It’s safe to say that few people know great food better than Steve Rogge and Keven McGrath. It’s also true that few people know how to create an exceptional dining experience like they do because they’ve spent their lives working in and running restaurants. Starting out like many others, they’ve waited tables, tended the bars, and washed the dishes - later being promoted to management. They’ve run some of the Richmond area’s business clubs and restaurants like Tiki Bob’s Cantina, Black Finn, and Q Barbeque.
So, in 2012, it was a natural step when they decided to do something they’d discussed for many years, and open the Flyin’ Pig in Chesterfield. They looked at potential locations in downtown Richmond but settled on Chesterfield because they wanted to stay in their own backyard. They are both Chesterfield natives and attended Clover Hill High School.
The Flyin’ Pig BBQ was an early success and gave them the confidence they needed to open Asado Wing & Taco Company in Charlottesville and now their second location of Wood & Iron sports bar in Scott’s Addition.
Unlike many other restaurants, they’ve maintained through the pandemic and think that comes down to something simple - great comfort food and great people. Our menus feature classics with a dash of creativity so you’ll always find something you love and still have the chance to taste something new. And our restaurants are always run by teams who “work their way up” because we only promote from within and never hire managers from the outside.
But don’t take our word for it! Come in and talk to the staff or check out our online reviews. If you’re a Richmond native, you probably already know us. If you don’t, come give Wood & Iron or one of our other restaurants a try. Your first visit will likely lead to many more.
