Long Awaited McClure's BBQ Opens on Magazine

Former manager of Dante’s Kitchen and barbeque master Neil McClure has finally transitioned from pop-up to proprietor, with his Uptown restaurant set to open tonight, July 28, at 6pm. After a tussle over permitting, McClure secured a temporary license with the city. 

Grill Power: McClure's BBQ Set to Open Uptown

From peripatetic pop-ups to permanent digs, Neil McClure finally sets a date for his long-awaited barbeque business, McClure’s Barbeque (4800 Magazine St.) to open.  Scheduled to start grilling just in time for the biggest cookout of the year, July 4th, McClure’s Barbeque will offer all the BBQ classics from brisket to pulled pork to chicken and of course to ribs.  Coupled with homemade sides like baked beans, potato salad and macaroni, nothing comes out of a box.

After several months of using the familiar environs of Dante’s Kitchen as a home base for his burgeoning BBQ venture, Neil McClure is cutting the apron strings and taking steps towards a permanent location.  For now, though, McClure will be bringing his wood-fire smoked beef, pork, chicken, and ribs to other neighborhoods through alternative pop-up arrangements.
