Discerning carnivores, take heed: we’ve got just the spot for you to pig out in style. Smokebelly BBQ’s chef-driven ‘cue and lively, music-filled atmosphere is just the place to satiate your meat shakes.
Mmmm, barbecue. Is there any Southern culinary tradition so steeped in smoky, saucy goodness? We think not. And though we find ourselves surrounded by countless restaurants paying tribute to the pork, there are few where we can do so in style, not to mention enjoy a night out on the town afterward with a full belly. Which is why we’re thanking the lawd for gracing our town with a gem like Smokebelly BBQ. This is barbecue with some class: a place where we can experience the majesty of grilled cheese bites with a well-made cocktail in hand; where we can consume heaping platters of slow-smoked pulled pork with one of their 20 draft options in the confines of a plush, green leather booth with our nearest and dearests.
Lucky for those of us that are filled with pork lust, Smokebelly just got a brand new chef, a brand new smoker, and revamped their menu to really show off everything they can do with classic BBQ- they’re quite gifted at compiling the perfect meal of chef-crafted succulent pork products for two. You’ll start things off with an appetizer to share, from their BBQ Tapas offerings. Whether you pine for their Porky Pig Mac & Cheese (which we do), or some sweet, spicy and delicious Blistered Peppadew Peppers, your appetite is sure to be wet. Which is fortunate, because you and your dining partner will each have your choice of their entrees. Whether you’re carnivorous cravings lead you to their plates, to a piled-high sandwich, or the lighter (but filling) array of salads, you’re sure to be well taken care of. Could we endorse their Delta Double platter with any more fervor? No, no we could not. Let us tell you, dear scout, first you’ll have your pick of two of either the smoked turkey, BBQ chicken, pulled pork, sausage, or brisket to slather with one of Smokebelly’s varied BBQ sauces. Oh, and of course they’ll be accompanied by your pick of two sides. (Hawg heaven indeed.) The sandwiches offer the BBQ experience between buns, and we can’t stop thinking about the Smokebelly Stack - smoked pork, lean sliced brisket? Yes, please. If you're looking for something a little lighter, their BBQ Quinoa Bowl or Chopped Succotash Salad may do just the trick.
