My wife and I eat here about twice a year and have never been disappointed. Being cheapskates we use our Entertain coupons, 2 for 1. The pulled pork is great, especially with any 2 side orders yo might choose. Service is good and there is plenty parking.

I live right behind this restaurant and I can only smell the wonderful BBQ so many nights before I have to go and join in. My favorite thing is the potato salad. I always get the pig squealing combo and it's perfect every time. The price is good and I'm always full when I leave.

Everything is outstanding on the menu but my favorite is the ribs with the dry rub and a side of potato salad - outstanding! If you join their PIG club you will get a free meal on your birthday and periodic coupons. They also have different meals on special different days of the week. You simply cannot go wrong with...

This is the real deal right in Sterling Heights. If you're looking for real barbecue and just not some sauce ladled over the meat, then this is place. Real barbecue smoke for hours. The ribs brisket and chicken are all excellent. They also have a private room for private parties.

Extensive menu of BBQ and plenty of food on the plate. The BBQ is nothing special, but they serve a good amount. I had the nachos and there was enough for 3 people. The bowl of soup was huge, tasty and unfinishable.

Dined at this restaurant many times. They have ribs prepared several different ways which are all good. They have several specialty barbecue sauces which are out of this world. The seafood sampler is wonderful. Soft drinks come in a personal pitcher. Eliminating the need to bother the waitress for refills. Arrive hungry. I find the portions to be more than... More

I work in the area of this restaurant, and have visited it 2 times in the 6 months I have been in the area. The service and food are both average. The restaurant is not particularly clean and the service and food don't make me want to come back for more.

We needed to meet some friends from out of town, and turned to TripAdvisor for suggestions of kid-friendly restaurants near their hotel. Thanks to all of your reviews, we went to Red Hot and Blue, and what a great surprise. Friendly, great with kids (larger groups sit in a separate room so we weren't bothering other guests), terrific food, and... More

Neighborhood restaurant that specializes in pork - pulled, sanwiches, ribs, you name it. AND...they have all sorts of sauces to go with. My favorite - Sufferin' Sweet. They do have other choices for entrées and they are good - but the pork is super! Prices not bad either. Drinks come in jugs...no mayor Blumberg restrictions. This is MIchigan!

I have eaten at this restaurant on several occasions. The meal selections of bbq and other sauces are the best. We also enjoy their great potato salad and often times after a great dine in experience we will take two quarts of potato salad home. We enjoy this potato salad many days afterwards.
