VooDoo BBQ & Grill, the nation’s fastest-growing barbecue franchise, will open its next South Florida restaurant in Kendall on Sunday, May 26. To celebrate, VooDoo BBQ will be giving away free barbecue food for a year to the first 99 customers who show up on opening day. The restaurant is located in The Palms at Town & Country shopping center, 8405 Mills Drive, Unit 208, in Kendall, just off of SW 88th Street near the Florida Turnpike.
Doors open at 11 a.m., but Jack Flechner, president of BBQ Boyz, LLC, which is franchising VooDoo BBQ & Grill in South Florida, said anyone interested in eating free for a year should line up much earlier.
“There’s been a lot of interest ever since we announced we would be opening in Kendall,” said Flechner. “We’re expecting a very large crowd, similar to the one we saw when we opened our Pembroke Pines store in January of this year.”
Flechner said even if you don’t get in line in time to be one of the lucky 99, the restaurant will be raffling off at least four more year-long BBQ meals during opening day, along with merchandise and other valuable items. Guests will also be treated to free food samples throughout the day.
“It will be like a Mardi Gras celebration all day long,” said Flechner. “That’s the vibe you get when you set foot in a VooDoo BBQ & Grill.”
The 2,500 sq. ft. space in Kendall features indoor and outdoor seating for 85 people.
VooDoo BBQ & Grill offers competitive-style barbecue prepared with a New Orleans flair. The menu features ribs, pulled pork, chicken and brisket, all hand-rubbed with authentic Cajun and Creole spices and slowly smoked to perfection right on site. It also offers Big Easy favorites like Gumbo and PoBoy sandwiches, as well as salads, hamburgers and other specialty sandwiches. Also on the menu are hearty side dishes that include Gris Gris Greens, Rattlesnake Beans, Corn Pudding, Zapp’s Potato Chips and Sweet Potato Souffle.
New Orleans-based Voodoo BBQ & Grill has been recognized as one of the fastest growing “fast casual” restaurant franchises, with locations opening and under development in more than 56 cities and five states. The first location opened in New Orleans in 2002 on Mardi Gras day.
