Center Street Smokehouse, est 2001, is dedicated to the true down home taste of the Old South, slow cooked over oak and hickory wood until just right. We serve over 30 tons of BBQ every year pulled pork, St. Louis cut dry rubbed ribs, Texas beef brisket BBQ chicken, prime cut steaks and chops, and unique sandwiches. You don't have to travel to the south for great BBQ when the best of the south is right around the corner at The Center Street Smokehouse. If BBQ was a religion, Center Street Smokehouse would be its Cathedral!!

LA taco wagon transformed into BBQmobile

A former taco wagon from Los Angeles is now a Southern BBQ truck in WNY.

The transformation was made by Cregg Paul, owner of Center Street Smoke House, who bought the truck from a seller in Fayetteville, NC, and drove the truck to Batavia.

It was exciting to see an authentic taco wagon on Center Street for a couple of weeks, but carne asada wasn't in Paul's plans. He's sticking to what he does best: brisket, ribs and pulled pork.


The truck is available for catered happenings and Paul plans on using it at festivals and other public events.

Center street is as all around great place to go. Whether it is going out with my friends and enjoying music or going out with my family for some dinner, Center street never disappoints. Whenever my grandparents come up for the south, this is their restaurant of choice.
