Drawing on Southern traditions, Red Hot and Blue’s delectable menu satisfies barbecue cravings with smoke-ringed eats and authentic Southern recipes. Pit masters stoke low-and-slow fires kindled by hickory logs to smother top-quality meats in a smoky infusion, granting tenderness and depth of flavor normally only found in funk albums. Like a puppy’s nose, the restaurant’s St. Louis–style ribs come in wet, dry, and sweet iterations, each wooing taste buds with toothsome hunks of meat laced with secret-spice blends and accompanied by barbecue beans and creamy coleslaw ($14.99 for a half slab; $21.99 for a full slab). Fresh-made burgers and sandwiches range from beefy patties heaped with pulled pork and onion-ring straws ($9.49) to golden-fried Delta catfish fillets with tartar-sauce sidecars ($11.99). Cooks slather pulled shoulder with a poultice of Mojo mild sauce before piling its pork onto a soft bun aside Grandma’s potato salad ($7.99). Protein-pairing platters sync sea and land with fried shrimp and ribs ($14.99) or ribs and catfish ($14.99), all of which wind up in the drink thanks to chilly tidal waves of freshly brewed sweet tea.

Chefs use grass-fed beef, cage-free chicken, and steroid-free pulled pork that hail from sustainable sources to craft a bounty of tortilla-wrapped treats that take their names from the likes of Caddyshack, Fletch, and Seinfeld. It's this dual mindset of serious food and irreverent attitude that tinges every one of the eatery's southwestern morsels, from the Art Vandalay burrito to the John Coctostan quesadilla. As the kitchen staff crafts their daily batch of guacamole to join the lineup of six zesty salsas, diners choose from a list of more than 20 ingredients to fill out the entree that will soon be conjured before their eyes. Because dishes are made to order, each finds easy customization for vegetarian, gluten free, and low-calorie diets, and the absence of microwaves, trans-fats, and MSG keep eats wholesome. Meanwhile, a complimentary accompaniment of chips and salsa turns portions into full meals faster than an industry-grade blow-up ray.

Red Hot & Blue draws from many corners of the Southern map to bring together a mix of classic barbecue and traditional southern fare served amid an array of handpicked blues memorabilia. Red Hot & Blue cooks top-quality meats atop a smoky bed of hickory logs where relatively low temperatures and long cooking times infuse eats with succulence. The meaty mélange encompasses three ways to order ribs ($22.99 for a full slab, $15.99 for a half-slab): wet, slathered with mojo mild barbecue sauce; dry, rubbed with a blend of Memphis-style spices; or sweet, dripping with a more-sugary sauce and a never-ending stream of compliments.
