838 College. Same spot as where Phil's BBQ used to be. Now open!

Tasty!

Not a bad looking brown liquour selection too.

No Sunday evening hours yet. That's when I really need them.. It'd be so good after a Sunday brewday... :(

Given what I've overheard here tonight, don't quote me on this, but I suspect as the weather improves Sundays will become a reality.

You can always bug them on Twitter. They're pretty responsive.

The first night went well. They've got a good variety of beers. Mustard sauce available which is nice as I've grown out of the usual sweet sauces and can't eat spicy anymore. I'd tweak the mac & cheese and completely overhaul the coleslaw (oil and lots of vinegar) but otherwise the BBQ was really good. I'm probably going for a second visit on Saturday night.

i'm going to wait a week or so go pay my regards.

for those newbies, the old standards to order are:
hush puppies
ribs
wings
brisket

the poutine should also be great, but it's a lot. i'd avoid the mac n cheese (it's missing something).

Good question. I tweeted at BR/BRTO/GLB to ask if the beer will be on tap too. Will post any reply.

Regardless I'm going.

this was on their facebook.

We have a super, truly 1 of a kind special coming up at the end of May. Beer, Bourbon, BBQ is being presented at Buster Rhino's Southern BBQ at our downtown Oshawa and Downtown Toronto locations. It's hard to describe how excited I am about this event, and we can't wait to share this with you. When you come in you will order Beer, Bourbon, BBQ from us. What you will receive is a shot of Four Roses Bourbon, a pint of amazing Great Lakes Beer, 2 different BBQ sauces, 2 different BBQ'd meats and sides.



Sounds like it's going to be pricey? I wonder if you can get the beer on it's own.
