Craft Beer Spotlight: Hot Rods American Craft
Hot Rods American Craft got their humble beginnings as a food concession in a local bar in Randolph NJ in 2002. After a decade of off-premise catering experience, Chef and Pitmaster, Anthony Sibona & his wife Toby launched Hot Rods BBQ with a limited menu.
In 2004 Hot Rods opened its own full-service restaurant at 19 N Main St in Wharton. The small 65 seat location boasts as being one of the first true low and slow BBQ pits to open in northern New Jersey. Over the next 11 years, Hot Rods grew its reputation for excellent food & friendly service, winning dozens of various awards in local and nationwide media venues increasing their public exposure.
In 2015 Hot Rods moved again but only down the street where they renovated space in the historic Ross Silk Mill at 175 N Main St Wharton. The larger location now had dining & bar space for 110 and it was also able to increase its Craft Tap Beer & Spirit Selections, including several rotating Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company core and seasonal selections on draft.
In 2018 Hot Rods BBQ rebranded as Hot Rods American Craft Experience and broadened their menu to include more than just BBQ with new popular Pub fare, Burgers, Tacos and menu selections with more clean, fresh, local ingredients. Hot Rods remains focused on rare and exclusive craft beer options with its extensive revolving tap lines and unique bottle selections.
