Service was pleasant. Catfish was good. Fried okra was good. Ribs were good. French fries were good. Lots and lots of food. What's not to like!

Best baby back ribs in the area. The ribs are cooked to perfection. The sides were also delicious. It's a good casual dining experience.

Typical 'down home' decor. We got the pork BBQ. That comes without sauce. You add your own from a bottle on the table. The 'shoot the pig' game at the bar was a little noisy. The potato salad was OK and the Cole slaw the same. Hubby's beans good after he added hot sauce.

Make sure they get your name right! If not, your stuck for the next hour lost and confused. I don't know why people praise the food here, everything was mediocre.

The food was delicious but the service was slow and they misplaced our order. It wasn't easy to find parking.

I have been to Buz and Ned's and the food was great but this time that wasn't the case. We both got the pulled barbeque and it tasted like something out of a can! I was sad! The onion and cucumber salad and the hushpuppies were good though. I think sometimes it's just hit and miss. Not always consistent. :(

Best beef ribs in the world....actually all ribs!! (Smile) outdoor seating and very few tables inside. They have all types of old time sodas to wash down awesome food. Hush puppies are so good, all you can do is shake your head. Parking is good too. I will always go back no questions asked!!!!

Sometimes this place is sooooo good, other times it's just so-so, but we hit it right this time. Pulled pork sandwiches were tasty, grilled shrimp was tasty, beer was cold. An enjoyable dinner.

I ordered with Orderup.com and the wrong order was delivered (after over an hour from placing the order). I called the restaurant to ask about the missing item and incorrect meal delivered. They refused to reimburse me because of using the third party site and they would not deliver the correct items ordered. They said I would have to come... More

Management response:

Hi Ksink, One of the things that is a bit confusing about 3rd party delivery services, such as orderup.com, is that if there's an issue, they are the only ones who can resolve it. Because Buz & Ned's doesn't have delivery drivers, we have nobody who can deliver, or re-deliver your meal. Since many of the drivers from 3rd party... More

While Buz has been dishing real barbecue in Richmond since 1992, our first brick-and-mortar location on Boulevard opened in 1995. We've also had the honor and privilege of being featured on some of television's top food shows. We are thankful to our loyal fan base that keeps coming back year-after-year. We opened our Broad St. location in 2012 and we look forward to bringing the same barbecue tradition to the West End.
