Status: Opens Today
Barbecue beast man himself Myron Mixon has opened his second restaurant in Wynwood, Pride & Joy BBQ. Mixon's barbecue fame stems from winning over 200 barbecue competitions (three-time world barbecue champion) and showing face time all over food television, even being a judge on TLC's BBQ Pitmasters. So, with that said, let's get to the meat and potatoes. Or just the meat. Mixon will be using his custom-made smokers and his own line of sauces and spices to serve up some the darn best ribs, brisket, pulled pork, and wings you've ever had. Other items like Baby Back Mac, Mama's Slaw, a Bourbon Burger, and a Deep-Fried S'mores Brownie round out the menu of comforting Southern eats. There are two dozen beers on tap, a list of bottled beers, wines by the glass and bottle, and cocktails to wash it all down. And the setting couldn't be more down-home-country-style either: big wood planks from a barn in North Carolina line the walls while picnic tables and lamps made from bourbon bottles finish it off. Be sure to run out back and get yourself a beer, child, as there's even a beer garden.
