Authentic BBQ is hard to find and even when you do, there is plenty of debate on which style is the best.
Brick’s Smoked Meats brings the bold flavors of Texas BBQ to the busy streets of Sarasota.
As you walk in, the intense smell of smoked brisket and ribs leaves little room for interpretation — this is an authentic BBQ joint. With BBQ classics like brisket, pulled pork and St. Louis ribs, you’re bound to find something you like at Brick’s. All of the meat is smoked inside “Big Red,” the massive smoker that can pump out up to 1800 pounds of meat!
But Brick’s isn’t just serving up the same old BBQ favorites. There are also tacos and salads on the menu with plenty of healthy, home-cooked sides.
BBQ in Sarasota
Sierra, the Assistant Manager at Brick’s, thinks that Brick’s was the perfect addition to Downtown Sarasota.
“There are not a lot of authentic BBQ restaurants in Sarasota,” she says. “Especially not with a full bar like we have here.”
The bar at Brick’s has plenty of signature cocktails on the menu with tequila and whiskey along with an extensive wine selection.
Do you usually crave something sweet after your meal? Brick’s has Mason Jar Minis on the menu filled with banana pudding, s’mores and Mojito lime — the perfect way to end your Brick’s experience.
The Future is Bright
Although Brick’s Smoked Meats is a new establishment, Sierra thinks they are already off to a great start.
“We are definitely moving in the right direction,” she says. “The locals love this place and are making it part of their everyday routine.”
And Sierra counts herself as one of those locals.
“Even though I work here all day, I still find myself coming back here for dinner,” she says. “It’s a great place to hang out.”
