The history of Richmond, Virginia in photos
Boy this brings back some memories! My parents and I used to have lunch quite frequently at a Bills Barbecue - in the 70s no less! :) One thing I don't see on this menu though is their famous and delicious hand-made limeades!! Boy THEY were out out of this world! Anyway - sorry to hear that Bills is no more - wonder if anyone would ever be able to resurrect the franchise?While thinking of old menus from long-established and pretty famous Richmond eateries - here's one if you could ever find it would also evoke MANY memories for folks I'm sure - a menu from the old Angelos Hot Dogs! We used to go into the one on 6th street north of Broad (the 600 Building stands there now)-- went in there for YEARS to get their chili dogs - WOW!! :D I do miss those old places from my childhood!
When I first moved to Richmond, I stopped at a Bill's. The staff was rude and the food was less than mediocre. I never went back. It's really too bad that a Richmond institution phased out, but if this was typical of service and fare, then I completely understand why.
