Grandpa Eddie's Alabama Ribs & BBQ - Richmond (far far west end)

OK so actually it is out in Goochland county, just a bit past 288 on US 250; at the site of the old Bungalo Grill.

I initially decided to go when I read about it in the local paper. After doing a little online research, I found a number of good reivews. Since I took a day off today, I figured, what the heck.

We ordered some Ribs, a BBQ Sandwich, and some kielbasa appetiser, all to go. The menu also offers a limited availability KC burnt ends sandwhich, but they were out. Bummer, I will be back to try that though.

Ok, First the ribs.

Well, I am not sure.. but I think I like the ribs better than Buz and Ned's - which is high praise for me. The sauce is not as sweet, a bit more spicy, the meat seems a bit more smoky/savory. In any case, since it is about a 30 minutes shorter round trip than Buz & Ned's, something tells me I will be hitting it for takeout a lot. And I like it much better than the ribs at Hickory Notch (which I found to be too mushy, just personal preference)

The Pig Sandwhich

My wife had this and said it was slightly too bland and more than a bit too vinegary for her taste. She tried my ribs though and agreed those were great :)


Well, not everything went perfectly, its still a fairly new place. Apparently there was a mixup, and I got an extra side of fries (which I don't generally ever eat). Too bad, I was really looking forward to this almost as much as the burnt ends sandwich that they were out of.
the ribs were good enough that I didn't care too much though.

I have heard that the desserts hee are great, especially the peanut butter pie and the Donut sundae, but since we were going for a picnic, we passed on that.

They do have a decent beer selection for a small Q joint, and a decent wine selection as well. They have a very limited website, but it does list their menu.
