Utica BBQ Opens
There's BBQ. Then there's Utica BBQ, a new restaurant that's in a class all its own.
Chance Borawski is the man behind the restaurant in Central New York that just opened a few months ago. He transformed the former Boneyard BBQ location in Utica, fulfilling a lifelong dream to offer top-quality food in a rustic hometown bar atmosphere.
Utica BBQ serves up melt-in-your-mouth dishes you'd expect to see at a five-star restaurant in New York City, but without the Big Apple prices. There are traditional options like brisket, ribs, and chicken with your choice of sides. And once it's gone, it's gone. But there are also unique dishes that you have to try.
Korean Sticky Ribs
The Korean Sticky Ribs with carrot slaw and crushed peanuts are to die for. The meat falls off the bone and the flavors....oh my God! It was the three words you could hear over and over throughout the restaurant during the soft opening for family and friends.
Try it for yourself. Utica BBQ is located at 244 Roosevelt Drive in Utica. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Sunday and you can stay up to date on the menu and hours on the Facebook page.
