Fantastic dinner at the Ritz MV Soulfood & BBQ. Deviled eggs to die for, finger licking good ribs, and best collards ever (and I was raised in the South). Bravo to the whole team. Great food and great service. I predict standing room only.

They always seem to have live music there during the summer. Definitely a dive bar but good drinks and a fun atmosphere.

I visited this place for bite to eat, and was initially attracted by the great atmosphere from the live band playing. However, the best thing about the experience was the food - it was excellent.
