Little Richard's has been around a while. Way back, the BBQ was really good and you had a feeling that the owners really cared about the customers being it was a family business. Since then, times have changed. We eat out a lot in Clemmons and never eat there unless it's pre-arranged by someone else. The last two times I... More

We had passed through Clemmons, NC years ago and stumbled on Little Richard's. We had remembered the good food so when we were nearby once again we sought out Little Richards. We should have just followed our noses to the smokey goodness! The parking lot was full at 12:30 when we arrived for lunch which is a good sign. My... More

We finally had the opportunity to try Little Richard's, and we weren't disappointed. They serve Lexington style BBQ. We experienced friendly service and the BBQ was excellent. Restaurant provides table service and prices are quite reasonable for the amount of food that you get. We definitely will be back. Wish they were open on Sundays!

All the locations are clean & comfortable. Nice & attentive staff. Adequate parking provided as well. Every item on the BBQ plate was delicious. This BBQ ties in with the famous Lexington barbeque. Heavily recommended for a great meal for true fans of BBQ.

The BBQ is ok. The BBQ slaw needs a makeover - too sweet for my taste. Thought it would be better since the parking lot was packed. Maybe the beef brisket is better. Maybe I'll return to check it out? Maybe I'll look at other BBQ joints in the area first.

We stopped by the Clemmons location on the way to the NC mountains --- and like other Little Richard's BBQs we've visited, this one was super. We got baked potatoes stuffed with cheese and pork chopped BBQ (they were huge - see picture), plus fried okra and hushpuppies --- all steaming hot, fresh... just fantastic. The atmosphere is casual, homey,... More

Little Richards is know for it's Lexington style bar-b-que but also has great dinner plates and salads. We took some out of town guests here a couple of years ago. They asked to go back next time they came. Simple decor and friendly staff make it a favorite for locals.

This place has changed a lot from the hole in the wall it used to be when I was growing up, but the barbecue is still as good as ever. The menu is huge these days, but you should definitely order one of the pork barbecue plates.
