Atlas BBQ opened at the end of 2012 and features the tagline "Beer. Bourbon. Barbecue." With good reason.
Located inside the Paramount Plaza in Grafton, Atlas offers food and sauces made from scratch as well as a large selection of beer, wine and bourbon. Burgers and desserts are also available.
Owner Michael Tsuchihashi picked the name "Atlas" because he did not want to limit the menu items to one region or style. Hence, the recipes are from Texas, Kansas, Memphis, the Carolinas, Asia, South America and the Middle East.
"It seems every country and culture has some form of barbeque and we want to explore them all," says Tsuchihashi, who ran the restaurants at Potawatomi Bingo Casino before leaving to open Atlas.
The grilled pork and blue cheese sandwich with caramelized onions sounds really good to me, as do the barbecue nachos, but we’ll see what food writer Lori Fredrich recommends when she posts a food review of Atlas in the near future. Stay tuned.
Delicious BBQ, this is a must stop in Grafton. The Pulled Chicken Nachos, Fried Pickles, Wings, Burnt Ends are some of the best apps I have had in any restaurant. Love the Ribs , Brisket, Atlas Fries and Pulled Pork. The Key Lime pie tops it all off and I also enjoyed the house specialty drink called the "Silent Whistle"! I also have to give credit to the Altas team for creating house made sauces. It is a very difficult thing to do and they hit the mark on all four corners of the map. I am a big fan of the North sauce and my wife loves the East. Atlas is kid and family friendly too!! Now I want BBQ!
