Little Richards has the best BBQ in Mt. Airy. The menu offers a nice selection of entrees and side dishes. Great food and prices.

Service was slow because they were busy but the chopped plate was great. Very little fat. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for the authentic. The portions are large.
