Pop-up BBQ Restaurant Coming to White Plains for November


It might be October, but we’re not ready to say goodbye to barbecue just yet. And fortunately, one local barbecue company is with us.

The Great American BBQ Co. has been catering barbecue in the area for the last fifteen years, and on November 1 it will open a pop-up restaurant in the space next to Sam’s of Gedney Way in White Plains. The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week for the entire month of November. Guests can eat in or carry out.

All barbecue will be rubbed, smoked and slow roasted on site by Pit Master, Pancho Diaz.  The appetizer menu includes chipotle buffalo wings, smothered chili cheese fries and warm, dry rubbed house-made barbecue potato chips. All of the main courses are served with corn pudding, baked beans and buttered biscuits. Try the dry rubbed St. Louis pork ribs, half chicken with hickory barbecue sauce, Carolina pulled pork, or go for a sampler platter and get a little bit of everything.  There will be a few barbecue-friendly craft beers like Captain Lawrence’s Smoked Porter and Ubu Ale from Lake Placid Brewery, as well as non-alcoholic bottled Saranac root beer.

If the pop-up is successful, the Great American BBQ Co. hopes to reopen as a seasonal restaurant from May through November in 2014.
