Chew Chew BBQ, a new food trailer serving up slow-smoked BBQ meats, homemade sides and desserts is now open for business at the South Side Eatery located on the Lakeway/Bee Cave city line.
Co-owners Samuel Corbett and Jamison Toomey join three other food trucks already situated at the location. Chew Chew BBQ offers onsite window service, door-to-door delivery and catering for events such as weddings, company outings or family reunions.
The fare at Chew Chew BBQ consists of a variety of slow-smoked meats including brisket, pork ribs, sausage, ham, turkey and chicken. Potato salad, sweet slaw, BBQ beans and BBQ stuffed potato along with banana pudding and peach cobbler round out the menu. Customers can tailor their dining experience with choices such as family packs, a-la-carte meats or at-home delivery.
Co-owner and head chef, Sam Corbett, has owned several eating establishments in the Austin area over the past few decades and considers himself a seasoned Texas BBQ connoisseur. “I have been cooking BBQ for as long as I can remember and I firmly believe that patience and a good rub are the key ingredients for great BBQ.” says Corbett. “Jamison and I are both very passionate about this business.”
Co-owner, Jamison Toomey, believes Chew Chew BBQ will be a good fit for the community. “We will be doing something a little differently than the others by providing delivery to homes and businesses in the surrounding area. We’ve got something to satisfy every BBQ lover.”
Chew Chew BBQ officially opened its window on June 20. The trailer is open every Tuesday through Saturday between the hours of 11:00 am and 7:30 pm and on Sunday from 11:00 am through 4:00 pm.
As for our commitment to the community, we take that very seriously. Although it's a restaurant in just about every sense of the word, because it's on wheels, some may view a food trailer as a fly-by-night operation. Please be assured that’s not the case with us. We lease our space, we pay local taxes and we have the very same requirements for permits and health department compliance as a brick & mortar restaurant does. After many decades of owning eating establishments in the Austin area, we thought it would be fitting to continue our passion for BBQ right here, in our own neighborhood. We are a part of the community and we plan to remain. The upside is that we own our little building on wheels and if need be, we can bring it all to your doorstep! At Chew Chew we view that as an added benefit to the people of Bee Cave.
Until further notice we will be closed on Sundays. We are looking toward opening Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 3pm in the near future. Our website is always updated with our current hours. You can find us here, chewchewbbq.com
Again, we sincerely apologize and hope you’ll give us another try. If there is anything we can do to improve your experience with us please let us know. Your feedback is always welcome.
