Just in time for the Labor Day weekend is the expected debut of a New Orleans-style barbecue joint in the Polo Club Shoppes (5030 Champion Blvd.) in Boca.
VooDoo BBQ, a four-state, Big Easy-based purveyor of all things slow-cooked and smoky, already has four Florida outlets, with the Boca branch set to open Aug. 25 and a sixth location to debut later in Pensacola.
The fast-casual eateries typically feature a look that might best be described as cleaned-up New Orleans funk, with a menu that swings between traditional ‘cue, a few Cajun-Creole specialties and the inevitable burgers, wings and loaded potatoes.
Look for all the usual barbecue suspects—pulled pork, chicken, sausage, brisket, turkey and ribs—plus New Orleans staples like gumbo, jambalaya, red beans and rice, barbecue shrimp, shrimp po’ boys and white chocolate bread pudding. Dig in and let the good times. . . well, you know.
