Haven't had my Boonie's fix in a while. I went all out and ate the pulled pork sandwich, smoked ribs, collared greens, and cornbread. My problem is that I find both the pulled pork and ribs so good, that I can't bring myself to visit Boonie's and not have each of them in one sitting. I also took home a peach cobbler and pecan pie.

Pictured below is the mini pecan pie (pics of other stuff already plastered through this thread).

I take my son skating every Wednesday night at the rink next to Boonies which makes not going almost impossible. The pulled pork is better then the ribs IMO.

Boonie's BBQ and Soul Food is closing! Last day they're open is Friday April 3 from 3PM-9PM.

Last chance for Boonies BBQ & Soul Food!

... for a couple of months anyway... We are excited to announce that we are in negotiations to start up a REAL restaurant!

Planned completion is June 2009 - we will be posting more details as they become available.

Ribs in a Curling Rink? Who would have thought that was even possible ...and here we are just over a year later with many regular customers and loads of excellent reviews!

In the meantime, 5 Star Catering, whose catering facilities burned down a couple of weeks ago, has made us an offer for our space at the Curling Rink. We are truly sorry for the late notice but this Friday night will be our LAST night at the Curling Rink. It's been a LOT of hard work juggling both the curlers and restaurant customers, but we're glad we gave it a try and are looking forward to being able to focus solely on the restaurant customers in the future.

Try one of these options to stay in the loop:

Watch the Restaurant page on the website - www.boonies.ca
Join the mailing list on our website Contact Us page
Join our Facebook Group: Boonie's BBQ & Soul Food
Follow us on Twitter: www.twitter.com/BooniesBBQ
Plans are also in the works for Boonie's specialty food line: Hot Links, Cornbread Mix, BBQ Spice Rub... and more!


Thank You for Being Part of Our Success! I'll be back!

Noooo... and I won't even be able to make it tonight for one more pulled pork sandwich. Hopefully they re-open in June somewhere, it will be a shame if they don't.

I know I just received the email from his mailing list last night. I'm going to try to make the trek out tonight, hopefully he still has some food left when I get there. From his latest tweet on twitter it sounds like theres limited food and a lot of people stopping by.

Insider Info (not really, just talk to Boonie and he'll talk all day)

The new Boonie's looks like its gonna be in Walnut Grove, so just a quick exit off the Langley exit, he also wants to have a Jazz band playing in his new place and a ton of other stuff...

And man I need to get some ribs tonight, cause waiting til June gonna suck...

Maple Ridge wtfffff

I used to live 5 minutes away from Boonies. Now I have to pay a toll to get there. The chances of myself going there often are slim to none.

I know rent is probably cheaper out there then it is in Surrey, but I think he is making a bad move going to Maple Ridge. His trade area has just shrunk DRAMATICALLY.

Maple Ridge has a population of approx 70k, while Pitt Meadows is a tad shy of 20k I believe. Add in the other small un-incorporated communities in the area, and you are looking at probably 100k people for a trade area.

Now look at Surrey, which has over 400k in population alone, and add Langley and Delta into the mix and you are well over half a million people.

He is probably banking on the fanbase he created from his Cloverdale location, but for most families that went there (and when I went there there were always quite a few), it is not economical to drive 30 minutes while paying a toll to eat at Boonies. There is only a certain distance people are willing to drive for a meal on a consistent basis.

He will still do OK, because his food is quality, and will serve the Maple Ridge area well, but he is missing out on larger markets by moving farther out.

I'll try to make my way down to his restaurant once, because that pulled pork was heavenly.

Edit: The price of commercial space has come down significantly all over the Lower Mainland, especially south of the Fraser, so I am also confused why he left the Surrey area which was more central to Richmond, Delta and Vancouver customers.
