Chester’s Barbecue in Clinton has closed.
GREAT BBQ ISN’T JUST IN THE SOUTH
There are no shortcuts to great BBQ and we’ve made it our mission to stay authentic to the craft. All of our meats are seasoned overnight and smoked low and slow for up to 16 hours.
REAL BBQ means indirect heat cooking instead of simply grilling. BBQ means REAL flavor, derived from a special blend of woods; including Hickory, and Cherry.
BBQ means the perfect BBQ sauce – and we’ve got that covered. Our signature BBQ Sauce is so good, you’ll want to lick your plate! BBQ is an experience – and, for Chester’s BBQ, that means a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere where you can enjoy delicious food and spend time with family and friends.
“The meat is fall-off-the-bone tender and served on a soft white bread, just as they do down South. Most of our smoked meats are carved to order, whether it’s a half pound of brisket or a whole rack of ribs. This helps it to retain the juicitosity (the interior doesn’t dry out). We could do like some places and have it sitting in some sort of wetness but that’s not how we do. If you know anything about low and slow, you know it requires patience. We in the business to serve good food, not fast food.
The juicy morsels of beef, pork and poultry are seasoned with our own rubs. It’s so tender there are no words… Real food is the name of the game and we want to serve something that makes you think of food, family and fun.
“Instead of grilling over a flame, Chester’s slow-cooks its meat inside of the large metal smokers behind the restaurant. Seating is available inside of the two adjoining rooms, which are decked out in country decor.”
