Still a stellar place!

Went there yesterday for lunch. Service was unusually good, but it was nearly empty. Food was the same as always—delicious and a bargain. They have the best bbq brisket outside of Texas, unless you drop by my house when I decide to make it. The “personal” size onion loaf, which is more than enough for 2, seems to get bigger every time. The pig squeal was oustanding as usual according to my wife. I am from North Carolina so I am very particular about bbq pork.

The potato salad leaves the skin on the potatoes, so we always skip it. They have four different bbq sauces. No matter what the menu says, ask for the sauce on the side—I skip it all together. The fried okra is exquisite. The ribs are the large St. Louis style, either wet or dry rub. They do not have baby back ribs. (Ugh!) The catfish is also good, as are the corn muffins. You can order side dishes separately off the menu, but they will always substitute at no extra charge so if you don’t like their menu selection to accompany your meal, just tell your waitron you want something different.

Easy to park on the street for lunch during weekends, during the week it’s usually more crowded for lunch from all the office building around. At night, there is free parking in the garage.

Biggest complaints: they never give you enough napkins—bbq is sticky and gooey, no matter what kind you order. Tthey don’t have any real beer on tap, like Budweiser or Miller, just frou frou Yuengling, light this-or-that and such junk.

This is the original Red, Hot & Blue, and still the best bbq restaurant within 300 miles of the Washington Monument, bar none. BTW, we have been to other Red, Hot & Blue restaurants. They are very consistent, this is just the closest one to our house. We go at least a half dozen times a year.
