The best part of my visit tonight was the lovely hostess from the Ukraine. Brisket ok, pulled pork way to dry........cole slaw was good but the beans were no better than canned. All in all, I will try something other than the BBQ next time.

We used to frequent Red, Hot, & Blue in Northern Virginia when we lived there. Came across this one and decided to eat dinner. Barbeque, potato salad, and banana pudding were all as good as I remember. Reasonable prices and good barbeque! Still a favorite!

We decided to go to this place last night after eating at a place across the street the night before. Out of the 4 of us, there wasn't anyone that was overjoyed with their dinner. The one thing we did all agree on here was the food didn't have much flavor to it (with the exception of the fried pickles),... More

Visited Red Hot and Blue because we drove by, spotted this and I went to Trip Advisor for the conformation :) Was a smart stop. The pulled pork is awesome - melt in your mouth awesome. I'm a cold slaw snob and this is some of the best I've had. The potato salad was amazing. The husband had the ribs,... More

I really like this restaurant. Service is always great. But the BBQ needs rethinking. It's good, but nothing to write home about. The BBQ is often dry and doesn't have the flavor that you'd expect from really good BBQ. On the other hand, I understand that it's difficult to make BBQ for the masses. I don't have the answer. I...

The pulled pork was fork tender and delicious with hints of the wood used to cook it with! The baked beans where spicy and warm on my tounge! And with various types of sauce to try I found the vinegar the best and the dry rub was simply delicious sprinkled on the baked beans and Cole Slaw added a wonderful... More

Had spent the afternoon at the Colonial Escape Room having a wonderful time then it was time to eat. Everyone found amazing meals here. Little early for the dinner (4:30) rush so no waiting. Everyone had a wonderful meal and took home all the leftovers. Would visit again.

We were very disappointed with this stop. It was expensive and it tasted horrible. My husband got the ribs and they had no smoke or BBQ flavor, my pulled chicken was very bland and the service was minimal. I don't recommend this stop if you are looking for authentic Memphis BBQ.

We visited this restaurant for the first time and I saw they had "award winning ribs" so I ordered them expecting great bbq. Mistake! The ribs tasted horrible. No seasoning, they definitely were not hickory smoked as advertised. The mashed potatoes and coleslaw also tasted bad. My husband ordered a brisket sandwich and it tasted like cardboard. I hate we...

I don't like writing reviews like this, but if someone else had then we wouldn't have stopped there or management would have had the chance to fix whatever has gone wrong there. So we went with friends and noticed it was rib fest or rib celebration or rib palooza or something that featured ribs. Perfect, I love ribs. I smoke... More
