Sides BBQ & Catering to Hold Soft Opening This Weekend

by Patrick Herron

Sides BBQ & Catering will be holding its soft opening this weekend from 11am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday.  Sides is a “ghost kitchen” operating inside of Sam’s Pizza at 15855 Redland Rd in Derwood.  The restaurant tells us, “Chef Jackson loves BBQ, loves to cook, and was frustrated with good entrees that came with lackluster sides. It’s as if restaurants put all their focus on the meat and the sides get whatever time is left. We treat everyone equally! Our SIDES are part of the main cast and not just understudies!”

Sides will be available for pick up, curbside, and delivery. The menu features fried fish, fried chicken, pork chops, ribs and pulled pork. Side dishes include candied yams, garlic mashed potatoes, baked beans, mac & cheese, and green beans & cabbage.

“Our family roots originated in Granite Quarry North Carolina. My Grandmother and children migrated to DC in the 1950’s. My granmother  “Sadie” is the southern cusine goddess of the family. I watched her as a kid gracefully navigate the kitchen with ease.
My mother the seamstress, cook, spiritual presence allowed us to flourish. My parents met at a blue collar job in Detroit, Mi. Home of soul. This where Chef Jackson was born. King of the oven with no direction.
I cooked my first full meal at the age of 16. Throughout my travels I have learned a lot about putting the food together with a perfect blend of spices. I know what soul food is suppose to be like. Come and enjoy my wholesome expression of food. You won’t be disappointed…”
