18 Demeris Bar-B-Q
Year opened: 1964
Origins: After acquiring Sanders Barbecue, Gus Demeris and cousin Nick opened the first Demeris Bar-B-Q on South Shepherd. The family opened several more locations from the late 60’s into the 70’s. Three locations remain open today.
Why it’s worth visiting today:Traditional barbecue ribs have made this family-run smokehouse a favorite among locals. Smoked jalapeno sausage, turkey and chicken are also on the menu, while fajitas and steaks are available at the original Shepherd location.
