Arizona BBQ Fans Invited To Enjoy Free Barbecue Meal From Award Winning Joe’s Real BBQ on May 5th, 2010

Getting ready for #freebbqday

Arizona BBQ fans are invited to experience one of Arizona’s most famous barbecue restaurants for free!  On Wednesday May 5th, Joe’s Real BBQ in Gilbert, Arizona, is celebrating its annual customer appreciation day by serving free barbecue!

Fans can enjoy their choice of a pecan smoked, pulled pork or chicken breast sandwich, plus fresh homemade coleslaw, award-winning BBQ Pit Beans, and a drink.    There will be children’s sized sandwiches available for the little ones.

Joe’s Real BBQ has won “Best Barbecue” from The Arizona Republic and Phoenix New Times for several years.  Last year they were nominated for “Best Brisket” on Live with Regis and Kelly.  They have also been featured in Chef Paul Kirk’s America’s Best BBQ: 100 Recipes from America’s Best Smokehouses, Pits, Shacks, Rib Joints, Roadhouses, and Restaurants, Sunset Magazine, and Arizona Highways Television.

Joe’s Real BBQ has been celebrating the free food day annually for over 10 years and has given away over 38,000 meals!  This year they hope to serve more than 5,000 people at this enormously popular event.  Customers will also get to meet the “Real Joe” behind Joe’s Real BBQ.    Fellow co-owners Tim and Tad Peelen will also be on hand to personally thank customers all day.

“Giving away free food is a fun way to thank all of our regular customers who have supported us since 1998,” said Joe Johnston, the namesake and co-owner of Joe’s Real BBQ. “It’s also a way for us to introduce our restaurant to people who have never tried us before.”

The free meal event runs from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and then 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Wednesday May 5th, 2010, at their restaurant located in Gilbert.  Customers are encouraged to be in line by 7:30 PM to be able to receive a free meal before the event ends at 8:00 PM.

Joe’s Real BBQ is easy to get to from anywhere in the Valley.  They are located at 301 N. Gilbert Road, Gilbert, AZ, 85234.  Phone (480) 503-3805.  For more information go to: or email
