Buz and Ned's was suggested to me by a co-worker. Whenever anyone would ask "Hey where is good barbecue place"? Without a blink of a eye he would respond "Buz and Ned's". I decided to give them a try since he raved about them. So for are dinner and a movie night, my other half and I decided to try the location off of West Broad Street (Use to be Fuddruckers for those who are Richmond Natives).
Location- Very easy to spot and easy to get to. You are allowed to make a U-turn at the stop light if you are going West on Broad.
Self seating- The West Broad street location allows you to pick your table (you will see this again).
Space- Normally when we go out we ask for a booth. Since this is seat your self service the only opening we had was a table. It was nice to sit at a table and not feel like you were in the way.
Good Food- I opted for the jumbo beef rib platter with french fries and collard greens. To me the ribs were huge. I had a total of seven and took four home. The greens were awesome. Come to think of it I liked them better then the main dish and would go back for that reason. The ribs are excellent re heated. I wrapped them in aluminum foil and added some ice cubes for moisture and they were awesome. I think they tasted better second day.
Con's- As with anything, what goes up must come down.
Self Seating- Self seating sounds really nice until Tada no one is getting up.
Hour wait- After placing the order we waited a little over an hour to receive are food. Why? Well your food is not placed until you give the waiter or waitress your ticket. So until you find a table and someone comes to your table to pick up your receipt, your order does not exist.
Disorganized- Once you give the waiter or waitress their copy of the receipt it is every woman and man for their self. They do not give you any numbers to put on your table or even a buzzer. People were walking up to tables that already had food, and giving out orders to the wrong tables. It got so out of hand that they started calling people over the intercom and waited for the person to wave their hand. Really bad when you have someone ask you for your first and last name so they can make sure they have the right order for your table.
Price- Two meals and two drinks came to $57 not including tip. Speaking of tip. Make sure you have cash. You pay before you receive your meal so the tip is not included.
In all Buz and Ned's was okay and I would try the original location (BOULEVARD). Would I recommend this restaurant to a friend? Yes but do not come on an empty starving stomach.
