This place does not have their A-Game on. Some years back, this place would have gotten 5-star rating from me; however, the original cooks left to go elsewhere and the new cooks had trouble making good ribs. Wife who ordered something else was not impressed....More

So this was simply a place to eat. We were not impressed at all. The food was ok. The service was great, we were the only people in the place. I do have to say though that the baked beans were great.

The food was OK. Prices and service OK. Did not get thrilled with the seating or atmosphere. Our waitress was nice. We had fancy drinks which were good. Didnt blow me away but wasnt bad either. The portions were good with the mixed meat meal.

We have been to other Red Hot & Blue locations and this one falls short. The service and food wasn’t that great and we had to wait quite a while for our food. There are other, much better barbecue places in Williamsburg to eat..

We went expecting to have the same menu as we have near us, but we’re surprised that it wasn’t like the ones near us. That being said, the food and service were very good.
