Charleston's Home Team BBQ is bringing its barbecue and Game Changers to the Columbia community. Beginning on Monday, May 13th at 11 am, the restaurant’s fifth location will offer brunch, lunch, dinner and late-night offerings within Five Points’ old Harper’s building at 700 Harden Street.
The barbecue concept opened its Charleston flagship in 2006, and has since expanded its imprint across South Carolina to four locations, with a fifth location in Aspen, Colorado.
Home Team BBQ has consistently received praise for their food and hospitality from local and national publications alike, including Travel + Leisure, Esquire, USA Today, Southern Living, Huffington Post, and Food & Wine. Furthermore, operating partner and pitmaster Aaron Siegel and partner-chef Taylor Garrigan have represented the restaurant on a variety of national television shows, including Food Network’s Chopped and Heatseekers, Fox & Friends, and Cooking Channel’s Late Nite Eats, Man Fire Food, and Burgers, Brew & ‘Que.
“When the Columbia opportunity came up, we knew we couldn’t turn it down," Siegel said. "This location will allow us to bring our unique brand of hospitality to Five Points, and we are excited to become a part of the Columbia community. We look forward to welcoming our new neighbors into Home Team!”
Home Team Columbia’s menu will be consistent with previous locations and can be viewed here. You can see the beverage menu here. The new restaurant will also have a catering menu available. Online ordering and the restaurant’s loyalty program are forthcoming.
Home Team BBQ will seat approximately 240 guests and an additional 40 on the year-round covered patio, complete with picnic tables and several televisions. Inside seating will offer both low and high-top tables, in addition to booths and large format tables to host parties up to 12.
The restaurant will be open seven days a week, from 11 am to 2 am, with a limited late-night menu available from 10 pm to 1 am and weekend brunch from 11 am to 3 pm.
