ZZQ's Barbecue Named Best in State By Food and Wine Magazine

Posted By on Wed, Jul 25, 2018 at 2:20 PM

Food and Wine magazine has named a Scott's Addition restaurant, ZZQ, as one of the best barbecue spots in the country, naming it to an "all-stars" list.

In the article, "The Best BBQ in Every State," David Landsel writes:

Really, what isn't Richmond suddenly extremely good at? Add Texas-style barbecue to the list of musts in this food-mad town with the spring debut of ZZQ, in the excellence magnet otherwise known as the city's Scott's Addition neighborhood. Don't be fooled by the impressive venue—partners (in business and in life) Chris Fultz and Alex Graf might have had some help getting to where they are right now, but this isn't just some corporate joint, capitalizing on a trend, this is the real deal. Fultz and Graf started small, impressing first one small group of lucky folks and then another, with their backyard pop-ups—some time later, we're now here, and here is—well, it's delicious.

Also try: Virginia and barbecue go extremely far back, even if the scene has done less than it might to distinguish itself in modern times. In Fredericksburg, stop at the classic Allman's, while in Petersburg, you have King's, around since the 1940's, serving up oak-smoked top round, chicken, and pulled pork shoulder.

Now you're making us hungry. If you haven't tried it yet, ZZQ is located at 3201 W. Moore St. and is open Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. - 10 p.m.
