4019 Kennett Pike
It’s packed most nights of the week, partly because of the excellent location, partly because of owner Dave Dietz’s outstanding choices of beers, and partly because of the frequent fundraisers Dietz hosts there.
In the weeks following the opening of BBC Tavern and Grill, owner David Dietz referred to the phenomenon as a family reunion. Customers, staffers and many more all clamored toward the resurrected Brandywine Brewing Co. (sort of), its famous soft pretzels, good beers and rockin’ nightlife. It’s all back and loaded with even more good stuff: sublime slow-roasted ribs, pan-seared sea bass, superb salads and more.
At BBC Tavern and Grill, divine bar munchies remain the backbone. The famous warm soft pretzel sticks and the scene-stealing homemade apple mustard and hot horseradish mustard are must-haves, as are monstrous nachos, smoldering baby-back ribs (with cornbread), and tasty flat bread topped with figs, caramelized onions and goat cheese.
