We made a day trip to Richmond. We started googling and asking a few Richmond Insiders about different places to eat. A bunch of people suggested ZZQ so we decided to check them out. I am so glad we did. We found out that they hold many accolades including top 33 BBQ Joints in America by Thrillist. Once you dine there, you totally understand why.
They are Texas-style so think brisket and beef. So, of course, this is what we had to eat. We started with a beef rib. These are only available on Saturdays and are $26 per pound so be prepared. It is so worth it. It was amazingly good. We also ordered the Tres Hombres which is a sandwich full of goodness including chopped brisket, pork, and sausage and served with pickled red onions. This sammie is not for the faint of heart. It was so good. I think my fav was the sausage. For sides, we opted for the smoked zucchini and tomato and slaw. They were so good too.
If you are headed to Richmond, make sure to check out ZZQ. They are so good. Also, make sure to go early so you can everything you want. It’s located in Scott’s Addition which is a hip little area in Richmond. After we were done with lunch we walked around and got some coffee. It is a great location to spend some time.
