Already thinking about brunch? Well, now you are 😏 @rvafoodsandstuffs back at it again for some brunch action. At the Smoky Mug, whether you’re feeling a sweet or savory vibe, they got you COVERED 🤝 They have more than just the BBQ, don’t get it twisted 😮‍💨 For the sweet: Navajo Frybread topped with fresh peaches and blueberries, then drizzled with honey. The frybread is so fluffy on the inside and not too sweet - the fruit and honey are the perfect additions to round it out 🙌 For the savory: SO many options including the pictured benny which is a BRISKET Benedict on a biscuit 😩😩 There’s so much complexity to the dish but everything comes together so harmoniously. The dish is pure indulgence but balanced so nicely with the light sauce. Of all the ways I had brisket from this place, this might be my fave 🤭

What a perfect way to round out the weekend y’all!! Incorporating Texas BBQ into brunch is such a move and ya simply gotta give it a try. You won’t regret it 👏👏

I think this platter needs more meat… 🤣 Smoky Mug hooks it UPPP 🤝
No puns from me, @rvafoodsandstuffs today (thank goodness I know…) but I was at a loss for words when this thang was slapped down in front of me…which is fine bc I prefer to eat than talk anyway 😶 But WOOF this is some good stuff. I had to include two different angles bc this bad boy doesn’t just have one good side, it looks smokin any way ya turn it (and there goes the pun-less caption 🤦🏽‍♀️). Onto talking about the MEATS. The chicken: so flavorful, especially with the crispy skin on there. The pulled pork: DELICIOUS and so moist. The RIBS: I haven’t had ribs in a MINUTE and these were simply amazing. The brisket: you already know my dudes…you already know 🥵🥵 The Smoky Mug is all about doing Texas BBQ RIGHT and if you’ve ever attempted it, you must know how tedious it is. There are some agreed upon elements, but there are so many nuances that pit-masters “get nerdy about” to make the end product really killer. Well I think the pit-masters here have absolutely nailed it. The smoker they use is named Esmeralda and she was built by hand by Ryan, one of the owners and head pit-master. Pretty cool amiright?? I must say, Esmeralda is doin a FINE JOB folks 🙌 Come check it out for yourself TOMORROW (Saturday) 11am-sellout!!

Btw get ALL the sides because they’re all amazing and that hatch green chili Mac is so thiccc and delicious 🤤

I think The Smoky Mug should be the TACO the town 🌮 I’ll see myself out 🤦🏽‍♀️ For real who let me do this? Yeah, it’s @rvafoodsandstuffs back at it again with the cringy puns and we out here doin TACO NIIIIIGHTT (tomorrow tho). We’re talking brisket, carnitas, pork belly (maybe), potatoes, cauliflower, all in those glorious homemade tortillas y’all!! But hey…don’t sleep on the frickin NACHOS. You can either get carnitas (pictured) or chopped brisket (omfg but not pictured) and they can easily feed…idk a lot of people tho. So come on down TOMORROW (Friday) NIGHT 5pm-9pm (or sellout) to get you some baaaangin BBQ on tortillas OR tortilla chips and bring the WHOLE fam because it is feeeeaasting time 🤤

ALSO @dannyserious will be slinging cocktails and other alcoholic beverages as per usual and this week he’s whipping up a melon piña colada 🤤 Island vibes anyone? 😎🥥🌴

First time eating there today with my sister for a belated birthday brunch for me! EVERYTHING was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!
Hi, I am with Town Hall. We are preparing a Welcome Kit for new residents that are moving into our community. Our Welcome Kit can only feature one Cafe and I would like to discuss your being the exclusive Cafe for our new residents. I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail. Please message me or for immediate assistance, feel free to call or text me on my cell which is listed below. Thanks. Carole Merwin 804-539-9433
Any possibility you could open for coffee and finish the barbeque partt later? (jonesing for a close coffee encounter) (Also would give you cash flow:-)
