A new barbecue restaurant is preparing to open its doors this January in Ellenton. Legacy BBQ will open at 2443 US-301, near the intersection with 25th Drive East.
“It’s a barbecue restaurant where everything is done in house,” owner Bill Sweet told What Now on Thursday. “Nothing you’re tasting is liquid smoke or smoke flavoring.”
Sweet says he has done barbecue catering for a long time and felt it was time to get into the brick-and-mortar space. Legacy BBQ will open with seating for about 25 guests and will also be a dependable spot for takeout orders made through its website (coming soon) and the major delivery apps.
Legacy’s barbecue features proteins like beef, pork, and chicken served up with Texas- and Kansas City-style flavor profiles. It will all come alongside sides like mac and cheese, green beans, baked beans, and more.
“We’re looking at mid-to-late January for an opening,” said Sweet.
