If you’re from the Newcastle area, you’re probably familiar with the barbecue and catfish on offer at Brush Creek BBQ & Catfish.
This family business has been in business successfully for four years and is now announcing a change to its menu.
Last week, the restaurant expanded its menu to include breakfast.
Owners Tom and Reta Gilliam will serve breakfast from 7am to 11am on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Hot and delicious ham, bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs, country potatoes, cookies and gravy, fruit and cinnamon rolls are now available to tempt Brush Creek customers.
The breakfast bar costs $10.50 for adults and children over 10 years old. It only costs $6.50 for children 10 and under. Tom Gilliam said seniors aged 65 and over get a 10% discount on the breakfast bar.
Brush Creek BBQ & Catfish is located at 3246 NW 32nd Street #6565, also known as the northwest corner of State Highway 37 and State Highway 76. The restaurant is in the same building as the Tri City Cowboy Church & Country, and is located between the church and the batting cages. It is accessed by an entrance off of SH-76.
Several employees work at Brush Creek under the direction of Manager Sherri Miller. JoAnn Ray greets customers and runs the cash register, while chef Andra Pickett takes care of the kitchen.
Offerings from the Breakfast Bar join the restaurant’s regular menu with barbecue and catfish; however, there are also tacos made with chicken and bacon, pulled pork or catfish, and a salad bar.
Catfish isn’t the only fish on offer, they also have a seafood platter that not only comes with catfish, but also coconut shrimp and hush puppies.
The barbecue includes minced and sliced brisket, pulled pork, smoked and jalapeno sausage, ribs, pork loin and chicken breast. Customers can order two meats and two sides for $18.95 or three meats and two sides for an additional $1. Sides include macaroni and cheese, fried okra, green beans, baked potatoes, au gratin potatoes, sweet potato fries and barbecue beans.
If you make it this far and you’re still hungry, there’s cheesecake, peach cobbler, and pecan pie for dessert.
Gilliam said the lunch items included burgers, cheeseburgers, brisket, beef rib sandwiches, pork loin sandwiches and smoked chicken breast sandwiches, as well as many entrees from the dinner menu.
Lunch is served from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and a full-service dinner is served from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The Gilliams want to invite everyone to come try out the new Breakfast Bar.
