If you are looking for an authentic BBQ joint in Beirut, Butcher’s BBQ Joint in Mar Mikhael is the place to go. It’s a small and cozy place that serves mouth-watering “soul food” sandwiches, burgers and dishes. I’ve been there already 3 times and tasted almost everything on the menu. The Pulled pork sandwich, pork ribs and fried chicken with waffle topped by maple syrup are my favorites, the bacon is one of the best I’ve had in Lebanon, thick, crispy and really tasty, the Beef Brisket and Merguez burgers were good, I loved the green salad they offer as well as the sauces (try the butcher’s sauce and the gravy sauce) and the chocolate waffle dessert is a must-try. The only thing I didn’t like much were the fries to be honest.
Fried Chicken and Waffles with maple syrup.
Butcher’s BBQ Joint is perfect for a quick bite or a late night snack (before or after the party). Their Sunday brunch comes highly recommended but I’ve never tried it to be honest. They also serve a bacon-infused rum cocktail but I was never tempted to try it.
When you go visit the first time, let the manager help you with the order. He’s very friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable when compared to the portions and quality of food offered. Butcher’s BBQ Joint is located in Mar Mikhael next to Train Station and Secteur.
