Noche Mexican BBQ is a bar and Mexican spot, offering barbecue and more.

This new business specializes in Mexican food and barbecue. From brisket flautas to fried jalapeños to shrimp ceviche, this spot offers a wide range of options.

Noche Mexican BBQ's current Yelp rating of three stars out of 14 reviews indicates the newcomer is finding its way, but it's still early days.

Yelper Ryan F., who reviewed Noche Mexican BBQ on July 31, wrote, "Started with chips/salsa/queso. The queso was good, but the real star is the salsa. This has got to be one of the finest salsas in the city."

Yelper Brad G. wrote, "The wait is over and Noche was so worth the wait! ... When checking the menu, my eyes saw armadillo eggs immediately. I do think they're one of the musts on the menu. Try them at least once. Bacon-wrapped jalapeños stuffed with cream cheese and shrimp. I can't even begin to tell you how delicious these are."

Noche Mexican BBQ is open from 5–11 p.m. on Monday-Thursday and Sunday and 5 p.m.–midnight on Friday and Saturday.

Yelper Chuck Y., who reviewed South End BBQ on June 27, wrote, "Great atmosphere to stop in for a beer with a friend or have a large gathering of family and friends. Friendly staff are ready to offer any opportunities to serve their customers. ... Their barbecue is delicious."

Yelper Lynn P. wrote, "The ribs came already basted with their sweet barbecue sauce, were meaty and had just the right combination of tender and chew. The brisket was sort of chopped, no sauce and came on a bun hearty enough to hold its contents even after I added what was my favorite, the spicy sweet (low heat) sauce. This is going to sound weird, but the tater tots were probably the best I have ever had."

South End BBQ is open from 11 a.m.–9 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Sunday, and 11 a.m.–11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Rebecca M. noted, "This is probably one of my favorite brunch spots in to town, the service was quick and friendly. I highly recommend for a great brunch or breakfast. I had the G.O.A.T. and the chai latte. The chicken on the biscuit was seasoned well and tender, the biscuit was perfect — reminded me of being at my parents' house and waking up to a fresh homemade biscuit."

Biscuit Belly is open from 7:30 a.m.–3 p.m. daily.
