When MOJO was founded their original goal was to be able to offer an array of regional barbecue styles in one place and with their own personal touches. Well after our dining experience at Brick City Southern Kitchen we can assure you that they’ve been able to do just that!
Just like all of the MOJO family, Brick City Southern Kitchen offers the BIG BAR and Whiskey!
The about section of their website says that “in 2011, MOJO took their first serious step towards a whiskey and craft cocktail bar. The fourth location, MOJO no. 4 Urban BBQ and Whiskey Bar, is nestled in Avondale’s historic district and hosts the first collection of whiskey and bourbon MOJO owns.”And after they had great success with their bar they knew that they needed to move forward with whiskey! So with each new location opened, the bar got larger than the one before.
Over the last few years, MOJO catering has expanded and exploded to large festivals, major events, and elegant weddings. There was a demand for good barbecue and southern food at home, and MOJO delivered.
