Went here while on a business trip. This place was filthy! The blinds were covered in dust there were flies all over the windows buzzing by my head. We counted five. The menus and condiments were covered in what I assume was sticky BBQ sauce. Looked as if the place has never had a good thorough cleaning. Food was probably... More

Always very good comfort food and quite good smoked meats of many varieties. Service is good and the "home place" decor is nice...it fits the food.

The food is always mediocre, including the sauces. We've tried this particular restaurant a couple of times and it never seems to be a good value. It's pretty pricey for some less than impressive BBQ.

Place is a former fast food restaurant and despite the pretty cool old school rockin-blues decor, and the decent service, the food just somehow is only one step above generic.

The food was great, but the restaurant itself seems a little down in its heels. I had never eaten at the restaurant before, but had enjoyed their catered meals many times before. The food did not disappoint.

Red Hot & Blue never disappoints. The pulled pig and dry rub ribs are the best. Add some potato salad and its worth the drive.

The food is great. I had melt-in-your-mouth beef brisket and savory sausage. I broke down and ordered a plate of hush puppies which I love. Service was thorough and friendly. However, this restaurant doesn't have much beyond salads for the calorie conscious.

Overall Red Hot & Blue is considered our middle of the road, average bbq. Most things on the menu are fine, not great. I have always been a fan of their potato salad, but it has not been that great lately. They do have a 5 star sweet tea, and plenty of it. I like the dry rub on the... More

Ok, this will be my first review from the restaurant mealtime being reviewed. We have enjoyed various RHB stores over the last 20 years. This was our first time at the Warrenton location, necessitated by extreme hunger near the end of a 10-hour family road trip. A bit disappointed to hear that last week they dropped the corn chowder, but... More

If you're not already familiar with Red Hot & Blue, you should definitely try it. It is a locally based chain (MD, VA, etc) but they do a really exceptional job. The BBQ is wonderful - I particularly love the pulled pork and pulled chicken. The ribs are great too. Lots of good sides including very delicious potato salad. The... More
