Restaurant of the Week â€“ Big Hoffa's
Monday, January 18, 2010 by Hamilton County Tourism
One of my favorite things about Indiana is that the seasons change. Â Leaves turn bright shades of orange, red and yellow in the fall; white snow covers the ground in the winter; and the grass turns a vibrant shade of green in the spring. Â While I love the changing seasons, I do miss the fun outdoor concerts, farmers markets, park visits of spring, summer and fall. Â So, when it gets too cold to do those fun outdoor activities- I eat! Â Every week this winter I will highlight 1 of my favoriteÂ Hamilton County, Indiana restaurants. Â As a foodie (my definition of foodie is simply someone who loves to eat), I will happily talk about the small diners, the â€œhole in the wallâ€? eateries, the fancy French bistros, the big restaurants and more. Â NOW, onto the good stuff â€“ enjoy, and feel free to share your own favorite Hamilton County, Indiana dining spots! Restaurant of the Week â€“ Week 3 [caption id="attachment_1595" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Ribs - YUM"][/caption] Big Hoffa's Smokehouse BBQ - This mouth watering, perfectly seasoned smoked BBQ is a must for both residents and visitors alike. Â I had my first Big Hoffa's experience 3 years ago at a little work gathering - I will never forget the first few bites of that delicious sandwich. Â Big Hoffa's opened it's doors in the winter of 2003, and since then the owner, Adam Hoffman, has been perfecting his sauce and array of entrees. Â The meat on the ribs fall right off the bone, the beef brisket is slow cooked for 30 hours and jerky is not your average stuff. Â Also, a visit to Big Hoffa's will not break the bank - single meals (including drinks & 2 sides) are available for less than $10, and a family of 8 can have a full meal for $50! Â Check out their menu here. Â An 8 Great Towns getaway is not complete without a stop for BBQ at Big Hoffa's in Westfield!
