Events at MOTOR®

Every visit to MOTOR® is an event, but some visits are more eventful. Especially when you take advantage of our regular – but far from ordinary – events like Bike Nights, Brew Master Dinners, Mother’s Day Brunch, and more.

  • BBQ & Blues

    Every Saturday from May - November, 2016
    All-You-Can-Eat BBQ Special: 5 - 9 p.m.,
    Blues Music: 5:30 - 8:30 p.m.

    Every Saturday through November, MOTOR brings together two true American classics: Blues music and all-you-can-eat BBQ (AYCE). For just $19.95, have your fill of MOTOR’s famous hickory-smoked BBQ chicken, pulled pork, smoked brisket and grilled sausage links – all four is a great start – or add on AYCE Memphis-style dry-rubbed ribs for only $5 more.

    All BBQ platters include AYCE French fries, jicama coleslaw, BBQ baked beans and made-from-scratch cornbread. In addition to all the smoking BBQ, MOTOR will sizzle with the best in true American blues music from nationally known musicians – with no cover charge! Don’t delay in making a reservation for your next great Saturday night as MOTOR rolls out the orange carpet for this perfect pairing of good food and live music.
