With coronavirus restrictions in place, this year’s Father’s Day won’t be exactly the same as those in years past. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate – you can still get Dad’s favorite BBQ dishes from Ronkonkoma eateries.

Here in Ronkonkoma, our restaurant scene is top-notch, and that stretches straight to local BBQ eateries – we have a huge array of restaurants which specialize in dishes such as ribs, chicken wings, burgers, sausages and more. Here’s where you can get them without venturing too far from your Alston apartment.

Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill, located at 5012 Express Dr S, Ronkonkoma which is a four minute walk from your Alston apartment, is an easygoing bar and grill known for its smokehouse and barbecue dishes.

The grill masters at Smokey Bones are truly masters at their craft – they respect the power of the open flame, they like simple, yet flavorful recipes and they believe marinating is not to be taken lightly. Here, you can find fare such as slow-smoked pork cooked over 11 hours over hickory logs and other BBQ specialties.

Rolling Smoke Grill, located at 189 Portion Rd, Lake Ronkonkoma which is six minutes from your Alston apartment, began as a food truck which was custom-designed and built in Texas with a New York attention to detail. The end result was a 33-foot-long rolling state-of-the-art kitchen with a built-in Ole Hickory smoker that can smoke up to 450 pounds of meat at a time.

Now it’s a popular local restaurant with an expanded menu from what could be found on the truck. Every item is homemade with the finest ingredients and cooked to order, ensuring traditional, exceptional and authentic Texas barbeque every time.
