Blue Oak BBQ opened April 22 on Carrollton Avenue near City Park. Here are four things to know about Mid-City's new spot for smoked meats:
- Blue Oak BBQ began as a pop-up at Grit's Bar. For the last two-and-half years, it has operated inside the club Chickie Wah Wah.
- The menu includes ribs, smoked chicken, pulled pork sandwiches and traditional barbecue sides like coleslaw and baked beans. A full, larger menu, which will include cracklins, rolls out next week.
- Blue Oak smokes with Texas post oak along with a little pecan wood.
- The restaurant has a full bar, which staring next week will stay open between lunch and dinner. A snack menu will be offered between meals.
