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.

We had a wonderful experience here. The food was great and the service even better. The decor is fun and interesting, as is the story behind the bar and grill - a tribute to the members of the fire service. Highly recommend!

This is a pretty good place to hang out with friends, drinks are good and the food is average but ok. The fire truck in the center of tha bar (Short Pump location) is visually appealing but has the effect of splitting the bar into quarters, so you don't really get to see whats going on on the other side....

Ate there on a weekday and left full! Two firefighters made the trip to celebrate our birthdays and enjoyed the large portions and the friendly staff. Well worth the 3 hour trip. Stop by if your in the area.
