Dot's Back Inn says: "The Best and the closest to the track"

This place should be on the top of your list for Richmond. It is a favorite of many in the NASCAR garage. I know it is also a hot-spot for several people I work with in racing. It's also a favorite of Tony Stewart's crew chief Darian Grubb.

A true neighborhood hot-spot serving up a heap-load of classic diner dishes. GREAT stuff. Dot's Back Inn was also featured on Triple-D. If you don't know what Triple-D stands for, get a TV! Guy Fieri is the man.

Ok... this place is a must in Richmond. It's not hard to find but barbecue this hard to find most certainly is!  This should be your order: Beef Spare Ribs with Bourbon Apples, cucumber salad and green-chile-cheese-cornbread.  Mmmmm.  Eating on the picnic tables outside makes for a unique experience.

Ronnie's Ribs Wings & Other Things
Bill Baker CAN'T be wrong. The editor wrote in and strongly suggests that followers hit Ronnie's joint in Richmond.

The full slab is approximately 4-pounds of trimmed ribs! Oooh baby! They are spiced with Ronnie's own rub and sauced with their yummy homemade sauce. There is not much on the menu but what they do have, they pile high on your plate. We like it that way!
Open Monday thru Sunday (Daily)

Night races make it harder for us NASCAR people to get dinner on the road. The Black Sheep has great lunch and dinner but what we want to highlight is their breakfast. Creativity indeed! Roast Duck Hash, Salmon Hash, Bayou Breakfast (featuring catfish) makes this a breakfast foodie find for sure.
