Delta Blues Smokehouse, the newest restaurant from the Pappas family, is set to make its debut.

The restaurant is expected to make a November arrival at 19901 Gulf Freeway in Webster, serving up a menu of “elevated barbecue” in a setting that’s decidedly fancier than the typical smokehouse, including table service. In addition to smoked brisket from Creekstone Farms and other USDA Prime meats, the restaurant will serve Southern dishes like blackened catfish, fried green tomatoes, and a crab cake that’s mixed with brisket.

As far as the booze is concerned, the bar at Delta Blues will focus on American whiskeys and beer, along with Texas-inspired cocktails like the Luckenbach Shandy, made with Rittenhouse rye and St Arnold’s Art Car IPA. The new eatery comes just weeks after the 50th anniversary of the original Pappas Bros. BBQ, opened in 1967.

Delta Blues Smokehouse will kick open the doors on November 1.
