Had lunch on a Tuesday, a good choice. I had chopped beef and dirty rice, both excellent. Someone else had sausage plate, another had chicken, both said was very good. Sausage a bit spicy. Good BBQ joint.

The ribs, brisket, beans, potato salad, all of it.... mmmmm so good! It's not really in the tourist part of town, but completely worth visiting to try some REAL BBQ

There's a few other barbeque restaurants around the area this one to me has the best food by far and prices for sure.

Drove by Reds once and thought perhaps we should look elsewhere as it is not much to look at from the outside. Decided to go ahead and give it a try anyway. Ordered a rib sandwich with beans and fries. The service was friendly and the food was very good. Looks can be deceiving, but the smoke from the cooker... More

There is nothing fancy about this place, but the food is great! I had a pulled pork sandwich that was very tasty and it came with a huge serving of pork. Bottled soft drinks are available and I believe they also serve beer. Take out is available but there is a seating area should you wish to eat at the... More

Reds is a great place in Natchitoches. Please note the hours. It is generally only open until 4 or 5 pm. For dinner at night, I suggest Grayson's Bar-B- Que. it is about 7 miles from Natchitoches in Clarence, Louisiana. It is not in Natchitoches proper, so it has no reviews. It is super easy to find - you just... More

I met cops , State Police and business men plus local retired regulars. Hard to find a place to park, and with reason. Best ribs! Great sauce,... More

You might miss this place driving by. Disguised as an old(er) gas station in need of a little paint, this Chow Mecca beckons to those looking for outstanding BBQ. We ordered take-out Chipped beef for a social function based on local recommendation; We were not disappointed. Our order was placed late the previous day and the caring folks at Red's... More

This is a small restaurant, well hidden off the main strip however it’s well worth a visit the ribs were tender, juice and delicious (I eat mine without sauce) the flavor of the smoke and the well-seasoned meat were all I needed to more than enjoy my meal, I hope everyone that visits Natchitoches, takes the time to find Red’s

I like to think that since I'm from a barbeque town, I know the stuff pretty well. This is by far the best barbeque I have ever had, hands down. Don't be scared by the appearance of the place. It's an old gas station, and it looks like it, but the food is amazing and the staff is very friendly... More
