A follow-up and TY on the RVA lunch restaurant recommendations

Gave son the list of places, and he decided on ZZQ.

Holy sh1t, that was a winner.

Knowing we wanted leftovers for son and to bring home to my parents (read: me), for 3 of us, we got: 1 lb each of beef rib and beef brisket, 2 different sausages, and 3 tres hombres sandwiches. Sides were large jalapeño mac and cheese (money), collards (best I've ever had), potato salad, zucchini, and cucumbers. Desserts were 2 pieces of Texas sheet cake (yum) and pecan pie (didn't taste).

(For the money, the Tres Hombres is the answer -- brisket, pork, and sausage, piled up to about 8 inches high)

All **excellent**. Thanks for the recommendations. Downside is, I spent more on that meal than I have some fine dining meals lol -- crazy how much I dropped, but worth it to sample and for his birthday.

We'll be trying the other places on future trips. Once again, TheSabre came through! Thanks to all!
