One of our city’s beloved barbecue joints is expanding to another Mid-City location . . . in Alabama! Louisiana natives Philip Moseley and Ronnie Evans, proprietors of the ever-popular Blue Oak BBQ on N. Carrollton Ave., have reached an agreement with Alabama-based real estate firm RCP Companies to open a second location in Huntsville, Alabama.
“We’ve wanted to expand our presence in the Southeast for quite some time, and after visiting Huntsville for
ourselves and seeing the thriving community, it made perfect sense to call this our next home,” said Moseley. “Huntsville’s vibe is so unique, deep with colorful history and demonstrates a culture that is rich in innovation; it mirrors the story of Blue Oak BBQ really well.”
Moseley and Evans are not only bringing their BBQ, cracklins with spicy Sichuan, and killer fried chicken sandwiches, they’re bringing Huntsville a taste of New Orleans for folks in Alabama to enjoy in their own backyard. “The experience of flavors, the ambiance of the surroundings and the creative mindset behind Blue Oak BBQ is a perfect fit for our community and something we’ve been looking for. They’ve built a significant reputation in New Orleans and we’re thrilled to have them as part of the MidCity family,” said Max Grelier, co-founder of RCP Companies, the developer of MidCity Huntsville.
Blue Oak BBQ is slated to open in Huntsville’s growing MidCity neighborhood this Summer 2022.
