Barbecue food trailer to open brick and mortar location
Boners BBQ won’t have to erect their first ever storefront.
That’s because the barbecue joint “inked a deal [Monday]” for space “next to the Atlanta Braves stadium,” according to a post on their Facebook page.
Boners’ announcement was well received from Scott Matthew Rouse, who posted to the restaurant’s Facebook page in response to that status update and said, “Hells yea!”
In what Boners is referring to as making it “to fourth base,” the barbecue joint plans on opening April 8 in the former Phipps Café space at 634 Fraser street Downtown.
Located next to Azars liquor store, the restaurant will be BYOB and will have a “big deck” for patrons to sit on.
Boners BBQ first planned on opening in East Atlanta Village (EAV), prior to launching their “mobile unit,” according to Creative Loafing.
The barbecue joint was “conceived” in 2001, operating out of a food trailer for the purpose of “catering to the film and movie production industry, corporate, and private parties.”
Boners’ plan was to also start posting their mobile unit’s whereabouts through Twitter to serve patrons all over town. But it’s safe to say with the city’s recent lashings against street vendors, that’s just a wet dream.
The barbecue joint fuses Asian, Latin, and Southern cuisine and creates dishes that include nab tempura-fried onion rings,
green beans (per comment below), blue collards, baby back ribs, and pulled pork sliders.
Whether or not Boners will still open a unit in the EAV has not been confirmed.
