Description: Red Hot & Blue is celebrating 25 years of good food, southern hospitality, and blues! Spend the night out (take the night off?) with a heapin' plate of our award-winnin' Memphis-style ribs -- cooked and smoked to perfection, with a helpin' of Grandma's Homemade Potato Salad while listening to the cool blues. Our signature ribs, pulled pork, and beef brisket are cooked low and slow - guaranteed to be fall-off-the-bone delicious. Busy days can be complemented with our Take-Out, served with our signature Southern hospitality and a smile. Call it in, pick it up, and enjoy, all in the comfort of your own home. Planning a big event? From a fancy wedding to a backyard barbeque, parties of 200 to 2, Red Hot & Blue can offer the best. We provide full service and deluxe catering options; let us do all the cookin' for you, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy some ol' southern barbeque. Our heapin' portions will have your party stuffed full of delicious slow-smoked meats of your choosing. If you're hungry for barbeque, you're hungry for Red Hot & Blue.

“Good quality, fast service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

This is not "gourmet" BBQ but consistently very good. Nice place to stop in for a satisfying meal with something to satisfy everyone (including 5 year olds). The pulled pork and the beef brisket sandwiches are our favorites. The potato salad has a creamy consistency that may not please everyone but the sweet potato fries (preferably without the sugar and cinnamon for me) are good. The Brunswick stew with an assortment of meats is tasty and filling. A nice Sam Adams on tap is the right accompaniment.

“Good BBQ for a chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Like the variety of sauces--some of the meat can be a bit dry. Wish the rubs were a bit more assertive! Still, a good feed!

“Family Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

It's an average family chain restaurant that serves BBQ. They are trying to please too many people for the chain. Good, but not spectacular BBQ.

“Large portions, great table waiting, fun for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

My family and I have been here several times with various groups of people and enjoyed the environment and food every time! We also like the extra large glasses providing ample water and lowering the need for refills.

“Love That Piggly Pork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Red Hot and Blue is one of our favorite barbeque restaurants in Northern Virginia. We go to both the Leesburg, Herndon and Annapolis locations on a regular basis. We both love the pulled pork sandwiches and my wife always orders the beans. I think their potato salad is some of the best in the world. Don't forget to sign-up for the birthday and anniversary club where they send you a certificate for a free entree for each occasion.
