There is simply no substitute for some real deal country barbecue. Not just anything can satisfy a craving for stick-to-your-ribs, sweet, tangy, spicy sauce slathered on slow cooked tender meats. Collie’s Sports Bar & Grill is the only option you need for barbecue on Main Street.
Collie’s is low-key, moderately priced, and the ultimate spot to watch the game, or games. The bar and dining areas are stocked full of televisions; no matter where you sit you’re guaranteed a view of your favorite team. True to their name and the nature of Park City, on sunny days the patio is full of locals and their furry best friends. The dog-friendly patio is first come first serve so make sure to get there early to snag a sunny spot to enjoy an ice cold craft brew.
At first glance of the menu, classic BBQ favorites like smoked wings, beef brisket and pulled pork stand out as well as southern specialties like cornbread, fried pickles and sweet potato fries. But what really makes the menu truly special and an impression on any stomach is that the Collie’s crew smokes their meats every day and makes their own barbecue sauce, named Bobby-Q. Their sauce is tangy, a little bit sweet, and comes with a nice kick at the end; no matter what gets ordered, ask for a side (or two) of the Bobby-Q sauce.
The basics of any BBQ menu are nailed at this locals’ spot, but it’s eats like fried green tomato caprese salad, limited supply burnt ends brisket, jambalaya, and handmade burgers that elevate this to a not-your-average barbecue joint. Collie’s gives a nod to their hometown roots by naming each juicy burger after runs at Park City Mountain; a notable combo (and appropriately named) is the Widow Maker, made with fresh beef, Applewood smoked bacon, cheddar, hash browns and a fried egg.
No need to ditch the vegetarian or pescatarian friends either, the menu options include house Applewood smoked salmon, a hefty veggie burger, salads, and loads of vegetarian appetizers to tide everyone over.
Aside from good barbecue, family-owned and family-run Collie’s takes good beer seriously. The beer menu includes local favorites, $6 drafts, and craft beers like Lagunitas and Ballast Point to wash down every bite. Grab your friends, especially if their furry, and roll those sleeves up for good old-fashioned messy barbecue.
