Description: While Buz has been dishing real barbecue in Richmond since 1992, our first brick-and-mortar location on Boulevard opened in 1995. We've also had the honor and privilege of being featured on some of television's top food shows. We are thankful to our loyal fan base that keeps coming back year-after-year. We opened our Broad St. location in 2012 and we look forward to bringing the same barbecue tradition to the West End.

The best freaking BBQ in Richmond, yeah i said it! The brisket sandwich is tender and always loaded with enough brisket to easily have made 2 sandwiches. The pork pulled bbq is to died for, and they always give you more than you know what to do with. The spare ribs are smoky and delicious. I forgot to mention they... More

This is most likely the best BBQ Outside of Memphis. I've had BBQ all over the South and especially in both of tag with Carolinas and Tennessee. Well, the BBQ in the Carolinas tastes like garbage compared to this BBQ and only a couple of places in Memphis Tennessee taste better than this. I barely need any sauce because it's... More

Every time I go through Richmond I stop for Buzz and Neds. One of the best BBQ rib and chicken places I have ever eaten in.

Be careful when eating your BBQ sandwich, one of our chicken BBQ sandwiches had a bone in with the meat. Staff had started to offer a replacement sandwich and then back tracked since the sandwich was almost finished when the bone was discovered. The flavor of the food was great, but be careful eating, and don't expect staff to care.

Sorry to hear you had that little something extra in your sandwich. All of our meats are handpicked from the bone, but on that rare occasion, we will miss a little piece of human error - but we do hope the extra attention comes through in the taste and quality of our food. If there's anything else we can do... More

I am not big on BBQ and went with a group on a business trip, but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was awesome, the prices were reasonable, and the service was incredibly fast. I couldn't believe that with all the other patrons and our group of ten+, that our orders were up within minutes of placing them. Outdoor seating,... More

Was driving through Richmond and decided to stop in for lunch - lucky us! Great baby back ribs, beef brisket, BBQ chickin, Mac n cheese and sweet potato fries. Great story to the place too - check it out Note: we had seen a homeless vet when we got off highway near restaurant - if you see him, don't forget... More

Food was tasty and good. We ate outside under the tent on a Sunday. Very loose environment with normal friendly people and family around. Good sides like hush puppies and fried okra.

After trying several other restaurants in Richmond, VA we decided that Buzz and Neds has the best Beef Brisket in Richmond, VA. I love to use my own smoker but when I don't feel like being up all night regulating the temperature on our charcoal fire to get the perfect smoke ring I choose BUZZ and Neds all the way.... More

Not much for ambiance unless you like picnic tables under a wholely awning, the food is fantastic. There is no waiter service, just order and pick up at the window but the food is worth it all. It is all part of the experience. Great ribs. Chicken and brisket great too. And the fries!
