Smoke BBQ had a big crowd on Thursday night, its first night after months of permitting issues delayed its grand opening.
Then on Friday, the water heater broke, causing a later-than-expected 3 p.m. opening. Co-owner Susan Lennon hopes all the kinks are ironed out and the Cordell Avenue shop (4858 Cordell Ave.) with a range of barbecue styles can thrive.
Pulled pork sandwiches (plain, with vinegar, BBQ or spicey BBQ sauce) are $6.95, BBQ pulled chicken is also $6.95 and the brisket sandwich is $7.95.
Platters range from $10.95 for pulled pork to $24.95 for a full rack of ribs and the menu includes $5 kids specials and a full bar selection.
A few doors down, Brickside Food & Drink is preparing to open. Across Norfolk Avenue, Tommy Joe’s owner Alan Poho’s two-story, outdoor patio-focused restaurant is under construction, giving Woodmont Avenue an infusion of new eateries for 2013.
