First time at this local restaurant. Very friendly staff. Food was served quick. The quality of the food was great. Really enjoyed the lunch. Unfortunately, was in a rush and forgot to take pics.

I used to be a regular at Richard's when I lived in Salisbury 20 years ago and always enjoyed it. I was back in town with my family the other day and decided to eat there for the first time in years. Like I said in my review title, I must have caught them on a bad day. The bbq... More

A local hang out where our waitress Shanna could not have been nicer or more adorable and everyone was friendly. We had good vinegar based BBQ, slaw and hush puppies.

Stopped at Richard's on our way home from Raleigh. Looked online for BBQ and Richard's came up and it did not disappoint. The BBQ was delicious with a good smokey flavor. I had fried okra as my side and enjoyed it. They offer a salad bar and many veggies. You could tell the place gets lots of regulars because the... More

This is a stand alone BBQ place where the waitresses know your name or meet you with real affection. The que is great, the other foods are also great and this place has the absolute best crinkle cut french fries in the free world. You'll see millionaires in trucks! Its really a great lunch.

Dropped in for lunch and was warmly welcomed, "Take a seat anywhere", and we quickly found seats. Thinking it was just a BBQ place, we were surprised to find a wide variety of offerings. The food came soon after we ordered, and the waitress - Danielle - kept the drink cups filled. It was all good, from the sliced pork... More

How in the world this this place get placed on the North Carolina BBQ Trail. The Q was dry and flavorless, even with extra sauce. They were even out of potato salad at 5 PM. We were told the beans were made in store, tasted like they were dumped out of a can. The hush puppies were over cooked and... More

Best BBQ in the area. Winks has slightly better sauce but Richards definitely has the best smoked meat.... The service and atmosphere is the tie breaker.
