Home cooking; Good BBQ

I got the sandwich platter, it came with a side and a drink. The sandwich was large and pretty good. Service was attentive.

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 !

We were on our way to Williamsburg and happened upon this place. We were the only ones there mid afternoon. Very friendly staff, food delivered quickly. We were pleasantly surprised. Looked like they had some nice desserts as well.

Landed at Richmond airport at noon and did my TA search while at baggage claim. This is a nice rustic, country theme restaurant located just outside RIC. Don't let the plastic plates and utensils keep you away. I had pulled pork, mac and cheese, green beans, corn bread, banana pudding and...sweet tea. Imagine that! They have 3 BBQ sauces but... More

I am very impressed with the quality of the food served. The smoke ring was very nice with a perfect balance of flavors for both the ribs and the chicken! Wish we had one of these quality restaurants closer to our area keep up the good work! 👍
