BEST BBQ IN ARIZONA!

Pitmaster-James Johnson

Our barbecue is mostly Cajun style. It’s smoked, we don’t cook with sauce on our meat. We want you to come taste the flavor of our meat. We make our own sauce and then add the sauce to enhance the flavor of the meat.

OUR STORY

After getting started with his first smoker and food truck, Johnson was given a chance to set up shop right outside the entrance to Walmart at 75th Avenue and Encanto Boulevard, just south of the Desert Sky Mall. This gave Johnson a great launch, and the store even had Johnson cater their holiday parties. Eventually, Johnson was finally able to establish his own restaurant on the fringes of downtown Glendale. Johnson brings Louisiana flavor with his barbecue, a flavor he says is unlike anything else in the country.
