Stick with tried and true BBQ here. Had salad with pulled chicken, which was just ok. Good hush puppies. Generous soda portions.

From the reviews, one would think this an average, ok restaurant...NOT! The barbeque sandwich was awesome. It came as moist pulled pork, add BBQ sauce at the table to your taste. The onion load was awesome, and the potato salad...whoa, was it ever good! We'll...More

Probably won't go back to this place. BBQ was on the dry side and staff seemed like they couldn't care less if we were there. I've eaten at Red Hot and Blue in Annapolis MD a few times and would probably stop again, this place...More

I travel to Leesburg 4-5 times a year and have always wanted to try this place out. Being a short walk from my hotel, I decided to give it a go this time around. It was a Tuesday night and there weren't very many people...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

It's been a few years that we had a meal at Red Hot & Blue. There is always enough food to take home. Service way very good and quick. Most important it tastes great and doesn't break the bank. Enjoy!

Consistently very good.... For a chain it's one of the bests. Portion size very good. Service very good. And most important, the food is very good. Great casual place for lunch or dinner. It's a 3 times per month stop for us...

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!
