After finding success with SmoQue Pit — a BBQ restaurant in Statesboro, Georgia — Chef and Owner Seni Alabi-Isama is opening up spinoff concept SmoQue Burger in the heart of CODA Tech Square’s The Collective Food Hall @ Coda, which consists of seven food stalls and one bar and cocktail station.

SmoQue Burger will be at the center of the 645,000 square-foot mixed-use development and its 25,000 square-foot street-level food court, at 756 W Peachtree St NW. SmoQue Pit’s neighboring restaurants will include Poke Burri, Aviva by Kameel, El Burro Pollo, By Weight and Measure, and Wildleaf

“Tech Square is the right place for this because it goes 24/7,” David R. Smith of Trowbridge Partners, LLC, who represents SmoQue, told What Now Atlanta. “People are always there.”

SmoQue burger will differentiate itself not only from its fellow tenants of The Collective Food Hall @ Coda but other burger joints with its BBQ-inspired patties. Alabi-Isama was inspired by the idea of delivering to those who love traditional hamburgers with a strong regional appeal for smoked foods and barbecue. With the addition of its desserts and sides, Alabi-Isama wants SmoQue Burger to remind people of traditional BBQ as well. The meat will be locally sourced and on-site, hand-roasted turkey, brisket, and pork. 

Aiming for a broader audience, SmoQue Burger will cater to CODA Tech Square’s diversity. “We like the diversity, to the hotels to the students to the faculty to the people in the tech industry,” Smith said. “And the people who have homes there.” The street-facing restaurant will make it accessible by the locals as well.

SmoQue Burger is expected to arrive at The Collective Food Hall @ Coda before the end of the year.
