Slim's BBQ taking over former Rumpus Room space on Main Street

Jan 19 2021, 11:13 pm

First, there was The Foundation, then there was the Rumpus Room, and now, Slim’s BBQ is gearing up to open at 2301 Main Street.

This BBQ destination is slated to open very soon, like February 1 soon.

It’s brought to us by Christina Cottell and Shoel Davidson (Dixie’s BBQ, Gringo) and David Duprey (Emerald, Key Party, The Narrow, Rumpus Room, Taco Night, and Uncle Abe’s).

These folks have teamed up to bring us the Dixie’s BBQ vibe and concept to Main Street under a new name, Slim’s.

Dixie’s closed its Vancouver restaurant back in the summer of 2019. That closure left a rib-shaped hole in our hearts ever since, so it’s safe to say we are very excited to devour the eats at Slim’s once it opens.

Slim’s BBQ will offer patrons authentic Austin-style barbecue along with easy-drinking house cocktails.

Eats like fried chicken sammies, brisket, smoked pork butt, hot links, and ribs will all be up for order along with sides such as mac n cheese, buttermilk biscuits, and cornbread to name a few.

There will also be a build-your-own-BBQ platter option, which is ideal for many of us meat lovers.

Come February, this spot will be open seven days a week from noon to 10 pm, and it will offer dine-in, takeout, and delivery for lunch and dinner. Weekend brunch is also in the works.
