You probably already know that Ottawa has always been a great city to visit for people who love great restaurants, like Ottawa’s Mill St. Brew Pub. But you may not have known that Ottawa is also known for having some great barbecue. Food Columnist Janine MacLean mentioned Annie & Clyde’s Southern BBQ in her popular article “Top 10 BBQ restaurants in Ontario.”

MacLean wrote: “Clyde Ross grew up in the southern US, so when he decided to open a southern BBQ restaurant in The Glebe neighbourhood in Ottawa, he took executive chef Terry Kerridge on a little trip back to his homeland. ‘We headed right out into the south and went to visit a lot of famous BBQ places,’ Kerridge tells us.”

Add to that story some high-quality smokers and a bit of market research and you have Annie & Clyde’s southern BBQ, which opened just this year.

“The reception’s been great,” Kerridge says. It’s true — across the board, Ottawa is giving the best BBQ award to Annie & Clyde’s despite the fact the business is in its infancy. With BBQ classics like St. Louis ribs, Texas Beef Brisket and Southern Pulled Pork, it’s easy to see why there’s such buzz.”
