If you have never been to Joe's Real BBQ before, this is the perfect time to try it. If you have, you know why Joe Johnston, Arizona's own, is so popular. Every year, Joe's Real BBQ takes a day to thank customers for their support in the best way a restaurant can: by offering free food. This year that day is Wednesday, May 7, 2014. During the day the restaurant expects to serve some 5,000 free meals. Customers can swing by for either a pulled pork or chicken breast sandwich with fresh homemade coleslaw, BBQ Pit Beans, and a drink.

Children's sized sandwiches available for the little ones. Only one meal will be allowed per person. During the day no other items will be available and you must be present -- no take out.

Diners are also invited to bring canned food, fruit in particular, or boxes of cereal, to donate to Open Arms Care Center. The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 4 to 8 p.m.

Joe's Real BBQ is located in Gilbert at 301 N. Gilbert Road in Gilbert, AZ. We know that once you go to Joe's Real BBQ once, you will want to keep coming back. Their brisket puts me over the edge. If you have not tried it, it should be on your bucket list.
