Look no further for Texas Bar-B-Que! All Friends Smokehouse located on 549 American Legion Hwy Westport, MA is your place for everything barbeque. The restaurant opened in October of 2014, making it 2 years that it’s been serving up the SouthCoast area with award-winning, homemade, fresh, and high quality foods. The full service restaurant offers a good mixture of Texas style BBQ and American cuisine. The beer and wine are from local venders around the SouthCoast. They offer full catering services for any type of event you may have. All Friend Smokehouse uses produce from local farms; the meats are smoked fresh on site and the sauces and dressings are made by the employees.
All Friends Smokehouse believes in giving back to the community and has donated to non-profits such Club Madeirense S.S. Sacramento, Inc., and the Tiverton Library. They have also participated in Downtown New Bedford Inc.’s “Taste of SouthCoast” and “Chowderfest”. The owner Jonathan Abreu, a life-long New Bedford resident, has always been involved in community organizations and activities. Mr. Abreu is looking forward to meeting and working with other business in the area. He says “It is important to be involved in the local community to meet current and future customers as well as meeting fellow business men and women who have gone through similar work experiences.”
