We had to ask for carry out trays to bring our meals... More

Greater, had poor attitude. Tried to sit 6 adults at a booth for 4, we requested a table and she didn't appreciate us asking. The food was NOT good. Two adults got the brisket, one with the ribs combo. Brisket is 'supposed to be tender and cut on a bias', it was a slab of fatty meat, dry, and the... More

Love, love, loved Little Richards! It is outside of the town of Mt. Airy which was a bit too touristy for me.

Both my teenage foodie daughter... More

Took my grandmother here while visiting and had their brisket platter...nice size portions and good variety. Everything we had was really good! Turnip greens and mac n' cheese were terrific! Definitely would recommend! Southern style BBQ with a little Texas mixed in for good measure!

It was my son's birthday, so he chose to eat at Little Richards. Our waitresses was extremely friendly and helpful. My son and I got the BBQ and it was great! My husband got the chicken salad, which he loved. Fried okra is my favorite! We have ate here several times and never been disappointed.
