Project BBQ

Chef Rex Bernales’ Project BBQ is the Fremont Street Experiences’ only full time food truck and its first Carolina barbecue joint which is an awesome style of BBQ if you aren’t yet familiar. Relax in the “backyard” while you feast on freshly smoked BBQ, including the signature Garbage Bowl – handmade potato chips smothered in smoked meats, coleslaw, bacon and a trio of Carolina BBQ, beer and cheese sauces. You can take out or eat while people watching either way you will not be disappointed!   Menu is a step up from other bbq joints and the menu is on the average for pricing but the portions are on the larger size. 

If you have a party of 15-30 people definitely go for “The Hogstravaganza” which includes an entire roasted pig served with sparklers and other delicious items with it! Release you inner carnivore.

The location is small yet quaint and welcoming. The aroma is amazing. The parking is ample. They provide an array of different sauces for different pallets. The sides are very very tasty. 
Once inside you take a gander at the overhead menu. Not long after you see there is also a menu on the area where you order food. The smaller menu offers various combo plates. 

 The upstairs provides a place to unwind and relax with a few drinks. They know BBQ is best with beer so the team set up  16 beers on tap at the tavern upstairs.

 John Mull’s Meats & Road Kill

John Mull’s Meats & Road Kill Grill in Las Vegas, Nevada featured on the Food Network, Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives with Guy Fieri. At John Mull’s Meats you’ll get exceptional customer service at great prices. The prices are as good  or better than most grocery store or warehouse prices. You will find top-quality beef, pork, poultry and a variety of other meats plus cheese, seasonings, sauces and rubs. Take home your meat selections and while you’re there grab a bite of some the best BBQ in Las Vegas at the Road Kill Grill.

This place is a meat lovers paradise folks. They sell their award winning sauce on site and they also will even dress and process the animals you bring to them  , try finding that service at butchers shops anymore and you won’t be able too.

The only drawback is how long it takes them to get people through their line and I don’t know why. The meat (except beef ribs) and sides are all ready and in bins. It takes only a minute for them to pack it in a divided to-go container. So I don’t understand why it takes so long. But it is worth the wait.

Animal Processing prices sample


  • Medium Deer 75lbs. or less $75.00
  • 76lbs. – 100lbs. $82.50


  • Elk (processing) $1.10 per lb.
  • All Boneless add .30¢ per lb

Big B’s Texas BBQ

This BBQ is the real deal! The tri-tip and turkey is amazing, smoky and delicious. The smoked beans and mac & cheese are delicious too. This BBQ joint  is designed to give guests the experience of Brian’s the founder ,home town setting and up bringing and everything he enjoyed and loved about Texas, BBQ and Family. A large smoker sits in the middle of the kitchen where the smell of beef brisket fills the room. Most of the meats at Big B’s BBQ are seasoned with the house dry rub and slow-smoked using Mesquite and Oak. The wood is brought over from family owned farmland in South Texas where Brian grew up. The owner and his wife are spot-on in taking the time to provide ingredient information, even when they’re busy. The picnic-style atmosphere is cute and casual.
