Bitterroot BBQ

Bitterroot BBQ

BBQ. Beer. Bourbon. Ballard.

We serve our full menu until 1:00am EVERY DAY!

Try our new Thai inspired drink special, the Baht Sour, made with Bulleit bourbon, tamarind, ginger syrup, lime, & Thai chili bitters with a candied ginger garnish.

The garnishes have been made with love, they are looking forward to topping your Bloody Mary on this winter morning.

Our chicken fried pork is on point for brunch today. It is worth the swampy trek outside the house. Also on special is our smoked lamb shoulder chilaquiles.

[12/30/16]   What's for dinner? Fried Chicken!

Come in and say goodbye to Damon after 5 years here behind the Bitterroot BBQ bar. Also, introduce yourself to Adam, our newest bartender!

Apparently this was the chosen song to get pumped for brunch this morning. #seattlerestaurantlife

Saturday night dinner special! Smoked lamb shoulder, hand cut fries, roasted brussels, aji verde, queso fresco, pickled onions, tortillas. Serves four and is super tasty!


Our friends over at Stoup Brewing collaborated with Jameson Irish Whiskey on an imperial red-ale aged in Jameson Caskmates barrels to create the Dublin Down, a "rich malty beer with notes of caramel, toasted bread, and a grainy sweetness of Irish malt balanced by a strong addition of bittering hops.” Be sure to try it while it's on tap at Bitterroot for a limited time!
