Meat and Mini-Bars: Mr. K’s Barbeque Opens Today

Posted By on Mon, Aug 15, 2011 at 9:03 AM

I can’t think of a better way to start a Monday than meat and mini-bars, so let’s get to it.

Mr. K’s Barbeque on the corner of River Road and Stone Avenue opens today, and reports from the soft opening — which raised more than $2,200 for the Tucson Fire Foundation and the UA School of Pharmacy — indicate good things.

The main gist of it is that the barbeque is killer. I believe it. Steve Sargent, a partner in the business and a native of Texas, brings plenty of barbeque experience to the restaurant, and he's using family recipes from Charles “Mr. K” Kendrick. Add to that the massive restaurant knowledge of John Foster — of Mays Counter and other local eateries - and you have a recipe for barbeque success.

Foster told us a while back he would debut a new mini-bar concept at the restaurant that sounded interesting. He said there will be an enormous selection of those little airplane liquor bottles to choose from, and customers add their own mixer. It was such a novel idea that it even had members of the state liquor board scratching their heads, but it got the o.k. anyway.

You can check out some pictures from the soft opening here.
