BBQ is very good. Moist and flavorful. Also has non BBQ items on the menu. Wait staff is very good as well. Gets large lunch crowd. May want to get there early for lunch to avoid waiting.

We stopped for dinner at Little Richards Smokehouse BBQ coming home from the mountains. It's conveniently located right off US-421 at the intersection with US-601 in Yadkinville. The barbecue here is very good - my wife and I both got the chopped pork and we both enjoyed it. I tried the Thai sauce and it very good - different than... More

First impression is this restaurant is looking for an identity. Is it a sports bar? An Applebee's wannabe? It certainly didn't emit local bbq restaurant. However, I have to say that I liked the bbq. Chopped pork bbq is about as good as it gets. Mild smoke flavor, moist, and flavorful. Didn't find a sauce to suit my palate as... More

Traveling from Boone to Durham with a one year old. Needed to stop and get some real food and let her walk around. You could order 3, 6, or a full rack of ribs with two sides. For $7.99, we got 3 ribs. Delicious. Plenty of food. The wait staff was so nice and accommodating to our toddler. Even the... More

My husband & I both tried the beef brisket plate. It was a little dry but had a really good taste. The BBQ sauce was very good with it. Pintos, slaw, baked beans & potato salad were all great and the hushpuppies were too. Not too greasy. Sweet tea was perfect. Staff was nice. Nice place to eat.

I love the brisket and Wings at little richards. Their Brunswick Stew is also fantastic. We drive from the mountains to Raleigh on a regular basis and this restaurant is a MUST stop location.
