About Us

Our family moved to Northeast Ohio from Humble, TX (a suburb of Houston) in the winter of 2011.  Though there are many things we love about our new home here in Ohio, one thing we missed about living in South Texas was the food, especially Texas Style BBQ.

In the spring of 2016, we opened our first BBQ restaurant in Aurora, Ohio.  The lease space we were operating in had limited parking and seating which made it hard to grow our business.  When the property at 4914 S. Prospect Street became available, we jumped at the chance to move to Rootstown.  In December 2019, we opened Double R Bar-B-Que & Creamery.  We started with just BBQ, but in late January 2020, we made our first run of ice cream and opened the creamery.  Today, both BBQ and ice cream are available year-round.  Along with the traditional flavors, we also have seasonal flavors such as  fruit flavors in the summer and holiday flavors such as Pumpkin Pie and Egg Nog for the Winter.  

We love making phenomenal ice cream, but the bigger part of our business is the BBQ.  Our briskets are hand trimmed and smoked for 9 – 10 hours low and slow on our Cook Shack commercial smokers.  Our Pork Butts for our pulled pork are also smoked 10 – 12 hours.  In addition to brisket and pulled pork, we also offer turkey breast, country ham, pulled chicken, polish sausage, chicken wings and baby back ribs… all smoked to yumminess.    

We are a family owned and operated business.  I work as the General Manager, prep cook and take care of the business side of the store.  Joe is the meat trimmer, ice cream maker and maintenance man.  Both of our children worked their way out of student debt by working in the store.  They have moved on to other things but the time with us in the store will always be special.  

The pandemic was extremely hard for us being a new business just prior to the stay at home orders.  We have survived and have proved we can adapt to even the toughest challenges by sticking to a few basic principles.  To provide great food, friendly service, reasonable prices, and a comfortable atmosphere in our store.  Now that people are able to gather together again, our BBQ is a great option for any event you have planned.   You can pick up at the store or we can deliver for a small fee.  Anything from family gatherings to large corporate events, we have you covered!  Call the store or submit an inquiry using this website.
