I got the Smokehouse MAC-N-Cheese. It was just good, it was not as good as the Smokehouse Brisket Burger! The burger is the whole reason Iโ€™m giving them a 5 Star rating. The fries and pasta salad were good too. He atmosphere was really nice. I was seated, along with another couple, in what seemed like the back where we kind of got fo ... read more

Cynthia and her staff are awesome. Great happy hour, food (wings and pork rinds are out of this world), and people. I go here several times a week - itโ€™s that good.

Great service and the best wings I have ever has. The St. Louis ribs were juicy and just fell of the bone with perfect flavor. Highly recommend. Great beer selection with good local microbrews and one from the Pacific Northwest from my home state. Will be back here next time I am in Richmond.

Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. The owner Cheryl came out to ask personally if we liked our meal. She'd tried a new recipe for her chicken and wanted to know if we liked it. We didn't, we loved it!

I got the full rack of ribs, Mac and cheese, and collard greens. May be the best collard greens Iโ€™ve ever had, and the ribs were delicious with the dry rub. Prices were good. I definitely recommend this place ... read more

We sat in the bar area because the restaurant was full, and the bartender was great. Best wings I've had in Richmond. Mac & Cheese with turkey sausage was tasty but almost too rich--we took most of it home and used it as a side with other meals, which worked very well. The mixed drink we ordered ended up being very sweet, but my part ... read more

The staff was wonderful. The food was good. The macaroni and cheese was disappointing. The meats were delicious, flavorful and tender. They ran out of collards before 2:30 on a Saturday.

Great food. The owner told us the history of Jackson Ward, and how the names of her drinks were inspired by the history of sever black civil rights leaders and entertainers. They play great music, and the environment is relaxing.
