What a public relations nightmare this place is. Bought a groupon and never got to use it before it expired. Had to complain to groupon and receive a refund. For weeks I called the business number "rons personal cell phone" and it just went to a voice mail that was always full and couldn't even take a voice mail. The... More

Ronnie's has the best ribs that I've had in RVA. However, I don't know if they're still in business anymore as they lost their spot in Shockoe Bottom. I'd love to know where they are, it's a loss if they're gone.

As all the other reviews mention, Ronnie's is located in a parking lot under a tent Saturday and Sunday only. If you are going towards downtown on Main Street, Ronnie's is right before 25th street. Now while my ribs were being packaged it was mentioned by the owner they are moving to a new location near Route 5 in an... More

Ronnie's Ribs has some of the best BBQ ribs I've eaten. Get yourself a half rack with a couple of sides and be prepared to delight in true BBQ bliss. Ronnie and his son Darrell aim to please. You can't truly experience true Richmond BBQ until you've tried Ronnie's. Bon appetit!

We learned about this place from the Food Network show Best Thing I Ever Ate! and it was correct - they make the best ribs. It is basically a trailer in a parking lot, but don't let the look of the place turn you away.

This BB place is located in a parking lot. I had a bisque sandwich combo with cole slaw. The meat was super tender and tasty (is a little spicy). I enjoyed it. But the cole slaw was awful. I also tasted the ribs. They were really tasty. And they have an amazing rub. I think that this place is a... More

Having had ribs all over the country I can honestly say the ribs here are some of the best. I've been twice this week, everyone has been as friendly as can be, cant wait to visit again next time I'm in town. Featured on Food Networks best thing I ever ate!

Not being a Southerner, I have a pretty open mind (so I'd like to think) on what is good barbecue. Well, here in Richmond, you have your Kansas style people, your Carolina style, your Memphis style, etc........I really don't worry about which is which, but if it is good or not. And Ronnie's......it's just good!!!! Based on the vinegar-like odor... More

Good barbecue at a walk up trailer. Decent pork barbeque sandwich and ribs. Baked beans were better than expected. Service was friendly.
