A new BBQ restaurant opened its doors to hungry customers this morning.

Burnout BBQ has moved from its previous site on Islip Road, Sunnymead, to new premises on Banbury Road, Summertown.

The BBQ joint serves Texan style dishes from a custom hot rod, including burgers, hot dogs, glazed ribs, pulled pork, chicken and more.

Owner Malcolm Moore, who started Burnout BBQ with business partner Thomas Trinder in 2018, previously told the Oxford Mail there is “nothing like it” in Oxford and likened it to the trendy Hard Rock Café brand.

Mr Moore, who grew up in Oxford but now lives in Faringdon, explained they had always wanted to move the business onto the high street but had to wait due to Covid-19 and for "the right place to come up".

"We have got quite a strong following off the back of our street food and our takeaway.

"We are the only type of our food in the county pretty much and I think it will be quite well received," he added.

Burnout BBQ will be the third new restaurant to open on Summertown's high street in eight months, following the openings of dessert parlours Temptations and Crêpeaffaire.

Burnout BBQ has open at 263 Banbury Road this morning.

The restaurant will be open 8am to 6pm on Monday to Saturday and 9am to 5pm on Sunday.
