  • Virginia BBQ
    Virginia Barbeque first opened shop in a 100-year-old home in Ashland. The building's long history helped convey the sense of community roots that founder Rick Ivey wanted to express in his eatery's friendly, wood-smoked meats, and fresh-made sides. Now with locations across the state and a slew of accolades from the local media, Virginia Barbeque's mission to build a devoted following and pave a state highway with barbecue sauce is well under way. The restaurant's signature meats begin with a dry rub in a house spice blend before they take a 12-hour stint in a rotisserie smoker filled with hickory wood. Then, cooks hand-pull the meat and slather on house-made Virginia-style red sauce or North Carolina-style vinegar sauce.

  • Hawk's BBQ
    Hawk's Fish & BBQ's menu slathers appetites with succulent barbecue, golden-brown fish fillets, and juicy chicken entrees. Hawk's sweet and savory house-made sauce, which blends vinegar and a tomato base, dresses each barbecue dish for its debut in an exclusive belly. The signature chopped-barbecue-pork sandwich ($3.89) enthusiastically applauds as six spicy chicken drummies ($4.29) perform a synchronized dive into a bath of barbecue sauce, hoping to earn a perfect 10 from mouths. Cuisine anglers reel-in southern-fried lake trout and whiting from a sea of flames, channeling them into the two-piece fish dinner, which teems with a school of sides such as slaw and onion rings ($7.29). The house-made Frankie Pie—a sweet-potato tart ($0.99 each)—will reward mouths for not publicly drooling.

  • Ronnie's Ribs, Wings and Other Things
    Lauded for its succulent pork ribs on Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate and ABC’s The View, Ronnie’s Ribs, Wings & Other Things supplies feasters with expertly executed barbecue classics. Originally founded on the parking-lot grounds of a former gas station, the eatery has since moved to a larger 300-seat location, where 50 TVs entertain customers as they dine. According to the Food Network feature, pit master Ronnie Logan flavors his pork ribs with a mixture of dry rub, brown spices, paprika, and secret ingredients. Each rib rests atop a hickory smoker, which cooks the meat with smoke and heat so no errant flames burn a customer’s meal or convince someone the Olympics are nearby. Along with ribs, pulled-pork sandwiches, jumbo chicken wings, and beef brisket make it hard to ignore the alluring scents drifting about the air, which is also filled with traditional sides and drinks. The family-run Ronnies also caters large familial or corporate events.

  • Alamo BBQ
    With its earth-toned stucco and red-clay tile roof, Alamo BBQ's mission-style building seems more at home in Texas than in Richmond, but that's precisely the point. A Texan flag waves over the small eatery's outdoor patio, inviting diners to dig into feasts of barbecued pork and Southwestern tilapia tacos. All meals are served alfresco under the patio's cozy white tent as the chefs inside prep beef brisket in traditional Texas style: slow cooked and stirred with a spoon whittled by Willie Nelson. Half and full racks of dry-rubbed st. louis spareribs join inventive entrees, such as barbecue quesadillas or the texas train wreck with barbecued meat over mac ?n??cheese and baked beans. Country-style sides are nearly hearty enough to stand on their own, including fresh collards with or without pork and cowboy beans with brisket that Joseph Wcates of Style Weekly praised as "exceptional." Cap off meals on a sweet note with desserts of pecan pie and gourmet brownies.
