Ribbon Cutting with Rep Jane Bonner and the Mt Sinai-Miller Place Chamber of Commerce:  Today on December 9, 2023 we are here to welcome a brand-new business to our neighborhood. John and Jake launched their food truck in April 2022.  The business was an immediate success.

In addition to serving our neighborhood, catering events and private parties quickly became the norm and it was becoming clear that if they wanted to nurture and grow this business, they would need to grow into a brick-and-mortar environment.  This location presented itself as the ideal area that they wanted to establish their restaurant and here we are today. We are so proud that we have a local family that is now opening a hometown restaurant in the area that they have lived and raised their family over the years. We wish them much success on their new business venture!

About Struggletown BBQ: After years of traveling the south in his youth and competing on the competition bbq circuit as an adult, Pitmaster John Leonard, developed a passion for what he considers to be the true classic American food, barbecue. Now partnered with his son, Jake, the two have built a state of the art bbq food trailer and developed Struggletown BBQ into the premier bbq food truck and caterer on Long Island. Their food contains the key ingredient that sets it apart from all others…love. Try it once, we guarantee you will be back for more!
