Love Bennie's BBQ. They smoke it themselves and pile it high. Best BBQ sauce in the world. Love this place.

All of Benny's food is amazing, but their wings are the best I've ever had. They are crispy, smoky, meaty, and saucy all at the same time! Benny's also offers a nice selection of local beers which never hurts.

We tried to have dinner at Benny's last night. It was dark. The legal notice posted on the door indicates to me that Benny's has not paid their rent. Many of the restaurants we enjoy have closed recently.

This is true. The new owner didn't pay any bills. 22 years down the drain.

Best Barbecue in Richmond hands down! None of that sloppy too much sauce so you can't taste the pork.

Maybe, if you're a regular, this place works, but as a first-come, I was very disappointed. It was a Saturday night at 5:30 and they had a large party, so maybe that explains it. From walking in and not being seated or told to seat...More

Excellent BBQ, sauces, and the greens are perfect. Everybody loved the slaw and baked beans and we were pleasantly surprised to find delicious slice rolls available for takeout.

As far as I'm concerned, Benny's has the best BBQ in RVA! If you think I'm kidding, try the wings! Smoked, fried, sauced, crispy and meaty. The chopped pork and hush puppies are also to die for!

Our food was really good. We had the smoked beef. Waitress was friendly and very helpful. The side dishes are all handmade on sight and we're all very good.
