Bryan's Black Mountain BBQ Expands Hours, Will Add "Bryan's Side Door" Next Year

It's Sunday morning and you're craving some 'cue, so you decide to take a nice, long ride out to Cave Creek for a dose of pulled pork from Bryan's Black Mountain BBQ. There's only one problem. You get there and realize the restaurant's closed.

Don't worry. We've been there and we feel your pain. The good news is that you don't ever have to go home barbarcue-less on Sundays again. As of next month, Bryan's will expand its winter hours to include Sunday service.

Beginning on Sunday, November 2, the Cave Creek restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. The restaurant will still be closed on Monday and will still have different summer hours when June rolls around.

And expanded hours aren't the only news coming from the popular barbecue spot. Chef Bryan Dooley is also in the initial stages of planning to expand his restaurant into the space next door.

The expansion will be called "Bryan's Side Door" and is expected to open in early February 2015. The space will be dedicated to pickup orders and will also be used for private parties. More ideas are in the works for the Side Door, but aren't being announced now.

Dooley will also be making some changes to the patio including changing the railing and enlarging the space.

Oh, and the next time you stop into Bryan's, keep an eye out for a few new products from Dooley. In addition to his barbecue sauce, rub, and cookbook, you can now also buy the chef's pickled jalapeños, lemon vinaigrette, and Trust Your Chef aprons and T-shirts.
