TJ Billies BBQ has come a long way since their inception, having started as a humble market stand in 2013. Following its popularity among meat-loving locals, it found permanent residence in vibey Northcliff and opened its doors to the public toward the end of 2015. Today, the owners, Paul and Jules are dedicated to their vision of introducing classic, southern-style dishes and slow-cooked meats to Johannesburg diners. The meals, made with love, care and attention to detail, are cooked using fresh, good quality meats and produce.
At TJ Billies BBQ you’ll be treated to a relaxed dining experience, where you can slurp on a couple of craft beers and snack on a bowl of chilli on the outside terrace, or enjoy a more intimate affair inside. The restaurant is minimally decorated, where slats of bare timber are found on the interior walls. The design gives the restaurant a homey ambience, making customers feel as if they are within the comforts of their own homes.
If you’ve got a rumbling stomach and are in need of a quick snack, give the ‘Refried Bean Nachos’ a try. Not only does this meal cater to the needs of vegetarians, but provides you with a mouth-watering bowl of corn nachos that are topped with refried red beans, a spicy tomato salsa, guacamole, TJ Billie’s signature sauce and melted cheese.
Diners with a hearty appetite will be left feeling suitably satisfied with ‘Billy Bob’s Beef Brisket Sandwich’. This dish is prepared using an entire beef brisket that is slow-cooked and coated in a basting sauce. The meat is then thinly sliced before being placed on a bun, topped with some ‘slaw and served with a generous heaping of shoestring fries.
If you’re looking for a dessert that combines sweet with savoury, opt for heaped spoonful’s of bacon and banana ice cream accompanied by American pancakes. If, however, you’re looking for a classic sweet treat, savour over a slice of New York Cheesecake.
