Postseason + Playoffs at Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint

A love for sports is central to the Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint team, and every location is designed with this in mind. Martin's is a great place to catch all the playoff excitement with its all-star lineup of Game Day eats (think smoked wings, BBQ nachos, pulled pork, ribs, burgers, and all the sides), large selection of local and domestic brews (pints, pitchers, cans), and plenty of TVs.

For those who prefer to enjoy the postseason matchups from the comfort of home, Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint offers several take away and delivery options, including catering and large orders. In addition, we've included a few of our favorite football-ready recipes from Pat Martin, below. Pick-up, delivery, and full-service catering are available for gatherings of 15 people or less, and whole hogs are part of the show for parties of 250 people or more.

Titans x Martin’s Bar-B-Que Game Day Eats - BBQ Nachos


Your favorite corn tortilla chip

Yellow Melting Cheese, cubed

Fresh-Smoked Serrano Peppers, chopped

Whole Milk

Pulled Pork

Sweet & Tangy Coleslaw

Martin’s Jack’s Creek BBQ Sauce


Sour Cream


Lime Wedges


Get your pulled pork ready, our go-to is an 18-hour smoked pork shoulder we pull by hand straight off the pit. Make your homemade queso by heating and blending the yellow melting

cheese, fresh-smoked serrano peppers, and whole milk until it runs smooth. Place a mound of your favorite corn tortilla chips on a platter (at Martin’s, we fry our chips fresh to order).


Drizzle a generous amount of the queso over the chips, one layer at a time. Follow by

distributing the pulled pork healthily and evenly all over the queso and chips. Add a sprinkling of sweet and tangy coleslaw. Top with Martin’s signature Jack’s Creek BBQ Sauce, jalapeños, sour cream, cilantro, and lime wedges. To finish, squeeze the lime wedges all over the nachos. Enjoy!

Pro Tip: Save yourself the time and kitchen mess and stop by Martin’s for the pulled pork, or let us just make you a portion and be done with it! These BBQ Nachos are available at Martin Bar-B-Que Joint’s Nissan Stadium outpost, and all Martin’s locations. Visit

Broccoli Salad Recipe - photo credit: Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint

Martin’s Bar-B-Que Broccoli Salad

Pitmaster Pat Martin


4-6 cups broccoli florets ¾ cups diced red onion ¾ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese ¾ cups crumbled bacon ¾ cups raisins 1 cup Martin’s Bar-B-Que Alabama White Sauce or other white barbecue sauce 1 T Mayonnaise


In a large bowl, combine broccoli, onion, cheese, bacon and raisins. In a separate bowl, whisk together Alabama White Sauce and mayonnaise. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate before serving.


One of the Bar-B-Que Joint’s most famous and popular side items is the Broccoli Salad. It’s cool and crunchy and it’s got bacon and cheese in it. After coleslaw, it’s just about the perfect thing to eat with some pulled pork or smoked brisket. Now the salad we serve at our Joints is a secret “Church of Christ Salad” recipe from Pat Martin’s grandmother, and of course he can’t divulge it, but we wanted to give you something that will be easy to recreate at home and satisfy that craving when you can’t make it to our place for the real thing.

Like many of our other recipes, this salad can be made ahead, and might actually be a little better after it’s had time to sit. We use our famous Alabama White Sauce to dress the salad, and that’s all you need. A little mayo will tighten it up, but our signature sauce flavor is all the seasoning required. If you want to add some nuts into the salad, sunflower kernels make a great addition and add a nice extra crunch.
