Nancy BBQ

Nancy’s Bar-B-Q’s

Nancy’s Bar-B-Q’s
1525 4th Street in the Rosemary District Sarasota, FL 34236

Only Nancy here on the Suncoast prepares pork shoulder (“Boston Butt”) with her secret recipe 14-ingredient dry rub, cooks it in a Bar-B-Q oven “low and slow” for 15 or more hours … and then serves it up in a casual and friendly downtown bar-b-q joint setting.

Her dry rub turns into a rich, dark, crisp coating (“bark”) … the signature of authentic North Carolina pulled pork Bar-B-Q … that tastes sweet and spicy, with just enough oak smoke. The fragrant pork is succulent and fork-tender, with incredible depth of flavor.

Nancy’s Bar-B-Q was selected as food purveyor for President Bill Clinton in the Green Room at Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall for the Ringling College Library Association TOWN HALL Speakers Series, September 30, 2009.

Nancy built her business over the past eight years by CATERING throughout Sarasota and Manatee (FL) counties.
