Grass VBQ Joint, a vegan barbecue restaurant operating out of Orpheus Brewing since February, at 1440 Dutch Valley Place NE, later this year is getting a home of its own. Chef/Owner Terry Sargent launched the restaurant as a pop-up and then opened in the We Suki Suki food stall in East Atlanta Village before going to Orpheus, and now has snagged a permanent brick-and-mortar space for Grass VBQ Joint.
Sargent is aiming to debut the new Grass VBQ Joint on Black Friday, November 27, 2020, at 5385 Five Forks Trickum Rd SW Suite B-1, the restauranteur Monday told What Now Atlanta in an email. An 80 percent growth in revenue this year sparked the expansion, Sargent on Monday told Atlanta Magazine.
“It’s been our best year,” Sargent said. “When other vegan restaurants around town closed down temporarily or for good, we stayed open. We’re more of a to-go-type restaurant anyway, with no seating inside.”
The menu, which can be viewed here in its entirety, offers options like the Titustown for $13.96, which is a Smoked “Veef” Brisket with Vidalia VBQ Sauce, Celery Slaw, Cured Pickles, and a side of Zapps Chips. Sargent’s Smoked VicRiib Sandwich, priced at $12.96, is a Smoked Riiblet with Vidalia VBQ Sauce, Pickled Onions, Fried Pickles, and a side of Zapps Chips.
