The Midnite BBQ, a celebration of options in food, music, and style! A twist on the traditional BBQ, created by influencers w/ a love of great vibes and variety. Starting well after sunset, w/ the tagline “No Burgers. No Hotdogs.”, we welcome all food lovers, restricted diets and discerning tastes. Featuring the best from local food trucks, chefs, and DJs.

America is a melting pot of cultures, but the words “BARBECUE” or “cookout “ connote imagery of an “All-American” event, w/ a menu devoid of food that truly reflects our diverse American cultural make-up. To add, most BBQs and cookouts focus on grilling pork, beef and chicken. While people across many cultures enjoy these options, there is a thriving community of health enthusiasts / religious practices with diet restrictions. The MidniteBBQ was inspired by a team member growing up in a Muslim household, having to ask, “ is there pork in this?” at every cookout, potluck and BBQ attended. We decided to flip the script, while catering to everyone…weeding out the ordinary w/ “No Burgers. No Hotdogs”, adding late night hours, a variety of options for restricted diets, and exotic options for the most discerning tastes.
