BRQ opening Denham Springs restaurant next week

    BRQ Seafood and Barbeque’s new Denham Springs restaurant, the second location for the eatery, will open its doors Tuesday morning.

    The new restaurant is taking the place of the shuttered VooDoo BBQ & Grill, near Bass Pro Shops, and will seat approximately 140 guests. Different from its sister location in Baton Rouge, the new location will have a “BRQ Pit Stop,” a to-go side that caters to call-in orders.

    The Denham Springs location is executive chef and co-owner Justin Ferguson’s 11th restaurant opening. Ferguson, a Denham Springs native, opened the first BRQ on Jefferson Highway, near Airline Highway, in 2017. He formerly worked as executive chef at Stroubes Seafood and Steaks.

    “Look for some similarities between the two locations, but we have gutted and rebuilt the space,” Ferguson says in a release. “We will have something special for my hometown.”
