Took my grandmother here while visiting and had their brisket platter...nice size portions and good variety. Everything we had was really good! Turnip greens and mac n' cheese were terrific! Definitely would recommend! Southern style BBQ with a little Texas mixed in for good measure!

It was my son's birthday, so he chose to eat at Little Richards. Our waitresses was extremely friendly and helpful. My son and I got the BBQ and it was great! My husband got the chicken salad, which he loved. Fried okra is my favorite! We have ate here several times and never been disappointed.

We were visiting for a couple days and this place came highly recommended by the place we were staying. Very easy to get too. We were seated promptly, drinks were delivered promptly. The Lexington sauce was the best. This is the best BBQ I have ever eaten. The meat was moist and tender. Tabitha was very accommodating and prompt with... More

This is my favorite BBQ restaurant. Great location and atmosphere. There is a large variety of items on the menu. Even non-barbecue items. The food is consistent, affordable and large portions. I've never had a bad meal here. My favorite is the BBQ Salad with hushpuppies and ranch dressing. The staff is friendly, efficient and check on their tables often.

ALL of which are outstanding. The portions are HUGE. With a platter, you get all kinds of fixens (slaw, fries, hushpuppies, etc.). The prices are very... More

I'm not a huge BBQ fan, but there menu offers a few non-bbq items that are really good. My favorite things are the corn fritters and the grilled chicken salad. The salads are huge and you definitely get your money's worth.

We were fortunate to find Little Richards. The food was very good and the portion size was amazing. I had ribs, BBQ pork and Beef Brisket. The service was great as was the food. I will be back.

My wife and I went for lunch on a Saturday, We both had a two meat combo. I had Brisket and chopped bbq and my wife had chopped bbq ad smoked chicken. It was all really good.

You get what you pay for here, inexpensive, large portions, but the food it self is pretty standard. Good if you just want to fill your stomach, if you're looking for lots of flavor in your meal though, this is not the place.
