About

On WeddingWire since 2024

Self-taught pitmaster Chris Fultz is originally from Texas and grew up with Central Texas barbecue. After moving to Virginia, he found a passion for learning the craft of smoking meat and met Alex Graf, his pitmistress, in 2011. This duo later founded ZZQ in 2013, creating a blend of the techniques and flavors of Central Texas with the local influences of Central Virginia.

ZZQ Texas Craft Barbeque is a locally owned and operated small business based in Richmond, Virginia. Located in the heart of Scott's Addition, this restaurant offers award-winning meats, sides, and desserts all made in house by an extremely talented group of wonderful humans callex the ZZCREW. ZZQ operates on a sold-out business model with offerings available from 11:00AM until 6:00PM unless sold out sooner.

Over the last 10 years, ZZQ has also provided exceptional wedding catering services. Chris, Alex, and their team strive to provide meats that are perfectly smoked with ideal sides and all the fixins. While the simple yet complex menu items are truly exceptional, the staff and level of service are unmatched. Come for the meat, stay for the hospitality.

Peace. Love. ZZQ.

It is their mission to bring the same love, energy, and hospitality that is experienced at their restaurant on the road to help celebrate your special day. They always deliver. Going above and beyond is simply what they do best.

Amazing food, even better service!

Jason and his team were absolutely amazing for our wedding. Super professional and communicative. We got married at my family’s farm with absolutely no infrastructure other than a tent and a generator. ZZQ took care of everything and even accommodated some specific dessert requests we had. And of course all of our guests absolutely raved about the food. Can’t recommend them highly enough!!

100% Recommend!

My wife & I recently had our wedding catered by ZZQ, and we could not have had a better experience. The food was phenomenal (we regularly heard that it was ‘easily the best wedding food’ people had ever had), they were efficient in getting meals to guests, and the staff were great to work with - going out of their way to help make our day better. We can’t thank Jason & his team enough!r
