Buz & Ned's Restaurant Review: What’s the buzz? You’ll have to search hard for Buz & Ned’s, however, don’t give up. There’s a giant billboard dwarfing it, but one step inside and that sensual smokehouse aroma will tell you most definitively that you’re in the right spot. Some of Richmond’s best barbecue is served at this diminutive eatery, squeezed in next to a car wash and a factory-like building. Ideal for on-the-go eating, this place also offers wooden booths and high tables as well as curbside picnic tables beneath a white tent for anyone too hungry to put off the first bite of hickory-smoked meats. The pulled pork sandwich is a classic example of honest barbecue flavor and texture, but the ribs may be the real champ here, while fried catfish filet and Southwest shrimp skewers help mix it up. Sides include the standard slaw, baked beans and french fries, and Cajun fried corn (seasonal) and cinnamon bourbon apples kick things up a notch. Consider pairing your food with one of Buz’s beers, single barrel bourbons or sipping tequilas. Also located at 8205 W. Broad St., 804-346-4227.
