Description: 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!

“bacon burgers”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Perfect bacon burgers (served with great fries). Portions huge throughout the meal,leaving us no room for desert. The parking was loaded so we expected a wait...don't be fooled. Our party of 4 was seated immediately. Excellent live music was an added treat ! We came just for the ribs(Ribs with sweet sauce were so tender we didn't need a knife), were taken aback by' the live music of " James Day & The Fish Fry". Excellent tunes!

“It's ok, used to be much better...”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

The ribs used to be really good, not so much now... Beers on tap are cold and good, I recommend the Flying Fish IPA. My brisket tasted like pot roast which would be fine if I ordered pot roast. The corn bread was good...

“Okay ribs, not what it used to be”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Some people go for the live entertainment, we go for the dry ribs. Last couple of visits, not as good as they used to be. Still, it's an okay spot.
