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.

“Always reliable and satisfying”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Our family has enjoyed Red, Hot and Blue for our "fast food" choice for many years. Simple menu with a few things done well and super fast and always friendly service. Pulled pork and beef brisket is always a reliable choice. I come here after long bike rides on the nearby WO&D trail to replenish. I like the Brunswick stew and a nice Cool Sam Adams beer.

“Going down hill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Having been here on several occasions in the past years, I have noticed that this particular location of the popular Red, Hot and Blue chain is slowly going down hill. During our last visit this was very clear, Staff did not seem to be willing to seat us of wait on us. It took forever before our drinks were served. The traditionally nice pulled pork sandwich was bad beyond belief and the burger tasted it had been in the freezer too long. Giving this last experience it is unlikely I'll be back here anytime soon.

“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We are from the Midwest and have never been to this chain before. The BBQ and the service were good from a friendly waitress. We were there for a late lunch and they were not very busy at the time. I have been to exceptional BBQ places in Memphis and Nashville, and this is not at that level, but is still very good. We had pulled pork, brisket, and ribs. We would definitely eat at this restaurant again if we are in the area.

“Typical Red Hot &Blue”

We stopped here around 4 pm on a Sat. There were only 2 other couples in the place. We got the pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries. Food was good. Service was quick and friendly.

“Can't go to VA and not go to Red Hot & Blue~!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The food is so good especially the pulled pork sandwich, potato salad, baked beans and the onion appetizer. The ribs are just so-so. You get a lot of food for the price! Nice atmosphere. The service has always been good too.
