Americans do Independence Day big, with big booms, big parades and big food. Long a Fourth-food-favorite, BBQ feeds us right. So, the timing is perfect for a new BBQ hot spot, the newly opened Pecan Penny's Bar-B-Q. With the Fourth falling mid-week, what better way to celebrate a magical five-day weekend? Head to 113 East Main Street for Texas-style barbecue and American-style fun.
First, the meat. Enjoy smoked deliciousness like brisket, pulled pork, baby back ribs and chicken. And, following the Texas-style, the good stuff arrives sans sauce. After smoking with a dry rub, you may like it just as it is. Or, you can sauce it up on your own with choices from other barbecue styles, like Carolina vinegar, Memphis sweet sauce, Kansas City barbecue and more.
Next, choose your sides like a Southerner. Collard greens? Check. Mac & cheese? You betcha. Kool-Aid pickles? Why not? Finally, you will surely want to wet your whistle. Luckily, you'll find a full bar, local beers and signature cocktails made with good stuff from local Watershed Distillery.
The vibe is minimal, in keeping with the urban location. You can choose to sit indoors at cafeteria-style tables or on the picnic-style tables on the front or back patios. And, garage doors open to let the outdoors in. All of this goodness is brought to Cbus by the restaurant group behind the Walrus and Olde Towne Tavern. Their hard work is evident in this latest location. So, get some Southern goodness right in the heart of Buckeye country.
And, after you've loaded up on BBQ goodness, consider a stroll through the 'hood for more foodie fun. Hit the Walrus for another drink and some live music. Then wander around the corner to Hadley's for a a boozy milkshake dessert. And, if you need to refill your tummy with some food, remember Mikey's Late Night Slice is well known for it's ability to sustain you through your late-night fun.
