Corning’s Gaffer District Welcomes Slammin’ Jammin’ BBQ to Northside District


Corning, NY – July 2, 2013 - Corning’s Gaffer District is excited to welcome Slammin’ Jammin’ BBQ to Corning’s Northside.

Located at 37 E. Pulteney St., the restaurant opened this spring with one goal in mind­–to provide homemade, authentic Texas-style barbecue food to the local community. 

Owners Shelley McCullough and Ben Lewis are no strangers to the cuisine­­–with roots and experience in Texas, they bring a flavor to the area that parallels none other.  Specialties include popular barbecue meats including baby back ribs, brisket, pulled pork, sausage and chicken– all of which are smoked on-premises every single day.  In addition, customers will enjoy homemade sides such as coleslaw, fresh-cut French fries, cornbread and baked beans.

Following a lifelong dream of becoming an entrepreneur, Lewis knew that Corning was the perfect place to start the business, noting, “Being a part of a community like this is so important to us.  We are thrilled to be here and already welcoming regular customers to the restaurant.”  Lewis notes that, within only a few months of being open, the restaurant is serving hundreds of customers each week and enjoying a line of patrons out the door–literally–during the popular lunch hour.

The restaurant is open 7 days a week; customers are encouraged to find Slammin’ Jammin’ BBQ on Facebook to find out the daily specials offered by the restaurant.

A grand opening is scheduled for 2013.  For more information, visit Slammin’ Jammin’ BBQ at 37 E. Pulteney Street or find them on Facebook.
