The place is Hoodoo Brown BBQ and it is earning quite a reputation for taking meat to a whole new level in a wild west BBQ style. It is probably fitting that this joint is located in Ridgefield on the western border of Connecticut.
The restaurant is named after Hoodoo Brown who was quite the character. He was a bank robber, moon shiner, cattle herder, justice of the peace and a cook who exemplified life in the wild west. His spirit is celebrated by the best Texas style BBQ that you can find in Connecticut.
The owner got his inspiration from "a guys" trip to Texas. He was inspired to bring the wild west BBQ experience that he had back to Connecticut and serve it up in style to residents of the Nutmeg State.

On the weekends you can start your day in the wild west way with the breakfast querito. Made with pulled pork or brisket, with eggs, cheddar cheese, pit beans, french fries
and wrapped up in a flour tortilla. Don't forget to add a side of the house bacon, you won't regret it.
A must have during weekend brunch is the bloody trinity. It is a hearty combination of ribs, sausage and vodka.
The pimento cheese platter is one of the many delectable appetizers offered on the menu. But make sure you save room for the star of the show - the BBQ.
