Best beef ribs in the world....actually all ribs!! (Smile) outdoor seating and very few tables inside. They have all types of old time sodas to wash down awesome food. Hush puppies are so good, all you can do is shake your head. Parking is good too. I will always go back no questions asked!!!!

Sometimes this place is sooooo good, other times it's just so-so, but we hit it right this time. Pulled pork sandwiches were tasty, grilled shrimp was tasty, beer was cold. An enjoyable dinner.

I ordered with Orderup.com and the wrong order was delivered (after over an hour from placing the order). I called the restaurant to ask about the missing item and incorrect meal delivered. They refused to reimburse me because of using the third party site and they would not deliver the correct items ordered. They said I would have to come... More

Management response:

Hi Ksink, One of the things that is a bit confusing about 3rd party delivery services, such as orderup.com, is that if there's an issue, they are the only ones who can resolve it. Because Buz & Ned's doesn't have delivery drivers, we have nobody who can deliver, or re-deliver your meal. Since many of the drivers from 3rd party... More

I love ribs, and Buz and Ned's makes some of the best. They don't separate the ribs from the "tips" and try to offer it as some "extra"...you get the WHOLE rib, which is as it should be. The ONLY reason they didn't get that 5th star is the problem of parking on Boulevard...which is why I go to the... More

All I can say if you are near the Richmond, VA area you need to stop in for some amazing BBQ. My husband had the two beef ribs, that were huge, and the collard greens, which was very flavorful. I had the BBQ pork sandwich with cole slaw and baked beans that was out of sight! We also split the... More

Some of the best BBQ around (baked beans are good also). Juicy, chunky and tender. Last couple of times I tried their western Henrico County location the pork was chopped to fine and too dry. Hope this was an anomaly. No such problems at the Boulevard location though, its always good. Gets crowded though so avoid peak lunch hours if... More

Some friends and I met at Buz & Ned's before seeing a show downtown. I had the beef ribs and was quite pleased. The food was good but ordering was a little chaotic that night. They have a good menu but it is a little pricey.

Stopped in for quick lunch on way home. Worth all the praise it gets. My wife, daughters, and I sample the brisket, pork, and chicken. All tasty. I usually don't run the risk of overly dry brisket, but this wasn't. Don't usually order chicken, but it was very nicely done. Pork was best: not too shredded, wet, or sweet. Decent... More

Came here with son once while visiting. He said it was the best in town. I would agree with him. So far, as I haven't tried all of the places yet. It is crowded, but that's the norm, evidently, because it is so good!!

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.
