Here's the news we've been waiting for. Joseph's Riverport Bar-B-Que is reopening tomorrow, Thursday June 28, after a fire that totaled the restaurant last January.

Owner/pitmaster Stephen Joseph sends these photos of his new joint, which was rebuilt from the ground up on the original location at 201 N Polk Street in downtown Jefferson. He installed a new Bewley pit, which he has been breaking in for the past couple of months.

My wife Michele and I will be heading over for a return visit this Saturday. We had some great BBQ during our last trip there, ranking Joseph's Riverport BBQ as one of the best BBQ joints in east Texas.

I'll post a report and more photos after our visit this weekend.

Joseph's Riverport Bar-B-Que: 201 N Polk St, Jefferson, TX, 903-665-2341. Open Tues-Sat 11am-7pm, Sun 11am-2pm.

Excellent! While your over there take the short drive to Karnack for great catfish at another east texas legend, the big pines lodge. Both places are famous and people drive from all over just to have bbq in Jefferson and catfish in karnack. @Cajunscouse.
