Residents and visitors on Perdido Key and the west side of Pensacola can enjoy an eclectic mixture of southern fare, Cajun style favorites and St. Louis ribs at Butch’s Bistro and BBQ. Located in Perdido Key Plaza at 13118 Sorrento Road, across from the Winn Dixie shopping center, Butch’s is open Monday through Wednesday from 11 to 7, Thursday through Saturday from 11 to 8, and they’re closed on Sunday.
There is an amazing variety of appetizers to choose from including Boudin Balls, BBQ Egg Rolls, Fries Poutine (with gravy and cheese or pork, cheese and BBQ sauce), homemade hummus and wings just to name a few. You’ll find the usual burgers, salads, po’ boys and subs in addition to specialty sandwiches like the brunch burger (patty, bacon, cheese and an egg) or the delightfully named KRACKEN (patty, smoked pork, bacon, cheese, pickles and BBQ sauce) if you have a big appetite to unleash. If you’ve got a family to feed you can pick up a party pack of pulled pork, brisket, or a slab and wings.
From Thursday evening through Saturday Butch’s also serves up St. Louis style ribs that have my mouth watering just thinking about them! They are seriously the best ribs I’ve had in ages, seasoned to perfection and falling off the bone tender. Served dry with sauce on the side they are delicious whether you add the sauce or not so grab a plate, combo platter or slab of ribs and try them your way. Even if you’re not on the west side these ribs are definitely worth a trip across town!
Daily specials and homemade desserts are also worth trying out, I highly recommend Pam’s Peanut Butter Fudge pie. You can dine in or call ahead at (850) 492-0007 to place a takeout order. While you’re visiting Butch’s be sure to also check out the delightful local artwork adorning the walls that is available for sale.
