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.

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! 👍

If you are looking for fancy anything, do not bother stopping in. If what you are looking for is a great meal, made from scratch on site, cute decorations and wonderful owners, this is your place. Two chicken and one pork BBQ meals, with a side and drink. Portions were more than we should have eaten but, it was wonderful.... More

We took a detour off of I-95 based on the reviews of Hillbilly Red's. If I ever found myself on 295 again, I wouldn't hesitate to stop by, but I wouldn't go all the way from I-95 for it. We had the bbq pulled pork sandwich, which was quite large. The pork was tender and flavorful. The cole slaw was... More

This one is sort of strange, you order at the counter and sit down, your meal is brought to you, Good BBQ, great hush puppies too, I did not like the arrangement of ordering first as explained above, it just seemed strange to me
