WIth a Rock and Roll these this friendly place serves mainly ribs. Generous portion the full rack with three different sauces and two sides was a very filling meal. The ribs we a little 'reheated tasting' maybe because we came late in the afternoon. The service was excellent and the prices good.

While it wasn't bad it just wasn't my kind of BBQ. The Brisket is more well done than I like, the beans & coleslaw were good though! The beans were a little sweet and the coleslaw not too vinegary. The bread that came with it looked like a golden puck but surprisingly was delicate and sweet inside. Test the BBQ... More

Not as good as it used to be and service was slow. Won't be going back in the near future. Used to like it much better.

We moved into our neighborhood about nine years ago and were looking forward to having a decent pulled-pork sandwich and gave Red Hot and Blue a shot. The sandwich was dry and the sauce grocery store bottle quality, if that. Last night, we decided to give it another shot, being that their brand featured guitar playing pigs. We love a... More

I came here for lunch with a colleague and it became my dinner as well! I was so stuffed. I had the Delta Combo (Sausage, Ribs, and Pulled Pork Sandwich). The ribs were not as tender as I liked, but the meal as a whole was very good. I loved the ambiance and The Blues playing. Safe to say, I... More

My sister and I had lunch here. I had eaten here before and was not particularly impressed. They seated us by the window in a booth with a lumpy, uncomfortable seat cushion. And I do hate that plain old iced tea is over $2.00 a glass. My sister had the chili and it looked like it had brisket in in... More

Just so you know going in. It's not Texas BBQ - it's Memphis style. Memphis is about the sauces and focuses on pork ribs. Anyone can make a sauce to cover up their mistakes - it's like hiring a painter to cover up what your carpenter and contractor messed up. Anyway - the meat was dry. At our table all... More

Red Hot & Blue is a very good barbeque place. The food is really very good. Unfortunately, service, at least for larger groups, can be quite bad. The ugly part is the way the management, at this location, has blown our group off the last two times we have tried to have a Sunday lunch with them. I will acknowledge... More

Description
Red Hot and Blue is a full-service, casual-themed restaurant chain and caterer featuring delicious award-winning ribs, Memphis-style barbeque, smoked wings, and Southern sides and desserts. The atmosphere is steeped in legendary and contemporary blues music and delivers a large dose of Southern hospitality in a fun and entertaining dining environment. History: The first Red Hot and Blue restaurant opened in Arlington, Virginia in 1988, started by Lee Atwater, Don Sundquist and friends. Don Sundquist was from Memphis and served in the House of Representatives and as governor of Tennessee. The late Lee Atwater was an amateur blues musician and political figure that managed George H.W. Bush's successful race for the presidency. These men were friends who longed for authentic Memphis-style barbeque and great blues music. Unable to find that combination anywhere in the Washington, DC area they decided the only way to get it done was to open a restaurant of their own. The Memphis-style barbeque chain celebrated its 25th Anniversary in 2013 by partnering with a charitable organization at 24 different restaurant locations. The yearlong celebration culminated in the presentation of thousands of dollars in donations to local charities. The Name: The name, "Red Hot and Blue" is taken from the title of D.J. Dewey Phillip's radio show that that aired on WHBQ-AM in Memphis, Tennessee in the 1950s. This radio show launched the careers of Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash and broadened the audience for artists such as BB King, Muddy Waters, Robert Cray and Rufus Thomas. Red Hot & Blue Dine-In, Take-Out and Catering. Hickory-smoked Memphis-style BBQ, Ribs, Wings, Beef Brisket, Smoked Chicken, Seafood, Full-service Bar, in a Family-friendly atmosphere with a heapin' helpin' of Southern Hospitality!
