Smokey Treats Fusion BBQ Restaurant Opens in River Falls, Wisconsin
Tuesday, January 07, 2020
Smokey Treats Fusion BBQ recently opened its doors in River Falls, WI, celebrating a ribbon cutting ceremony with plans for a future Grand Opening celebration. Smokey Treats features globally and ethnically-inspired fusion BBQ dishes with an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients.
Smokey Treats Fusion BBQ, River Falls’ newest fast-casual Fusion BBQ joint, opened its doors at 127 North Main Street in the Riverwalk Square Building on November 12th with plans for a Grand Opening celebration this summer.
What started as a dream of making tasty, smoked treats at fairs and festivals turned into a food truck that has been seen around town for the past two years. Owner Matthew Beranek took the popular BBQ concept of serving authentic smoked meats from the food truck and made the leap to the brick and mortar, fast-casual restaurant this past November, opening with a limited menu and limited hours in the first few weeks of operation. Matthew teamed up with Damon Holter, owner of Croix Valley Foods, a Hudson, WI-based manufacturer of award-winning barbecue sauces and seasonings, to partner in the new restaurant, where they serve what they call Contemporary Fusion BBQ, featuring ethnic and globally-inspired fusion BBQ dishes and a unique menu highlighting ingredients and products from numerous local breweries, wineries, bakeries and meat markets.
