Red Hot and Blue serves up sweet southern barbeque in a casual but spacious setting. Considering how many independent and small chain barbeque restaurants seem to pepper the DC area, Red Hot and Blue stands apart from most others in that you actually sit down and casually enjoy your meal instead of ordering it to go. The music-inspired memorabilia against crimson deep red walls is cute without being kitschy, and standard fare like pulled pork sandwiches and award-winning beef barbequed ribs are offered alongside other southern fare like fried catfish with slaw and their famous gumbalya - a tasty blend of gumbo and jumbalya.
