“Come try our Pulled Pork!”

Red State BBQ was founded in October 2010 by Scott Ahlschwede. An equine vet by profession, Texas native, and a darn good grill master in his own right, Scott simply wanted a place to have some good barbecue and a beer. As luck would have it he found the lovely Sunset Motel with the old Sunset Restaurant out in front. Ever since. people stopping at the little roadside BBQ joint on U.S. 25 have been able to enjoy brisket. ribs, chicken and pork on a daily basis along with all the great side dishes we have to offer. As for the name? PeopIe often ask where the name Red State comes from. Truth be told it came about as an offhand comment between friends. While watching the election returns one night Scott turned to a friend and said, “You ever notice how all the good barbecue comes from the Red States?” And there the name was born.
