ROAD TRIP: Newberry, Backyard Bar-B-Q

Save Newberry lunch trip for special occasion

By Jon Roosenraad, GLOB Historian

ED NOTE: Dr. Jon Roosenraad is a University of Florida Professor Emeritus of Journalism who loves sports, a good cigar, and the smart economy of a cheap, tasty lunch special.

Rocky Voglio Sr. had a nice restaurant when he owned Rocky’s Ribs in the Oaks Mall Plaza in the 1990s. But like many men, he always thought the best barbeque was what he could cook up in his own backyard. So in 1998, he left the big city of Gainesville and moved west to Newberry and opened Newberry’s Backyard Bar-B-Q and has been doing great ever since.
