Good food, on the go!

When I need good Bar-b-q for dinner at home, I always stop at Hillbilly Red's. They are always pleasant, and ready with good food to go, or for eat in. Mostly I get food to go, because of family schedules. We always find it hot and delicious. I would reccomend this restaurant for fast, but... read more

We often take route 60 from Williamsburg to RIC to avoid interstate traffic and discovered this BBQ place in an area where there a few restaurants. It is family owned and operated with a friendly atmosphere. Also very clean! The chicken is good as well as the ribs. I was disappointed that they did not have the beef brisket but... More

Real good smoked pulled pork sandwiches. You also have a choice as to what sauce to use. So if want pulled pork and want to be tomato base sauce or vinegar one you will have it. Cole slaw is good and they have hush puppies too. It's about a mile and half east of the Richmond Airport. So if you... More

The pulled pork barbecue was very nice. The sauces offered were a great addition; did I say I liked the sauces? Nice, quiet atmosphere and unhurried. Great people and good sweet tea. I think you will like it! Don't get fast food when this is close-by!

I have tried pulled and chopped pork BBQ all over Richmond and Petersburg and I can't find anyone that matches the moist, flavorful chopped pork that I get at Hillbilly Red's. 3 side sauces to spice things up provide the right touch to make it just right. Skip the sandwhich bread and go right for the dinner plate that comes... More

We love the BBQ Sandwich Combo. It's loaded with smoked barbeque falling off the bun. We always have to ask for the bun to be cut in half to easily bite into the sandwich. The slaw is always fresh and crispy. The french fries are just perfect--not the thin type and not steak fries! The choice of sauces fit my... More

Ribs were cooked to tender perfection with a light rub on them. Choice of 3 sauces, Carolina, sweet, or mild. The meat is so good you don't need any sauce. My "beef" with them is that they don't sell half slabs and $25 is a lot to plunk down on something you haven't tried. I got two satisfying meals out... More

Beautiful building in Sandston near airport but very average BBQ and sides all the way around. Nice staff but BBQ items disappointing. Wonder how they stay in business.

Driving home from Florida we needed to stop in the Richmond area for dinner. It was hard to locate something handy to our route when we spotted Hillbilly Reds BBQ. We pulled in about 6:35 and noticed they closed at 7 and the parking lot had one car in it. We decided to go in and asked the hostess if... More

Prices are too high but food is pretty good. BBQ was dry but sauce was real good and made up for it. Ask for extra sauce !
