First of all, I am from Eastern NC. If you don't know, there is a huge difference in Lexington style BBQ and Eastern NC BBQ. Little Richards is excellent Lexington style BBQ. I love the course chopped. Hush Puppies are good. Service is awesome. I am surprised that some other BBQ establishments in Winston-Salem are rated higher. Little Richards is much better than Pulliams or Mr. BBQ. Bibs is very good, but a different style.

Thank L D

No credit cards. No checks. Don't be put off ... just be forewarned. Juicy, tender BBQ served "Lexington" style, a side of crinkle-cut French fries, and sweet tea. That's a taste of North Carolina heaven in Winston-Salem. The menu includes other standards ... burgers and wings ... but I can't vouch for them so I'll stick with raving about Little Richard's pork BBQ. I ordered a "coarse chopped" sandwich and I want to tell you, there were chunks of meat that proper etiquette would have required a fork and knife. Service is always friendly and fast. The atmosphere is definitely laid back and comfortable. And if you've had "one of those days" when you don't even feel like getting out of the car, just hit the car horn (after 4 pm) for old fashioned curb service. If you happen to be there on a Friday or Saturday, try the BBQ'ed chicken served with hush puppies.

Dinner #3 of the BBQ tour. I stopped in just before closing. And they still welcomed me in to sit. Had the pulled pork sandwich, potato salad and of course sweet tea. This is Lexington BBQ style so the sauce is more of a dipping type. Good flavor but I think you have to like vinegar to like Lexington BBQ. Sandwich came out fast and it had some cold areas of meat. But over all it was good BBQ.

Being a NC native - I've had all kinds of BBQ - and this is as good as any I've had!! Excellent quality, very fast service and reasonable prices (cash only, though :(
Eat in - or take out: either are great!
