Equipped with one of the area’s last remaining historic wood-fired barbecue pits, we are informed by the traditions and styles that have come before us, and we honor the greats who have stoked the pits in the wee hours of the night.
From 4505’s very beginning when Ryan started selling Chicharrones at the Farmer’s Market, we have strived to keep it simple and always follow our stomachs. We respect those who’ve come before us, but we do things our own way, the 4505 way.
