Boonie’s BBQ & Soul Food

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Sad to hear that as of October 20, 2010 Boonie’s has closed its doors permanently.

This morning I was chatting with a client who recommended a great new BBQ restaurant.  I just happened to be free for lunch and in the area, so I stopped by Boonie’s BBQ & Soul Food to check it out.

It’s a fairly unassuming location inside of the Quality Inn Hotel beside Home Depot in Langley, definitely a hidden gem. The special of the day was catfish nuggets, which sounded interesting. All I could smell was a deep smokey goodness, which I knew had to be ribs – so I ordered myself a half rack with two sides.  Choosing the sides was quite the task: coleslaw, collard greens, real southern mac ‘n cheese, seasoned fries – how can you choose?

Service was swift and before we knew it, two mouth watering dishes arrived on our table.  Oh. My. Delicious. Ribs are my absolute favourite and these were very tasty! The ribs were smokey and the honey bourbon BBQ sauce was delicious.  My husband had the pulled pork sandwich which was also delicious. I was completely unprepared, so I only captured this one photo with my phone. Looks yummy, eh? The menu was full of southern favourites – jambalaya, sweet potato pie, hot links, southern mac ‘n cheese. Boonie’s also has a kid’s menu, which is great!

Executive Chef Boonie Sanders learned how to cook from his Granny, whose photo hangs near the kitchen. When she passed on, his promise to himself was that he would keep her recipes alive.  Some of you may recognize Boonie’s as the restaurant used to be located in Cloverdale.

Take out and catering services are available.  We enjoyed hanging out at the restaurant, listening to the jazz music and chatting with Boonie.  In the summertime, he shared, there will be live blues performers out on the patio.  We’ll definitely be back to check that out!

If you love BBQ or you’re looking to try something new in Langley, check out Boonie’s BBQ & Soul Food. As you can see, the portions are generous too… leftovers for dinner, woo hoo!

    I can’t wait to try this place out.. it’s walking distance from where I work! My colleagues and I have plans to do some “taste testing” on our lunch “date” next week. :)

  4. Found this treasure opening week. Have decided to go every week and try the whole menu, it is that good. Did the Boonie burger 2 weeks in a row though. Way too good and a value at that. Jambalaya tonight was fantastic, nice change from chipotle flavoured that I am used to.
