3 Bros Food-11After 22 years of serving in the Army including tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan, Riverview resident Jerry Fisher was ready to start something new.

Armed with a passion for cooking BBQ, a love of serving people, and help from his family including pit master brother-in-law James Lewis, it was only a matter of  time before Fisher was set to open the community’s newest restaurant appropriately named Three Brothers BBQ Smokehouse.

“I wanted to build a family- style, entertainment-driven and community-oriented restaurant that specializes in pit-cooked BBQ meats while it serves up a variety of different menu items based on the famous Carolina BBQ and flavors,” Fisher said.

Since its opening last month, Three Brothers BBQ Smokehouse has been serving up lunch and dinner with flavors striving to appeal to a variety of people from Texas style brisket, to St. Louis style ribs and Kansas City BBQ sauces that are coupled with sides based on a few old family recipes, all of which fuses together southern cooking and Latin food.

Located at 11238 Boyette Rd. in Riverview in the Shoppes of Boyette Plaza, Three Brothers BBQ Smokehouse offers a full bar and music venue.

In a recent interview, Fisher did not hesitate to emphasize his vision for the restaurant and its community oriented mission, which he said is focusing on attracting current and retired military, first responders, civic and church members within the 3bros-peolecommunity. True to his word, patrons get a chance to experience live music performers during special daily events such as gospel brunch, seniors day, Latin night and more.

Three Brothers BBQ Smokehouse is open Tuesday and Wednesday 11 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m.-11 p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m.-8 p.m.

Fisher and his family support local charitable organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project, Special Operations Warrior and Disabled American Veterans by sponsoring fundraising events. Visit www.threebrot hersbbq.com or call 570-6995.
