Cranberry Farms Goes Bar-B-Que Brings New Flavor to Campus

This week, the University of Houston welcomes barbeque on its campus for the first time since 2005. Cranberry Farms restaurant in the UC Satellite has recently added delicious barbecue items to its menu.

“One of the things we’ve noticed on campus is that we’ve covered every type of cuisine except for barbecue”, said Tony Urso, Resident District Manager for UH Dining Services. Thus, Cranberry Farms Goes Bar-B-Que will be a welcome addition to the diverse range of dining options currently available on campus. Being located on a metropolitan campus in a city like Houston makes this restaurant a prime opportunity to celebrate the flavors of the south.

Cranberry Farms Goes Bar-B-Que will be testing their barbeque recipes from February 22nd through March 15th. After assessing the new menu’s popularity among UH diners, decisions will be made about permanent menu items and when they will be offered.

Cranberry Farm’s original menu included turkey and rotisserie chicken as well as different sides. The new barbecue menu offers barbecue chicken, sausage links, beef brisket – made with Chef Tori’s secret rub and sauce, and a variety of sides, such as corn, fried okra, potato salad, and tasty homemade corn bread and macaroni and cheese.

Also available for purchase are delicious homemade baked pies and cookies, for a sweet close to the meal.
