of the Food Channel "discovered" it). TD's is a good place to get some pulled pork; the brisket, not so much. But then, I am used to Texas BBQ and Beef rules there!

This eatery shares a corner of a building with a lube shop.Don't let that stop you.TD's is an excellent classic 'hole in the wall' take out, with maybe 6 stools in the waiting area. The pork ribs were moist, smokey flavorful without too much sauce and the meat fell off the bone. The cooker sits out front next to Patterson... More

Not really a dine in, but good bbq no matter where you eat. The prices are very competitive, and the service is friendly.

This is a return trip for us. We came here directly from the airport, that will tell you how much we cherish this restaurant. The BBQ here is among the best I have ever had and the owner takes pride in his work. All is prepared to order, you will not see any heating elements that keep cooked food warm.... More

We have been ordering from TD's for over 15 years and always do take-out. We especially enjoy their BBQ and ribs.

I arrived at 12 noon and all they had ready was pulled pork...? Which I have to say was pretty dry. I will say that the man at the counter was very friendly.

I always try the brisket on my first visit to Q shack. I think it's the hardest meat to do right and if the brisket is good then all is good. Today their brisket was dry and chewy. It had great flavor though, nice bark and deep smoke ring. The roll was good too. The baked beans were the best... More

The owner combines his 2 passions-barbecue and cars. Haven't tried the other side, but if the line and call ahead orders are any testament, plenty of folks think he does a great job on all the typical BBQ menu items. We have eaten from here at least 3 times.Have seen & smelled the smoker many times while driving by. It... More

We learned of this place by reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. It is 15 minute ride from downtown but it is worth the effort. The place is very unassuming and it shares a wall with a garage and lube establishment. The place is very small, it can only have 6 people inside, and since there no tables you need to... More
