A crowd of us dropped in recently and ordered a variety of foods. I had the pulled pork sandwich with slaw which was very good. Great BBQ flavours. As others have reported this is an outdoor eatery on benches - nothing fancy, but good value,...More

Man, this place is the bees knees. Not much on ambiance, order at the window and sit on picnic tables. BBQ is just downright delicious. Sauce is tangy but won't melt your drawers the next day

Don't expect much ambience here, it's a pick up window place with covered outdoor seating. The food more than makes up for lack of decor though. Brisket, Ribs and Pulled pork were all perfectly cooked and had a ton of flavor. Sides were of equal...More

5 of us took a break from our business meeting to eat lunch from Alamo. We heard the Train Wreck was excellent, so 5 Train Wrecks later, we confirm it is outstanding! Choose your BBQ meat - need brisket, pulled pork, or chicken. Start with...More

I had the Pulled Pork with Slaw, cornbread with honey butter and an order of the Collard Greens. Although the greens had a bit too much vinegar for my taste, I inhaled everything else. The pulled pork was seasoned and smoked to perfection with just...More

Outdoor seating only. Ribs and barbeque sandwiches are worth a visit. Pick a nice day to sit outside or get a take-out order.

By far the best barbecue and brisket in Richmond! Side choices are amazing too! Portions are plenty. My wife and I's favorite place to eat when we are in the area. Right outside of Downtown as well

We stopped by here before we left Richmond and it was definitely worthwhile the detour. It is a small place with simple outdoor seating. The meet was great. I ordered the pulled pork and it was very good.
