Chucktown BBQ, a soon to be renowned name in the world of barbecue, is excited to kick off Memorial Day Weekend with the grand opening of its location inside Tennessee Avenue Beer Hall in Atlantic City. Starting May 26, visitors and locals alike can relish in the tantalizing flavors of authentic barbecue like pulled pork, smoked sausage, brisket, ribs and an assortment of mouthwatering sauces.
Situated outdoors in the bustling Tennessee Avenue Beer Hall yard, Chucktown BBQ is poised to redefine the culinary landscape of Atlantic City. Combining the rustic charm of the beer hall with the art of barbecue, this new staple promises a truly memorable dining experience for guests.
“Our goal is to bring an added, one-of-a-kind experience to Atlantic City” said Executive Chef Charles Soreth, owner and pitmaster of Chucktown BBQ. “We wanted to create an atmosphere where everyone could enjoy the rich flavors of Carolina-inspired barbecue, paired with the lively ambiance of the Tennessee Avenue Beer Hall.”
At Chucktown BBQ, guests can expect a menu curated and inspired by down-home Carolina BBQ, satisfying even the most discerning barbecue aficionados. Offering both pulled pork and chicken, prepared to perfection, the meat melts in your mouth with its exceptional tenderness. The smoked sausage is bursting with rich flavors, but for those craving a taste of smoked excellence, the brisket is a must-try, and no barbecue experience is complete without a succulent rack of their perfectly charred ribs. The culinary journey is elevated with an array of sauces, allowing guests to customize their plate to suit their individual preferences, including the pairing of classic sides like collard greens, potato salad, Carolina slaw and BBQ beans. Savor your meat by the half or full pound, or atop an expertly crafted sandwich.
Soreth further revealed the catchy name is rooted in his own upbringing, “Growing up sharing the same name as my Father, the nickname Chuck was ensued on me as a way to differentiate us. Then after spending a lot of time in Charleston, deemed by locals as ‘Chucktown,’ I came to adapt the nickname of the iconic Southern city to my own concept right in the heart of Atlantic City.”
Follow the smoke to the outdoor yard, the heart and soul of the smokin’ haven, where you’ll step into the tantalizing aroma of mesquite filling the air, and the lively 40-seat atmosphere inviting you to kick back, relax and soak in the true essence of Southern hospitality. A friendly server will take your BBQ order and grab you a round from inside. With an extensive selection of craft beers and cocktails available from the Beer Hall, guests can relish in the perfect pairing with their barbecue feast. Expect future collaborations, including a one-of-a-kind BBQ smoked Old Fashioned.
Dine in or take out, the outdoor walls surrounding the smoker will soon boast a three-story mural painted by a local Atlantic City artist. Catering will also be available, as well as options to book your next birthday or bachelorette party up close and personal with the pitmaster.
Chucktown BBQ inside Tennessee Avenue Beer Hall will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting at 11 a.m. until the mouthwatering BBQ delights sell out. This limited availability was crucial to Chef Soreth, ensuring each guest is treated to the freshest and most delectable barbecue experience.
