Designed by Tanner Glaves.
I love the simplicity and cleanliness of this whole identity. You almost imagine that you are not going to end up with barbecue sauce on your eyebrow, but the burn marks on the back of the menu remind you that this is a place for good, ol’ fashioned sizzled meat. With only a small amount of items, the menu feels airy and spacious. It’s printed on a rough-edged sheet of paper that gives it that added BBQness feel to it and it’s delivered in a cool clipboard. All pretty ’kay by me.

Not being part of the artistic design culture my review comes from a barbecue eating specialist for over 30 yrs.Its nice to see Tanner Glaves put a preppy hip twist on barbeque,this work is clean and crisp ,the attention to detail is second to none,coming from a southern man putting this type of quality into a sloppy food group, is truly amazing,its nice to see a young person entering into a career with such a bright future.There truly is hope for America
Clean, simple logo, just enough color for impact, and wonderful typography choices. Especially love the clipboard (looks laser cut?).
Menu make me hungry just looking at it! I had lunch at Kay Bros. BBQ yesterday. Until someone handed me a coupon on campus I didn't even know there was a bbq joint in midtown.
