Last week TKA traveled to the West End to check out Buz and Ned’s new location on Broad Street. Having never been to that location, we thought we’d give it a try!
Buz and Ned’s has been serving Richmond great barbecue for over 20 years out of their small shop on Boulevard. Buz Grossberg, Virginia’s undisputed barbecue pit master according to many, hickory smokes his tender, juicy spare ribs. Buz and Ned’s secret family recipes have been passed down for over 150 years, and their spare ribs reaped national recognition from Food Network in 2007, defeating Bobby Flay’s recipe in a Throwdown.
So how was our experience? Delicious and satisfying. Hours of smoking delivered tender, juicy and flavorful barbecue, and the open, rustic barn atmosphere, complete with metal chicken and pig décor, really brings everything together. Buz and Ned’s knows how to deliver, and judging from the busy Wednesday lunch crowd, they’re here to stay.
Having visited and loved both Buz and Ned’s and Alamo BBQ, we’re torn. Which one is better?
There’s only one way to settle this dispute — a rib-off. Stay tuned…
