Road Kill Grill
3730 Thom Blvd
Las Vegas, NV 89130
America loves to BBQ during the Memorial Day weekend as we honor those who have given their lives for the freedoms we share. There are a variety of different BBQ locations throughout towns and cities across our nation from the roadside stand to chain restaurants featuring their special twist on this American tradition. Las Vegas is no exception. I had heard about a particular local place from a number of different people in our community whose culinary taste I respect and decided it was time to go see what all the hype was about.
The first thing I noticed while turning onto what seemed like a residential street in Northwest Las Vegas was a horse standing the shade of a front yard tree located directly across from John Mull’s Meats and Road Kill Grill. From what I understand the fact that there were only 15 people standing in line waiting to place their order, I had gotten there in time to beat the often maddening influx of folks who know and love quality BBQ. One of the staff stepped out of the kitchen door and began offering Tri-Tip samples to those of us in line. Nice touch and incredibly tasty!
The couple in front of me in line was from Minnesota. The couple in line behind me was from Ohio. Both had been here before and made it a point to come back while visiting Las Vegas. More than anything else, this is a meat market that offers top-quality meats and BBQ products. Tables are located on the premises in a covered outside area. The staff is amazing! It is a clean & simple atmosphere. The smell of both smoked and fresh cooking BBQ pleasantly overwhelmed my senses. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich that I intended to take with me. I sat down at one of the tables to take a bite…I didn’t make it out of the parking lot before consuming the whole thing. To say YUM would be an understatement. Now I understand all the hype!
Featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and I immediately knew why Guy Fieri decided to devote a show on John Mull’s. Unbelievably delicious to say the least!
Established in 1954 and located at 3730 Thom Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89130, John Mull’s Meats & BBQ serves not only the best BBQ experience this side of the Mississippi River, it is also a one of a kind place that first timers are going to go back to time and time again. This place is a must go to. Next time I am having some ribs! +
