About Us

A Tradition of
Delicious BBQ

For over 70 years, the New Riegel Cafe has been a cornerstone of our community, welcoming hungry folks from near and far with the aroma of slow-cooked barbecue.

We started in 1953 with a simple mission: serve up delicious, down-home cooking. What began with Pete Boes' legendary barbecue sauce and a hankering for good food has become a tradition passed down through generations. The torch was passed to new ownership, but our commitment to the cafe's legacy remains as strong as ever.

We specialize in what we do best – slow-cooked ribs and chicken bathed in our secret recipe barbecue sauce. Our menu may be simple, but the flavors are anything but. We use fresh, high-quality ingredients to create a taste that keeps folks coming back for more.

While our ribs and chicken are the stars of the show, we also offer a variety of other options, including beef, ham, and shrimp. We haven't forgotten the sides – our fries, salads, and desserts round out a satisfying meal for the whole family.

We're not just a restaurant; we're a place where friends and family gather over good food and good times. Whether you're a local resident or just passing through, we invite you to experience the New Riegel Cafe tradition for yourself.
