Richmond Virginia BBQ Ribs

RobertM Apr 1, 2010 10:50 AM

D.C. hound will be working out of Richmond for a few months off and on and would like to find what the local hounds consider the towns top joints for pork ribs.
Not the Red Hot & Blue, or Famous Daves, just the local home grown shops.
Full blown dressed St Louis style, or unfancy full half slab's.
Not interested in Baby Back ribs though.
My gals 90 year old father calls those "Kangeroo ribs".

Thanks for your advice.

    Down in Shockoe Bottom across from Millie's Diner is a place called Ronnie's Ribs. You can't eat inside, it's basically a window for takeout, a smoker and a few plastic tables. The ribs are big, plentiful and delicious. I also saw it featured on the Food Network.

      You should check our Benny's at Hathaway Plaza. They have some of the most unusual ribs I've ever tried. Peanut butter based sauce that is absolutely incredible. You'll be licking the plate as well as your fingers!!

        Q's has some good ribs. The Alamo does ribs on saturdays. They are off the smoker around 1-2pm.

            If you do a search on the Mid Atlantic board, you'll find lots of suggestions, such as this thread. It was started a long time ago, but has a lot of pertinent, more recent posts down near the end.
