Again, came because of Trip Advisor, and it did not let down!! The atmosphere is charming. Our waitress was sweet and helpful. The food! You can taste the slow cooked hickory. The ribs were killer, juicy with a nice amount of char. Portions were generous....More

We chose Little Richard's based on Trip Advisor reviews. It's better then expected. Samantha, our server was very helpful. The various bbq sauces make the meats even more interesting. I think I have a new favorite, Carolina Gold. Don't miss this place!
