BBQ Restaurants

BBQ in Richmond VA

Richmond region’s barbecue scene has experienced steady growth, nurturing longstanding institutions like Q Barbeque while making room for fresh-faced newbies putting their own spin on the ‘cue game, such as Pig and Brew and Oak and Apple. Today RVA has reached definitive status as a ‘cue pit stop along the East Coast, with much help from the Texas-tinged smokehouse ZZQ in Scott’s Addition. The restaurant has garnered national attention in Garden & Gun magazine’s “Guide to the Best New Southern Barbecue Joints” in 2019 and also Thrillist's list of  “The 33 Best BBQ Joints in America.”
