My husband and I stopped here for lunch on our way home from vacation. The staff was super friendly and the food was excellent. The BBQ wasn't to smoky, the way we like, and the homemade chips were outstanding. A must stop and eat. We will be heading back when we're in the area again.

Little Richard's BBQ was delicious. I had chicken wings, yum, my husband enjoyed a chopped pork plate and we both sampled the ribs. Every bite of food we put in our mouth was delicious. When you go make sure you get the hush puppies with your meal, they were great.

Stopped in on the way home. Wednesday night March 22, 2017. We were greeted upon entering and served quickly. We both got the pulled BBQ, the portions are HUGE ! hushpuppies, salad, and home made chips with ranch dressing. We had the Hickory sweet sauce on our pork.

Not much of a surprise based on the reviews. We had the 2 meat platter. Nothing but goodness in the brisket and ribs.

Greater, had poor attitude. Tried to sit 6 adults at a booth for 4, we requested a table and she didn't appreciate us asking. The food was NOT good. Two adults got the brisket, one with the ribs combo. Brisket is 'supposed to be tender and cut on a bias', it was a slab of fatty meat, dry, and the... More
