Having patronized this once formidable bbq venue for years, food quality and service have declined. Brisket bones were gristly, over-sauced, and lacked consistency in meat content. Beef ribs were tough, chewy and also over-sauced. Our order was not filled properly, service was slow and disjointed...More

Buz and Neds was a nice find thanks to fellow Tripadvisor reviewers. Fantastic baby back ribs that had a nice smoke ring. The cucumber and onion side was really well done also. Must do it again.

They sell gift cards in their online store in the $10-$100 range. I would have provided the web address, but it wouldn't allow me to place links in my reply.

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.
