The building that was for years known as the Old Hickory at 4029 North Main Street has been recreated into the home of World Bar-B-Que. Owner Nathaniel Campbell says, this isn’t your grandmother’s restaurant any longer and is proud to offer amazing barbeque from all around the world. You can enjoy St Louis style pork ribs- cooked low and slow for up to 6 hours, creating fall off the bone ribs, with a dark bark on the outside, and a pink smoke ring inside or perhaps you’d prefer Texas beef ribs, beef brisket, Carolina smoked pork or southern smoked chicken. They even offer a meatless option of smoked tofu topped with BBQ Sauce over a bed of black beans and rice. Sandwiches on the menu include an authentic Cuban, several reubens and BBQ options and a choice of catfish or shrimp Po’Boys. The homemade sides menu boasts traditional items like potato salad, cole slaw, mac & cheese as well as fried cabbage, souther fried potatoes and BB!Q chips. The dessert menu offers ice cream as well as fruit empanada’s and smoked plantains.
The eatery will be open Thursday – Sat nights from 5pm to midnight and will feature a small stage with live shows, an open mic night and karaoke, too. Happy hour from 5-9pm will feature $2 drafts and $3 margaritas. They also believe in supporting the community and have set aside one day a week for a “World Invasion”. Each week they will choose a group or charity and allow that organization to ‘invade’ the restaurant. The group would invite all of their supporters to come join then for the ‘invasion’ and a portion of the nights sales will be donated to them.
As part of their grand opening promotion they will be supporting WDTN’s Food For Friends campaign. ON Thursday, Dec. 6th bring in a non-perishable food item for and receive a one dollar discount on an appetizer.
