Red Hot & Blue first opened in the Washington D.C. area 27 years ago. Three politicians and a PBS reporter created the first Red Hot & Blue restaurant because they couldn’t find any authentic Memphis-style barbecue on Capitol Hill. Since its start, Red Hot & Blue has grown into 22 locations in 6 states: Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. The authentic Memphis-style barbecue caters weddings, business events and any type of gathering from 20 to 5,000. The restaurant’s mission is to “serve up only the best quality food with a heaping dose of Southern hospitality in a fun, casual atmosphere surrounded by blues music and memorabilia.” For more information, visit http://www.redhotandblue.com
