Being steady clients for great ribs, burgers, and potato salad our own hearts were broken when they shut their doors. The other franchises may still be open but here it is shut down. So saddened by our loss, it was a good place to relax...More

Not a "OMG THIS IS SOOOOO GOOD" kind of place, but we got here once every few months. What IS good is the service, always friendly and prompt. We like the sauces and their beans are quite excellent. If you have a hankering for BBQ,...More

The best sweet tea around! I'm from Georgia and it is impossible to find decent sweet tea in Maryland...except at this place. Burgers are great and cooked to order.

I've been going here for years. It's a nice pitstop (get the pun?) on the way home after having spent the day sightseeing in DC. For me, it's easier to access than the original in Arlington, Love the added BBQ flavors and the variety of...More

Red Hot and Blue is a full-service, casual-themed restaurant chain and caterer featuring delicious award-winning ribs, Memphis-style barbeque, smoked wings, and Southern sides and desserts. The atmosphere is steeped in legendary and contemporary blues music and delivers a large dose of Southern hospitality in a fun and entertaining dining environment. History: The first Red Hot and Blue restaurant opened in Arlington, Virginia in 1988, started by Lee Atwater, Don Sundquist and friends. Don Sundquist was from Memphis and served in the House of Representatives and as governor of Tennessee. The late Lee Atwater was an amateur blues musician and political figure that managed George H.W. Bush's successful race for the presidency. These men were friends who longed for authentic Memphis-style barbeque and great blues music. Unable to find that combination anywhere in the Washington, DC area they decided the only way to get it done was to open a restaurant of their own. The Memphis-style barbeque chain celebrated its 25th Anniversary in 2013 by partnering with a charitable organization at 24 different restaurant locations. The yearlong celebration culminated in the presentation of thousands of dollars in donations to local charities. The Name: The name, "Red Hot and Blue" is taken from the title of D.J. Dewey Phillip's radio show that that aired on WHBQ-AM in Memphis, Tennessee in the 1950s. This radio show launched the careers of Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash and broadened the audience for artists such as BB King, Muddy Waters, Robert Cray and Rufus Thomas. Red Hot & Blue Dine-In, Take-Out and Catering. Hickory-smoked Memphis-style BBQ, Ribs, Wings, Beef Brisket, Smoked Chicken, Seafood, Full-service Bar, in a Family-friendly atmosphere with a heapin' helpin' of Southern Hospitality!
