3rd Street Vision

The best from all MIO restaurants with a large comfort influence from the smoker; BBQ ribs, brisket, chicken and cornbread. At 3rd Street Tavern, we believe that great things come in 3's. For us, that is going to be Bourbon, BBQ and Blues. You can expect to smell that smoker burning everyday from miles away. We can't wait to treat you with a little Southern hospitality and Grandma inspired comfort food.
