Set to open on May 12, 42 BBQ will be set to serve their family-style barbecue that was developed through tradition of football games according to a Dallas Morning News article from May 10. They say,
“42 BBQ in Richardson is named for Conger’s son’s football jersey number.
“42 BBQ ultimately stemmed from my own family’s love of grilling together in the backyard after my son’s football games,” Conger says in a statement.
He expects to expand 42 BBQ and LimeHoney after the original restaurants open. Conger has a history with Pappas Restaurants, Chuy’s, and Uncle Julio’s, according to a press release; Morris has been an executive at Uncle Julio’s, Arby’s and Top Golf.”
Their very own barbecue is a classic Texas-style barbecue and it won’t be the only item on their menu as they will feature salad and seafood options according to a CultureMap Dallas article from May 9 which reports,
“According to a release, the restaurant features a classic Texas-style barbecue menu developed by chef Joshua Boneé, which they say is rooted in family recipes.
The menu features smoked brisket, pulled pork, ribs, turkey, half-chicken, and house made sausage, sold by the half pound for $11-$14. A two-meat plate is $21, and a three-meat plate is $29.
There are three salads, as well as baked potatoes which you can get loaded or topped with meat. There’s also gumbo, brisket chili, and Frito pie, plus two po’boy sandwiches with fried oysters or shrimp.”
Their grand opening will be a special day as they plan to contribute $1 to Big Brothers Big Sisters for Dallas in every transaction.
