KC’s BBQ is open with limited hours
Ahead of a June 2nd grand (re)opening, KC’s BBQ is doing some limited preview hours in its new home, the former Meal Ticket space at 1235 San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley. That’s where Meal Ticket made way for KC’s as its owners retired, leaving room for the return of the 1968-founded barbecue restaurant, which was displaced by a fire in 2017. At the new KC’s, May hours are 12 to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday for barbecue, and Sunday for breakfast (no barbecue) from 10 a.m. to to 2 p.m.
