Raleigh >Red Hot & Blue
This was my first and last experience
at this restaurant.
When we first pulled up there were people lined up outside waiting to get in so we were really excited. It took us about 30 minutes to be seated. The waiter was great and took our drink orders immediately but they were out of sweet tea so we had to wait about 10 minutes for a new pot to brew (but it was worth the wait). Seven out of 12 of us ordered the ribs which we were told "the meat is so tender it falls off the bone". This was not the case at all. The ribs were hard and dry and basically unedible. They were so bad that none of us ate all of them or did we even ask for a take out box. The "BBQ beans" as they were called - were flavorless with big chunks of uncooked bell peppers and onions and definately didnt have any barbarque flavor to them. The bright spot of the meal was the cole slaw and the corn muffins.
I would not recommend this place to anyone if they wanted some good barbarque ribs but I did order some catfish to go and it was very good.
poor excuse for bbq. Over priced, dry, and just not good... we never leave food on a plate and here we left alot... just really bad bbq....don't waste your time or money.
Best Ribs I've eaten in years!!!.
I'm not a ribs guy. In fact, I'm not much of a BBQ person. Sure, I've eaten at all the big spots and even Corky's and The Rendezvous in TN, but never really got into this aspect of Southern cuisine.
Well, I must admit, Red,Hot & Blue changed my mind. A friend referred me to them as his company had used RHB for catering and it was a huge hit. I took his word and ventured to north Raleigh. Man oh man, was I pleased.
The food, beer and vibe was great. I really liked the Blues tunes in the background. They really know how to rock it to Muddy Waters there.
Make sure you try this place!!!
LOUSY. I ate at the Cary outlet once before it was demolished. Red Hot & Blue bills itself as a Memphis style place. My comment to the hostess on the way out was "YOU WOULDN'T MAKE IT IN MEMPHIS! I've had Memphis 'que and it's the only place I've ever been where the 'que acutally lived up to the hype. Sadly, Red Hot & Blue does not. At least, it didn't the day I was there. The food, for both me and my guest, was so overwhelmingly mediocre, I can't believe that me and those others that wrote such glowing reviews were eating at the same chain.
Awesome Food!!!. I hope you're hungry because the portions are huge! I've had the cat fish- Awesome! I've had the Pig Squealin' combo- Awesome! The Nachos are the best in town!!! They're not your average nachos! You can get them with pulled pork, chicken AND their chili on top! Just make sure you save room for the Blackberry cobbler! I also love the atmosphere! Great Blues music and memorabilia! I love RH&B!!!
Not "local" BBQ, but still very good. I grew up in NC, and love the "Q" fixed "eastern" style. This isn't like that. But it is truly delicious if you just keep in mind that's not what they're about.
AWESOME!!!!. Great friendly management and staff. Laidback in a good way. Food comes out super fast, even on a busy night!
not go back. Management told me rude and obnoxious when I complained. He told me not true.I not go back. Female and male employees rude to female customer tables. They not volunteer to wait on tables,rush to get rid of,walk away from tables waiting to gossip with other employees,push crumbs off tables onto floor and not clean up,not volunteer to give menu,to give food,drink,silverware,drinking glasses and bill. Give food and drink,bill and try to run away. Give bill and run away notcome back. And often overcharge and not volunteer to correct it. Bring wrong order and not volunteer to correct. Talk back rude,give rude looks,interrupt, and rush to get rid of. Slow to wait on and not busy at all. Walk away while female guests are talking to employees. Have to ask employee to come back and finish job. Said not want to write down order.Did it anyway.
Superior Barbeque. Very clean. Great ambiance. Awesome menu. Best ribs and pulled pork I've ever had. Can't wait to go back and try something else. Very tasty sauces. Courteous and prompt waitstaff. Ask for Sholes. Lots of TV's.
