You might recognize the location, but what was once an Arby's on South Virginia street is now all about BBQ. Matt Foster is the owner of Roscoe's Joint. "We offer what like to think Reno's absolute best BBQ. 100% wood fired. Everything in this building is homemade. The greens, the okra, coleslaw, the catfish."
But according to Foster, Reno is a rib town. The brisket is pretty popular too, but it's all about the ribs at Reno's news BBQ joint. And while this is the finished product
Matt says his secret ingredient is his Texas made smoker. It holds 1,000 pounds of meat. All the meat is cooked with smoke. Green cherry wood smoke to be exact. Ribs, brisket, pork it's cooked all night long at 220 degrees to make it juicy and tender. And it's never cooked in sauce. "We don't put any sauce on it at all until you order it. We believe true BBQ is without sauce. It's in the meat."
Oakland style BBQ is like Texas BBQ. It has a little sweetness. Nice to combine with smoky beans, collard greens and cornbread muffins. And just recently added to the menu? Chicken and waffles. You have to eat the salty chicken with the maple syrup drenched waffle all in one bite. And if that doesn't satisfy your sweet tooth, check out the homemade pineapple upside down cake.
There is also a drive thru to make things easy. And starting May 1st, they will be serving southern breakfast.
