Philadelphia, PA - Mike's BBQ is located blocks away from Passyunk Ave., in the old South Philly Barbacoa location. Mike Strauss, co-owner of the Taproom on 19th, a few blocks away, started preparing his style of BBQ to close friends and family members for several years. Shortly after launching the taproom/gastropub in South Philly, they begun offering trial samples of his Bar-b-que to customers, which clamored for even more!
With years of practice below his belt, and apprenticeships near and far, they went to Georgia and purchased a Lang Smoker, an old school style "stick smoker”. Currently they launched Mike's BBQ brick and mortar restaurant at 1703 S 11th St, Philadelphia, PA 19148. Open from 12 noon till sellout (6ish) Wed-Sunday!
So, exactly what makes Mike's BBQ amazing, it's simple high quality ingredients and years of experience! Each and every thing they serve up is smoked the very same day.
Mike these days takes a trip all-around Philadelphia, and its surrounding markets carrying out pop-ups at surrounding breweries, bars and street festivals.
