If you’re like me, you crave smoked barbecue chicken, ribs, or pulled pork at least a couple times a week. The only issue is it is often difficult to find an authentic restaurant that truly understands the craft of barbecue. Oh wait, there is Troy’s Bar-be-Que!
Troy’s Bar-Be-Que has been smoking up mouth watering, fall off the bone BBQ in Boynton Beach for over 20 years. Recently, the restaurant decided that the quality of their food and their location needed to match. The restaurant which has been located in the Heart of Boynton Beach has recently moved to 1920 S. Federal Highway, which is just south of Woolbright Road. Troy Davis has over 40 years of experience with smokers and BBQ. His legacy began when he decided to start smoking chicken and ribs on MLK Boulevard on Fridays. Operating specifically off word of mouth advertising, Friday nights at Troy’s house became very popular as the whole neighborhood made sure to swing by to get their weekly dose of slow cooked meats. It didn’t take long for Troy to open up shop on the corner of MLK Blvd and Federal Highway.
Twenty years later, Troy has passed the management torch to his stepson Anthony Barber. As the general manager, Anthony has taken full reign of the new location and hopes to continue the legacy of Troy’s amazing BBQ for many years to come.
“The old location was not getting the foot traffic we needed because of the location, there wasn’t enough opportunity for growth,” stated Anthony Barber.
Today Troy’s Bar-Be-Que operates as a cafeteria style restaurant, with a plenty of seating, and a drive through option for on the go customers. Classically, Troy’s is serving up soul food like brisket, ribs, chicken, and pulled pork, along with macaroni and cheese, peas and rice, yams, baked beans, Cole slaw, and collard greens.
Based on my visit to Troy’s, people seem to love the new location as much as the food. “We have lines out the door, and we want more,” said Anthony. Which shouldn’t be too hard considering their loyal customer base is growing each day. On the Boynton Beach RAW Facebook page, many residents have expressed their excitement about the restaurant’s new location, which is providing community recognition and additional exposure.
Troy’s Bar-Bar-Que is a family restaurant that survives not just on its delicious BBQ, but on its customer service, and consistency to provide a quality product. “We want our customers to be happy, producing quality over quantity is much more important to Troy’s,” Anthony stated.
Troy’s has daily lunch specials from 11:30 am to 1 pm Monday through Friday and offers catering services. You don’t know BBQ until you’ve had Troy’s Bar-Be-Que. For an experience you won’t forget, try Troy’s today! They are located at 1920 S. Federal Hwy in Boynton Beach.
