Bub City: BBQ, Beer, Bourbon and the Best of Country Music

RJ, Jerrod and Molly Melman, in conjunction with Chef/Partner Doug Psaltis, have created their own destination for country music lovers to enjoy a cocktail, grab American-style food and have some fun.

With a nod to its roots as one of the city’s most beloved spots in the early 90’s, Psaltis created Bub City's new menu with a focus on authentic barbecue. Signature items include 18 hour Beef Brisket, Burnt Ends, Baby Back Ribs, Carolina Style Pulled Pork and Fried Chicken. Large groups can enjoy the “Whole Pork Picnic” featuring Slow-Smoked Pork Shoulder served with four sides.

Guests can enjoy starters such as “Giddy Up Fries,” Truckstop Cheese and Crakers, TNT Taquitos, Famous Fried Pickles, as well as variety of sandwiches. Southern-inspired side dishes such as: Sweet Potato Fluff, Buffalo Tots, Corn Off The Cob and three takes on Mac and Cheese round out the menu.

The weekend brings an impressive selection of brunch BBQ staples including Biscuits and Gravy, Beef Brisket Benedict, and Fried Chicken & Waffles, as well as a bevy of Hash Browns, and Cinnamon Sticky Buns. An extensive Bloody Mary bar is the perfect complement to any meal.

Bub City boasts a bar offering more than 125 selections from well-known and independent distilleries throughout the country.

Live Music
With Joe’s on Weed Street partners Ed Warm and Tom DeSanto in the mix, there is more to enjoy than just great food and drink. Guests can expect to see some of country music’s emerging talent featured on the venue’s 16-foot stage positioned at the center of the 4,500-square-foot space. The duo behind the city’s most popular country destination is already planning for some of country music’s biggest stars to stop by while on tour.
