    Mac n cheese is glorious. Don't be dissuaded by the jalapeño ... Not spicy. Pulled pork and ribs are awesome too. Smoke ring and everything, real deal.

    I'm from Texas and am very picky when it comes to saying if something is good or not. But, after several friends suggested it, I came. I was really missing TX. I FOUND IT!!! Just like home. MUST TRY!!

    BBQ here is really exceptional - quality only small "stands" with their own slow smokers can rival. PS: Collards are excellent, what a surprise.

    The brisket sandwich is piled with slices of gloriously smokey meat cut just the right thickness. It's finished off with some onions, jalapeños, and their tangy sauce on a toasted bun.

    Best BBQ in Richmond, hands down. The BBQ sauce makes the meal, the brisket is tender and the jalapeño Mac-n-cheese is just as good as everyone says. Eat here and you won't be disappointed.
