“Good barbecue”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Nice place! Full salad bar, really good barbecue as well. Large, comfortable bar area. Friendly staff. This is a good place to bring the family or business group.

“Reliably Good BBQ We Overlook”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

I've been to Extra Billy's on and off over the years. I usually get the pulled pork or the brisket, and on occasion the Texas sausage. The sausage is good, but too mild when compared to what I've had in Texas. On my last visit the brisket came out a bit too dry, but it was tender when compared to other attempts outside of Texas.

That said, I'm no Texan or Texas snob. I actually prefer tomato-based BBQ of the sort common in KY, TN, and (at one time, Virginia). Extra Billy's pork, ribs, and sides are standouts at this place. The meat is moderately smoked (more would be better!).

I wish the place got more attention. Richmond needs more good barbecue places, and this is one of them. I like the old-school BBQ restaurant atmosphere. They need to step up their game with the brisket, the sauces, and the beer (too much mega-swill and not enough real beer) but overall, I keep coming back to Extra Billy's for decent, if not stellar, smoked meats.
