It’s official: Little Miss BBQ will open in the Sunnyslope community by spring of this year.

Nugget Landholdings LLC, a limited liability corporation formed by Little Miss BBQ founders Scott and Bekke Holmes, last month purchased a freestanding building at 8901 N. 7th St. for $725,000. The building is located in the Walgreens Center at the northeast corner of 7th Street and Townley Avenue. It was built in 1965 and has been a Payless Shoes and a Western Union bank, and most recently was a CheckSmart.

Little Miss BBQ has attracted a huge following and diners have been willing to wait more than an hour in line for the restaurant’s delicacies at its original location at 4301 E. University Drive. Little Miss BBQ specializes in Central Texas style barbecue, served meat market style—meaning, all of the freshly barbecued meats are served by weight in butcher paper with onions, pickles, jalapenos and white bread.  The meats are cooked using Arizona oak and pecan wood in massive offset Camelback Smokers.
