Sweet Auburn BBQ

What’s street food without BBQ…lacking, that’s what.  Partners Howard, Dave and Richard, all restaurant owners with tons of experience in the business, rolled out the Sweet Auburn BBQ  truck (SAB) in February and have been running ragged ever since!  They really want to bring comfort food to the street, and if you’re looking for nostalgic memories of backyard BBQs with pops this is your spot!

Gotta love the pig in the logo!

The crew – ready to appease all your BBQ cravings

They serve a variety of BBQ staples, including ribs, pork, chicken and brisket and put a twist on traditional sides with their Jamaican collard greens, sweet potato soufflé and Asian pear coleslaw. They also have strawberry lemonade and Asian mint tea along with the traditional soda products.

Why just have sweet tea, when you can have it w/ mint picked by Asians?

Seriously, the tea is really good and quite refreshing…especially when it’s 95 degrees and you’re hanging out in an asphalt parking lot! I have tried most of their food and in my opinion the pork tacos with coleslaw on top are the best; slow smoked Q that has tons of smoky flavor and packs enough juice to ruin at least an entire leg of your pants. On this visit, I had the spare ribs, and while favorable and moist, they just didn’t beat the chopped/pulled pork in the taco; they did have a nice smoke ring however!

The other thing I really like about SAB is their multitude of sauces, everything from smoky to sweet to hot…even smoky-sweet! While I do agree that superior BBQ doesn’t need sauce, it never hurts if it’s good!

A small sample of the sauces – they even have the old school peppers in glass…the ones you’re never sure of the expiration or heat content…

SAB has two trucks you can find around town at most Food Truck events and festivals; they also do catering and just opened up a brick and mortar spot in the Sweet Auburn Curb Market downtown…hence the name!
