Bo Leg’s BBQ, a beloved barbecue joint previously located in the heart of North Miami Beach and recognized as one of the best local spots for barbecue, reopened at Skatebird Miami last week. The pandemic and other unforeseen circumstances had forced the family-operated business to shut down for two years.
It is now open to the public Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at its new location, and is also accepting online orders through food delivery services such as GrubHub, DoorDash and UberEats.
The Bo Leg’s BBQ comeback was largely the result of a partnership with Hip Hop Eatery, a restaurant kitchen group based in South Florida. Founded by celebrity producer and filmmaker Marco “Mall” Molinet, it uses a team of marketing, business and engineering experts to build containers with full commercial kitchens that can house breakout restaurants.
“Right now, we’re talking to Sistrunk and the Broward CRA, who will pay for their restaurateurs to undergo a training program and have agreed to cover their lease for a year,” said Molinet. “In the program, these people will be able to use the containers and get training to be able to start their businesses. And if they’re doing well, they’re going to move to the next step, which is them getting their own container or splitting it with another vendor.”
