Brisket is really good. Best BBQ, no. Lots of great BBQ places IMO

ZZQ has amazing brisket (and you pay for it too) but I don’t find the rest of their food to be anything special. Not sure they are even the best Texas style BBQ place in Richmond. Alamo BBQ in Church Hill has really good brisket and better pork than ZZQ.

The prices at ZZQ may have something to do with that. When you charge that much (almost as much for a half pound as other places charge for a pound) it should be much much better than the next guy. And ZZQ just isn’t that much, if any better. Frankly I think their really high prices have something to do with the reputation - if you can charge the most you have to be the best right?

I personally like Kings Barbecue in Petersburg. Vinegar based sauce, their pork is very very good. Sliced or minced outside is where it’s at.
