We've been trying ribs all over the USA and have found Buzz & Ned's to be the best. The restaurant itself is very casual, order at the counter and you collect your meal at the counter when your name is called. There were plenty of...More

Great way to end our visit to Richmond. The small meal was the perfect size for lunch. The barbecue was tangy, the corn was tangy, and the coleslaw was tangy. We feel fortified for I-95!

This is a restaurant that has a lot of BBQ-atmosphere....wooden tables, a bathtub contraption for hand-washing, someone singing the blues on the sound system, large metal containers of tea, that smoky smell, etc. But, you come for the food: order placed at a register, you...More

I do have to agree with Jay M. If you don't call ahead of time, you'll have an extremely long wait. But as far as group seating? Possibly.

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.
