As the holiday season approaches, there’s no better way to share the love of authentic North Carolina flavors than by catering your Christmas gatherings with Little Richard’s BBQ. The mouthwatering goodness on your table is the result of generations of love and dedication to original recipes. It imparts a comforting “at-home” feeling that warms hearts.

Generations of authentic Lexington-style recipes are the heart and soul of Little Richard’s, a legacy that now thrives at five locations. Their commitment to preserving North Carolina’s culinary roots is unwavering, evident in every detail of their operation. This dedication translates into the meticulous preparation of fresh pork shoulders, which are hickory smoked for a staggering 16 hours, using the “old-fashioned way” passed down through generations.

The story of Little Richard’s began in 1991 in Winston-Salem. Over the years, their business expanded to include Clemmons, Yadkinville, Mt. Airy, Walkertown, and the newest addition, “Bar-N-Que” on Stratford Road in Winston-Salem. Today, each Little Richard’s location is a testament to family ownership and operation, carried forward by members of both the first and second generations of the Karagiorgis family.

For a limited time, Little Richard’s is presenting their annual Holiday Special for just $100. This package includes four pounds of BBQ, two half gallons of sides, a dozen buns, and a bottle of their signature BBQ sauce. It easily serves 10 people and is a perfect addition to your holiday dinner table. The Holiday Special is available for pick-up throughout the holiday season.

Catering options abound, offering a variety of delights, including chopped BBQ, BBQ chicken, smoked wings, brisket, or ribs. These main courses are accompanied by a selection of classic sides that include BBQ slaw, cole slaw, baked beans, collard greens, green beans, mac and cheese, pinto beans, and potato salad. Beverages and desserts are also available. If you opt for full-service catering, an on-site staff is available for buffet-style service (please note that there is a 75-person minimum for full-service catering).

The holiday season is a time to celebrate traditions, and few traditions in North Carolina are as cherished as the art of barbecue. Little Richard’s BBQ has mastered this tradition to perfection, offering a holiday feast that brings families together around the dinner table.
