I like a good BBQ restaurant that has a full menu. This place met my expectations. Overall, the food was a little above average, and the quantity was excellent. But I was most impressed with their 5 alarm hot sauce. I like it hot, and this sauce made the grade.

While I hadn't done my full research and didn't expect a full on bar atmosphere, the food was more than worth it. Well, at least the main courses, the sides were a bit problematic as the mac and cheese had a drinkable sauce. Still, if you don't mind the atmosphere, defiantely a worthy addition to your list.

This is The Halligan Bar and Grill in Short Pump. As soon as you walk in you know that this is a FIREFIGHTERS heaven. The place is owned and operated by a firefighting family. The food is GREAT with large helpings and reasonably priced. It really brought back memories when I walked in and saw the fire truck was one... More

This place on the 17th Street Farmers' Market is my home pub when in Richmond. It may be small, but it has A LOT going for it. The firefighter theme and decor is the first thing you notice (I learned that a 'halligan bar' is a firefighter's tool, and they have one hanging on the wall) - hard to miss... More

Dont be discouraged by the outside appearance the food here is amazing. We tried the Battalion Burger, The Chief, and the Memphis Chicken sandwich with fries and an order of hard sleeve cheese.. the portions are huge and my favorite was "The Chief".. Eat here you wont regret it, the staff is super friendly....

We had a delicious lunch here today. We had friendly service and received a good value for our dollar. The slaw that we ordered with our burger was exceptionally good.

Nice place downtown that may get lost in the shuffle. Great BBQ and cold beer what else could you want? Service was fast and friendly. Got the pulled pork platter and it was delicious and hot with great sauce. Plan on walking or get an Uber to drop you off but it'll be worth it.

It looks very divey inside but service was great and the food was really awesome. The brisket sandwich was juicy and full of flavor, and the hush puppies with sweet butter were wonderful. Prices are very reasonable and service was very attentive. I definitely plan to go back.

The smoked chicken wings were a delicious pairing with the tasty draft beer on tap. Great food and a great bartender in this Irish pub, can't wait to go back for the ribs, & happy hour. Try the green beans, they're very good. Small bar but worth the stop.
