Whether you’re a longtime barbecue lover or merely barbecue curious, you’ll feel at home here, where the motto is "BBQ for all." Chef Tyler Anderson of Millwright’s Restaurant and Jamie McDonald, owner of Bear's Smokehouse and former competitive eater, source their meats from the best farms and prepare them masterfully enough to satisfy barbecue aficionados. But new initiates won’t be overwhelmed by the portions and will find lots to love besides the meat, such as charred broccoli salad with sesame dressing and baked beans with greens.
