Good barbecue. It's no secret that this is a chain restaurant, but the wait staff is extremely friendly and red-hot and blue sits down a good portion a barbecue to fill you up. Good food for a good price. Nothing wrong with that.

If possible, I would give a 2.5 rating. This visit was mediocre with slow service for getting our drinks and food even without a lot of people in the place. We tried the ribs for 2 which came with 4 sides and a nice sized...More

I came here really for the potato salad, and it didn't disappoint. The rest of the food was bland and the service wasn't very good. The waiter got my order wrong. They give you large portions.

Great bbq. Better than ever. Tender pulled pork. Great potato salad and baked beans. Not as busy as it has been in past years---more new competition? Friendly service.

Good portions served hot fit what we wanted. Beans were great, heaping extra potato salad. Pulled pork was bland by itself but the sauce spiced it up. Speedy service

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!
