"no surer way of gathering a crowd than holding a barbecue"

Depot Barbecue is 150 years in the making. The historic Madeira Train Depot was built in 1872, and it quickly became the community gathering place. Like many such train stations in small town America, the Depot no doubt hosted many community barbecues.

We honor that historic marriage of railroads and barbecue with Depot Barbecue. Here you will find favorite barbecue staples, from award-winning smoked meats, creamy macaroni & cheese and baked beans with bacon to vegetarian and lighter dishes to decadent desserts and soft-serve ice cream.  Come in for a craft beer, pulled pork sandwich and cole slaw and you might find your toe tapping to blues, bluegrass or big band music.

All aboard!

Download a contest entry, which includes coloring a picture of the pig and offering a name, and bring it to Depot Barbecue. Best entry will win a $10 gift certificate to Depot Barbecue and have their winning entry on display!

Deadline for entry is Oct. 26th.
