It is not that easy to find BBQ in Astoria but there is one place that I know of that serves only BBQ in this area, Butcher Bar. This BBQ restaurant is not only a good place to get your BBQ but it also sells meat like a butcher. They have a display case showing all there organic grass fed meats, sausage, and beef patties that are raised locally.
It’s a cozy atmosphere at butcher bar and they even have a back patio. Although the day the southerner and I decided to try them out it was super hot and the AC inside was much nicer. Everything we saw for the BBQ was all ketchup based. So if your from the south your going to notice no mustard or vinegar based BBQ. I’m from the north so ketchup is what I’m used to.
I had the Philly Cheese Brisket Sandwich. It was the perfect combo of a philly cheese steak and brisket sandwich. Loads of melted cheese, now who doesn’t like that??
The southerner had a pulled pork sandwich. Great bun and a good mix of pork and sauce.
They have a nice menu at Butcher Bar. Things are a little pricy for Astoria but the meat is organic so you get what you pay for.
