You guys! We’ve been blown away this week! Not just by being named Bellingham’s Best BBQ by the readers of the Bellingham Herald, but by the outpouring of love and congratulations from our friends, family, followers, and loyal guests in the last 24 hours! We are so thankful for all of you who have been sharing your meals, your stories, and your lives with us for the last 5+ years.
One might have realized that the kind of sudden attention garnered would bring out many, many, MANY new guests, and truly, we should have thought of it, but we didn’t. Our posted hours on Tuesday are 11-3, and we sold out in less then a couple hours yesterday.
For our new guests who are just now finding us, please know, it doesn’t get more Mom and Pop than our little restaurant. It’s just us, Rick and Linda, and our 4 part time employees, all students, and one full time employee. We have the best staff, hands down, the best! But we are still limited.
While we are strategizing ways to produce more food with the staff we have, we are unwavering in our commitment to producing the highest quality BBQ, which means we cook fresh every day. We watch our margins and gauge how much to smoke on a given day by tracking the previous 4 weeks. Tuesdays, which we’ve only just opened for lunch 4 weeks ago, only saw a limited number of guests and online orders, so we planned accordingly, but we just weren’t expecting the influx of guests and orders that we saw yesterday!
Please take advantage of our online store and order ahead, or call in whether you want to dine in or take out, we’ll make sure you have what you want.
Thank you Bellingham! We love you!
