Schweinehaus Trades Bavarian Fare for Barbecue

German-themed restaurant Schweinehaus is taking its menu in a new direction: barbecue.

The Overton Square eatery – which has appended its name to Schweinehaus BBQ – issued a statement Wednesday, Nov. 16, that says diners will still find chicken schnitzel on the menu, along with pulled pork, pork ribs, beef brisket, smoked turkey and other new items.

“Since our humble beginnings, we have always used smoking as a way to express our Memphis heritage throughout our menu, but now it IS our menu,” the statement reads.

The restaurant’s four owners, all lifelong Memphians, opened Schweinhaus in 2014 in the former Paulette’s space at 2110 Madison Ave. Last month, the restaurant began teasing its new menu on social media.
