The Barbecue is excellent, some of the best we have had. We even bought a bottle of the sauce to bring home. The fries were great and the cole slaw perfect. We also had some wonderful hushpuppies with butter. This was a takeout meal and the service was fine.

We were driving on Broad Street contemplating a dinner spot when we drove by Extra Billys. So, we gave it a try. Our first impression was not very positive. Both the grounds and interior are somewhat tired and very worn in appearance. It appears that the owners are not putting much money back into the property. It is need of facelift. We had the minced BBQ pork sandwich with fries and baked beans. Average flavor and ample portions. It would be better if they had warmed the bun, rather then just putting it on the plate. The fries/wedges were very good. It's worth a try if you have not been. Our favorites are Kings in Petersburg and Allmans in Fredericksburg.

Great food. Great BBQ. Great service. What else can you really ask for? This has been a BBQ landmark in RVA for a long time so it's definitely worth a visit.

I have been to Extra Billy's several times in the past year. They have a nice selection of barbecue and ribs but the highlight of the restaurant is the large salad bar. You can get the salad bar for one of your vegetables for a small charge or get it as your meal. The bar is stocked with lots of fresh vegetables including artichokes, black/green olives, roaster red peppers, and a selection of cheeses and dressings. In addition, the restaurant has a nice happy hour with reasonably priced drink specials. Lots of locals seem to frequent the bar and they all seem friendly to visitors to Richmond.

Extra Billy's is the original bbq in Richmond. They do great pulled pork and chicken. They serve your drinks in mason jars and their sides are awesome, make sure you order a basket of hush puppies and don't forget about them for your parties or work events!
