In our continuing quest to find new BBQ joints in town (because the spouse loves him some barbecue), tonight we visited Buzz BBQ. It’s a fairly recent addition to the area, plus we received some coupons in the mail so it had two things going for it right out of the gate.
The dining room isn’t really set-up to hold many people, but if there is a free table I really recommend it because the employees are so friendly and they stop to chat with you, explaining their process for cooking the meat. They served everything in styrofoam containers and with plastic forks, so it is a very casual dining environment. If the dining room is not available or you would prefer to eat at home, they have carry out and delivery options available.
They serve 4 kinds of meat: chicken, beef brisket, pork ribs and andouille sausage. The BBQ dinners come with meat (or a combination of meats), 2 sides and a roll. The side dish choices are coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans, mixed veggies and corn on the cob. They were more than happy to substitute a side salad for my two sides though. It was a good salad with fresh crisp romaine, cucumbers, tomatoes and a light sprinkling of cheese. Truthfully, I wasn’t that blown away by the rolls (probably because they were made from refined flour and I have a personal vendetta against that evil), but Kevin thought they were good.
I ordered the chicken dinner and Kevin had the 2-item combo, brisket and sausage. The chicken was super moist and flavorful and provided me with plenty of food for dinner, plus leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch. The meats in Kevin’s meal were also incredibly tasty. Everything was enhanced when dipped in the cup of BBQ sauce they provided.
BBQ dinners range in price from $9-$16. They also serve sandwiches that range in price from $7-$10, larger dinner salads and soups. They serve shakes, ice cream and pie as well, although we didn’t have room for dessert.
The restaurant is kind of hidden in a shopping center, but is well worth finding. The food was excellent and the employees are fabulous. I was told to stop eating my food with the fork and knife and just pick it up. “Don’t worry about being ladylike, you’re part of the family now!”, I was told. They even packaged up our leftovers for us to take home, without us even asking. Now that’s good service!
