The food is really great here. Aside from the meats, which are all mouth-watering good, the sides are also very good. I went there twice for lunch during my business trip, and the only reason I didn't go more was because the portions are so large that I couldn't eat dinner later. The dry ribs are incredible!

I am not a BBQ fan, but I loved everything these guys had to offer! Our office lunch was catered by this crew and they brought us amazing brisket, some of the best sausage I've had ever, great beans, and fantastic potato salad. Without going on forever, I'll just say, this is now my favorite BBQ place...

Always stop here after a day at the Byron as it is convenient and tasty. Brisket and Sausage is the way to go, chased with an ice cold beer, preferably Shiner. The spicy mustard goes great on the sausage.

The s.o. and I stopped in for a late lunch after touching down at DFW Airport. We were there at 1:30 so we were after any lunchtime rush. Our server was prompt and courteous. I had the pulled pork sandwich. The pulled pork was not the moist version but the lean version and was good. The bun was not the... More

We went with a large party (44) and they has us set up in the front and handled our tables perfectly. We could not have asked for quicker service or better trained wait staff. Food was fine, more than adaquate, we would go back without hesitation.

Went here based on Trip Advisor reviews. Not sure why this has so many high reviews. Food wasn't very good. I ordered a combo of both ribs and brisket. Both were flavor less and needed salt. The brisket was dry, very disappointing. I ordered the "dry" ribs since I am not a fan of sugary BBQ sauces. Although the meat... More

We found this place located directly across the road from the hotel we were staying in. We did not want to drive far for dinner, so I reluctantly agreed to try them. I am very picky about my BBQ and I prefer chopped or pulled pork, which they have. More often than not, mostly what you can find in Texas... More

Some of my business associates joined me for dinner at Red Hot & Blue. The food was excellent. No complaints there at all. It seemed more like a sports bar than a fine dining establishment. It was loud and service was slow.
