If you're hungry for some barbecue, you're in luck -- there's a new spot to get your fix. Virginia-Highland tavern Moe's and Joe's, located at 1033 North Highland Ave. NE, will launch a new weekly pop-up with Piedmont BBQ Co. beginning tomorrow at 6 pm. The pop-up will be every Wednesday and Thursday for the foreseeable future.
Piedmont BBQ Co., the barbecue pop-up from Brad Coolidge and Roberto Carlos Naranjo has moved on from Mother. Now the North Carolina-style 'cue is available Saturday afternoons at Irwin Street Market and Wednesday and Thursday evenings at Moe's & Joe's Tavern.
The pop-up takes over the Jake's Ice Cream space each Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday nights at Moe's and Joe's begin at 6 p.m. and last until the barbecue runs out. Coolidge and Naranjo serve pulled pork, pulled chicken, and chicken drumsticks. Sides cover red slaw, macaroni and cheese, "California-style" potato salad (no mayo), and creamed cucumbers. The pulled pork and chicken are served with a Lexington-style vinegar dip, and the drumsticks come with housemade barbecue sauce.
