We were in the area and my husband suggested we stop here for a late lunch as he wanted a vegetable plate! I thought that odd for a BBQ place, but he was certain they would have them. I'm not fond of BBQ, but I...More

Stood at the entrance waiting to be seated to the point where we almost left. Waitress kept calling me, "Honey," and "Sweetheart". I am neither. It makes me nervous when a server doesn't write down the order and reproduces it by memory, although she did...More

There is nothing bad about this place but I walked out thinking no more than "that was ok". There are many items on the menu so you have diverse choices. The "house" beer was very good and easily the most interesting option among the draft...More

Great BBQ, blues atmosphere- just as described on their website. An extensive BBQ menu, albeit a little pricey, the plates were huge portions. Our drinks came in mini pitchers which was fun and different. The host and server (Dale) were very friendly and attentive. Food...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!
