Are you a fan of BT’s BBQ in Torrey Highlands? Well you might have noticed they recently changed their name to BT’s Hot Chicken and Ribs! I stopped in recently to chat with owner, Brad Taylor, about his business and what’s behind the name change.
Brad discovered a love of cooking (and barbecue in particular) at an early age. He spent years perfecting his recipes and eventually started a catering and event company. Now as the owner of BT’s Hot Chicken and Ribs, he gets to share his barbecue magic with the Off the 56 community.
BT’s Hot Chicken and Ribs serves a broad selection of southern barbecue favorites like baby back ribs, pulled pork, and brisket. But the true “sleeper on the menu” is the smoked turkey breast, which is packed full of flavor and absolutely delicious. BT’s also offers a menu of daily specials. In fact, the Nashville Hot Fried Chicken was a Wednesday special for years until enough customers raved about it to get it permanently on the menu – hence the rebrand to BT’s Hot Chicken and Ribs! BT’s current daily specials include Smoked Meatball Madness on Monday, Taco Tuesday, New Orleans BBQ Shrimp on Friday, and more. Have little ones? BT’s has a kid’s menu that serves up smaller portions of some of their main menu favorites. Click here to check out the full menu.
Brad also took me through their new menu items. BT’s is now serving up four sandwiches that feature their signature Nashville Hot Fried Chicken: the original Nashville Chicken Sandwich, the Nashville Chicken Parm, the Nashville Pitmaster, and the Clux Capacitor. You’ll have the option to choose your heat level, so if you don’t like your food too spicy you can still enjoy one of BT’s new chicken sandwiches.
In additional to all their awesome food items, BT’s also has sixteen craft beers on tap. If you stop in between 4-6pm, you can take advantage of their happy hour special and get a pint for just $5.50.
BT’s is open every day after 11am. It’s the perfect place to grab lunch or dinner with the family. You can also pick up one of their family packs to go which is designed to feed a crowd. And if you can’t get enough of BT’s southern favorites, you can also hire them to cater your next event.
