We went here for dinner one night...The place was busy, but it was not over-crowded. It took forever to get our food, and when it arrived, two of the meals were cold. My husband's food (the ribs) were awful. No one asked how the food was, barely said 2 words when they brought the bill. We would not go back.

We stopped in for lunch and a drink. The food is decent. We had mozzarella sticks and a turkey wrap with fries. Service was prompt, even though the place was packed and staff was limited. Beer selection is ok.

My sister and I had lunch here. The atmosphere is fun. The bar is a fire truck. The menu has enough variety. Mostly BBQ, burgers and wraps. The appetizers and the beer choices seem to be the draw. We got off to a bad start with my coffee being so cold the cream floated on top. The waitress was friendly... More

We went during lunch. We were one of three others there. The bartender was our waiter. He was very friendly and helpful with the menu. He was quick and attentive. The food was very good and came fairly quickly. The decor is anything related to firemen. Photographs and patches adorn the walls. Not an interest to me but didn't dislike... More

We stopped here for a drink on our way to dinner. The beers were good and they gave us nice hot pork rinds to snack on. A touch we enjoyed.

I picked up some ribs from the newest Halligan today, just to try some with my son. The ride home was interesting smelling the smokey aroma. I already knew they didn't cook any BBQ at the store on Lakeridge Parkway but it was rather disappointing to get home and find ribs cooked to death and be so bland. The weren't... More

I was excited that The Halligan had opened an express location in Ashland area .One should never get over excited. I ordered a 1/2 rack of ribs,a lb.of BBQ and a lb of brisket.The packaging used for takeout was ridiculous.The only thing appealing was the sauce and I had to beg for that.Keep in mind I bought almost 3 lbs...

The hush puppies were delicious - not too greasy, fried just right. The cornbread had an interesting flavor, not sure what was added, but the chipotle honey butter was an interesting twist. The chili was good and a bit spicy. My husband liked his meal, but didn't love it. The best part was the decor with the firefighter theme. There... More

What a great bar with great BBQ. I had the BBQ platter with excellent pulled pork and brisket. The sides; potato salad and collard greens were equally good. A good choice if draft beer and a GREAT waitress, Ashley. While the wine wasn't great, it IS a BBQ place. If I get back to Richmond, I'll go back to Halligan's.
