Zachary’s Old (1894)Train Depot Gets Repurposed Into Maverick’s Q-N-Brew Restaurant
It's an interesting story of how Laura Fontenot and Todd Stevens started Zachary's newest Bar-B-Q restaurant, Maverick's Q-N-Brew.
What started out as smoking meats for personal consumption, developed into a Catering business which has now developed into Maverick's Q-N-Brew Restaurant in Zachary.
Maverick's Q-N-Brew is not just another Bar-B-Q restaurant, this is a smokehouse. Bar-B-Q is typically cooked over an open flame, Maverick's Q-N-Brew is about smoked meats.
Smoking meat is an art that to master sometimes means you have to burn down the smokehouse (twice). Most of us have experienced flame flare ups when cooking Bar-B-Q. For Todd & Laura, those flare up's are what ignited the purchase of a professional 250 gallon pit on wheels.
After countless delay's, Laura Fontenot and Todd Stevens repurposed the Old Train Depot in Zachary into Maverick's Q-N-Brew. It's a two story venue with balcony seating. They were able to keep the original floors and have added bathrooms, a stage, an outdoor patio and more.
During the LSU/Southern football season there will be Live Music every Friday night. After football season there will be Live Music Friday, Saturday & Sunday.
