Dead End BBQ in Maryville: New restaurant chooses busy downtown intersection at Broadway Ave., Lamar Alexander Parkway
“Barbecue is a destination place” — and George Ewart, owner of Dead End BBQ, wants to make Maryville one of those destinations when he opens his second restaurant in October.
“There is a clique in barbecue where people travel around and eat at barbecue restaurants,” Ewart explained of a demographic study of his customers he had done two years into owning his first restaurant.
