There are few things more American than good barbecue. Between the deep, smoky flavor and the lip-smacking sauces, it’s a satisfying meal that will have you reaching for seconds. In the Crest Hill area, a prime destination for barbecue is Firewater BBQ, a bonafide joint that’s been serving the area since 1991.
Many of the recipes at Firewater BBQ are derived from a cookbook that the owners discovered in an old bomb shelter. The restaurant’s decor seems to fit this theme with wooden accents and simple, picnic-table style seating. You can watch everything being prepared in the kitchen behind the counter.
On the menu at Firewater BBQ, you’ll find classic after classic. The ribs, seasoned heavily and dripping with sauce, simply fall off the bone. The brisket is so tender you might need to eat it with a spoon! If you’re stopping by for lunch, try one of the signature sandwiches. The RD 3, which is stuffed with pulled chicken, smoked cheddar, bacon, fried pickles, and chipotle mayo, is a real hit.
Guests also rave about the side dishes at Firewater BBQ. You can choose from cornbread, creamy slaw, baked mac and cheese, sweet potato fries, BBQ baked beans, and more.
Firewater BBQ is open every day for lunch and dinner. You’ll find the restaurant at 1847 Knapp Rd., just a short drive from The Woodlands at Crest Hill Apartments.
