Headed to Carlisle for BBQ with the family. (6 total) The restaurant was fairly full but the the staff quickly moved two tables together for us. Everybody's meal was excellent. The pulled pork, the chicken and especially the brisket. They offer a variety of BBQ sauces. We really enjoyed the spicier sauces. We tried the loaded fries for an appetizer.... More

The pulled chicken BBQ was the best! We got takeout but you can eat there too. They have several sauces to pick from...all good. We had the platter...all was good, ribs were a bit overcooked, but overall we would go back!

I would like to eat at a new place in Carlisle, but Redd's is so darn good that we find ourselves needing to return there! This time, we took our son and he loved it. We ordered massive amounts of food. The bill was so reasonable. Because it was good Friday, I ordered just salad with Mac and Cheese on... More

After stopping at Dickinson College, we were looking for a good place to have lunch. Barbecue being a family favorite we chose Redds. We were not disappointed. My husband and son had the two meat sampler and I had the pulled pork sandwich. After leaving, my husband turned to me and said that he thought our waitress Kena was one... More

Very good bbq and very attentive staff. They up sold without seeming pushy, were very educated on the products and genuinely excited about the restaurant. I am staying in the Carlisle area temporarily long term and have been here 3 times in 3 weeks. Probably go again next week.
