News - Red, Hot and Blue, Chapel Hill now Jim's Famous BBQ

After 12 years as Red, Hot and Blue, the Memphis-style barbecue restaurant in Chapel Hill is no longer part of the national franchise. Jim Groot, who owned the franchise, is now running the restaurant as Jim's Famous BBQ. A re-review is forthcoming.

Jim's BBQ the same as the old RHB bbq.
We ate the pulled pig sandwich for lunch. the bbq is lean with a smoky flavor.The slaw is decent with minimal mayo, not acidic.The red potato salad very good, one of my wife's favorite things there

i have been since the change...clearly the "chain" part is gone...i was impressed by the addition of the chopped BBQ...they have managed to hit a home run with the Shake me up sauce...what really surprised me was the beef ribs..i felt like i was in the west..they nailed it...

Jim was always nice to me whenever I was there. The catfish was one of the best meals I had there at RH&B I wonder if the catfish made it over to Jim's new menu?
