Popular Columbus barbeque spot launches new brunch service

If we could, there’s a good chance we would eat barbecue for every meal of the day.

And now that Ray Ray’s Hog Pit is offering weekend brunch, we’ve got all three of them covered.

Ray Ray’s, which saw owner James Anderson named a semifinalist for the 2020 James Beard Best Chef Award in the Great Lakes region, surprised Columbus barbeque lovers by announcing a new brunch menu in early July.

“With people making up for lost time over the last year, people are showing up to the Land-Grant beer garden earlier and earlier,” said Ray Ray’s marketing manager Heidi Oliver. “We saw a demand to feed those day drinkers.”


Their new brunch service officially kicked off last weekend, on July 17, at its Franklinton location (424 W. Town St., in front of the Land-Grant taproom). It will continue every weekend throughout the summer, at their Franklinton location only, between 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

And since no brunch is really complete without a quality morning drink, Land-Grant is getting in on the action as well. “Land-Grant will also be offering brunch drinks like a Bloody Mary featuring our BBQ sauce,” Oliver said. 

Not only will you be able to dine on Ray Ray’s regular menu during this time, the lauded Columbus pitmasters have also assembled a handful of special brunch offerings as well.

The new menu includes their Breakfast Wrap (beef brisket, crunchy sweet potatoes, sriracha aioli, cilantro, and white onion), Gaby’s Tacos (white cheddar, pulled pork, guajillo barbeque sauce, fried egg, white onion, and cilantro), and Biscuits and Gravy (featuring fluffy scrambled eggs and house-made smoked meat gravy), adding a touch of barbecue flair to the traditional brunch dish.
