Blog Tour: New Market BBQ #dineHSV


brisketAt the last leg of our food journey, we found ourselves at New Market BBQ.  The restaurant is a red-roofed wooden building, surrounded by barrels of brightly colored flowers.  It is the kind of place you see and you know immediately that you will be served excellent Barbecue, and I am glad to report the restaurant exceeded my high expectations.

When we arrived at the restaurant, the sky was quite ominous looking and storms were eminent, but this in no way unswayed the bbq lovers from coming out to New Market BBQ.  The parking lot and restaurant was full of people who were more than willing to brave the rain and wind to get their pulled pork and brisket dinners.

Here are a FEW of the pigs. I am sure there are countless others I missed or just didn't get a photo of.

There aren’t tables, rather a bar that goes across the front of the restaurant.  It creates an intimate environment allowing you to easily become friends with your neighbors.  If you want a more secluded dinning experience, there is a pavilion with picnic tables adjacent to the restaurant.

meatThe rain finally started, but thankfully we were all cozy inside the dining area.  We ordered our food, many of us taking forever (myself included) because there were so many delicious-sounding options.

ribsEveryone was sharing their food, because it was all so good we needed to try everything.  It was all great!  chickenAfter we had all eat past normal human consumption, we had (got to) pick out a dessert.  There were SO many choices, pecan pie, coconut pie, Elvis cake, banana pudding, peanut butter pie, and on and on.

Definitely go visit today.  You will love it!!dessert

I am a freelance photographer and writer, working for various magazines, cookbooks and blogs. I love what I do, but I have a lot of restrictions depending on which brand and publication I'm working for. This blog gives me the opportunity to have fun. I'm also a pretty terrible cook, so this blog is forcing me to learn some kitchen skills, which is both thrilling and infuriating. I hope you enjoy reading the blog, half as much as I enjoy making it.
