Got hooked on red,hot,and blue in new jersey and this location is as good. The ribs were falling off the bone and the onion loaf...what can I say. The red hot sampler is big enough for a dinner entree rather than an appetizer.

Busy place & rightly so! Great food! 4 of us after the W & M vs Richmond football game. We(Richmond) lost but this place salvaged the day! We had the Ribwich combo, as our friends had been there before. Super delicious & we ordered an onion ring loaf for the centerpiece. Don't miss it! We'll surely return there for Bar-B-Q... More

Hate to say it but this place is only average. The food was good but not hot and while their ad mentions gluten free items, when we asked the server, she did not know what we were talking about.

Stopped here while on a trip. Food came out quickly. Staff was friendly and accommodating. I like the option that they give to choose which kind of BBQ sauce you put on your pork bbq. Baked beans are good. They aren't just sweet, they have a little kick ! Will return !

Had lunch here today! I got the lunch ribs. Good barbecue at a reasonable price. Service was excellent. Love the decor and the blues music. All in all a very satisfying lunch.

Hit this place up because of the reviews I was reading on TA. Big mistake. A few I read mentioned how dry the BBQ is. They were spot on. I knew I was in trouble when my food was delivered from the kitchen covered in sauce. I like BBQ sauce as much as the next guy, but when there are... More

Hush puppies and potato salad were great. Overall we all enjoyed our food. Our waitress was polite and our good was all correct. However, my daughter had to request everytime she needed a refill. I never received a refill. Booths are kind of cramped. Atmosphere isn't anything special. Pricing isn't bad. Again, we enjoyed our food but would've liked a... More

We had good service. Got chicken wings as an appetizer. They were awesome. The pulled pork was good and there were a variety of sauces. The potato salad side was less than desirable. No real flavor. Prices were very reasonable. If I went back I would stick with the appetizers, but probably won't. There are too many other good choices.

My husband and I came to Williamsburg for a short trip. We spent time at the outlets then went to Red Hot and Blue BBQ which was just a short drive from there. Great waitress and service. Quick and wonderful BBQ. We loved the uniqueness of the restaurant. Definitely will be back!

Thank Heather I
