We first wrote about the opening of Warped Wings newest spot that opens Saturday to the public.
But one of the cool perks we get at DaytonDining is being invited to pre-openings of some of the areas restaurants, breweries, bakeries and distilleries.
Today we headed to the the new Warped Wing Barrel Room & Smokery in Springboro. Nicole Marie, Bryan Suddith and I visited this afternoon and all three of share our first impressions:
I’m looking forward to bringing friends to this new location! The addition of their curated cocktail menu is a great touch. While Warped Wing is known for their beer, the option for something different should make this location a must-visit. I tried the – the Ole Hickory Shandy and The Panther were pretty tasty.- Oyo Vanilla Bean Vodkea, hickory smoked simply syrup, fresh lemon and pineapples juices topped with Trotwood Lager and The Panther- Stillwrights Light run, coconut liqueur, blue cuacao, pineapple juice, fresh squeezed lime juice topped off with Warped Wings housemade Ginger Ale.
They’ve done a fantastic job of trying to keep as many things as possible locally sourced. Cheers to that!
Sometimes you find superb barbecue in the unlikeliest of places. Like the new Warped Wing Barrel Room & Smokery. They are smoking brisket, pork belly, wings, pork shoulder and turkey on a legit Ole Hickory Pits smoker out back.
I’m not gonna lie. Expectations were low and they exceeded them all. The pork belly sliders with fried jalapeño slices were awesome. Just a touch of sweet bbq sauce. Same with the brisket sliders. Great peppery bark and full of smoke flavor. Tender. Good pull. One of the best bites of brisket I’ve had in Ohio! The onion straws and cheese just added to the bite. Wings. Smoked then flash fried for service. Get em with the dry rub.
All In all. 4.5 ribs out of five. Great room. Great service. Awesome bbq.
The layout felt very urban and if it hadn’t been raining when we went, I’m sure the 2 big garage doors opening to the patio would have let in an awesome breeze. There is a private room, perfect for a meeting or special event, which seats about 30 right now, but post-covid will be a great place for beer dinners of up to 50. Servers came to your table to take your drink orders. If you wanted to order food, you were given a timed buzzer and when if went off you could go to the Smokery Window and place your order, which kept you from waiting in line and is very socially distance and safe. When your food is ready, they bring it right to your table.
I agree with Bryan on the meat, and thoroughly enjoyed the Tater Kegs- big oversized tots stuffed with bacon, cheddar cheese and chives. The sliders come with your choice of fresh cut fries, cowboy chili, mac ‘n cheese, collard greens, jalapeno cheddar grists, BBQ bans or coleslaw.
I predict that this Springboro brewery will be quite the hot spot!
