“You have to be an artist to master the grill,” says owner Derrick McCray. The restaurant name came from his father, Herman McCray, Assistant Pastor at Greater Bethel Primitive Baptist Church in Riviera Beach. The McCray family has over 86 years of grilling, which Derrick continues with McCray's Backyard Bar-B-Q.
From the quality of spare ribs and brisket to the perfect collard greens and mac n' cheese, quality is at the core of our BBQ.
We are the place to be for lunch, dinner and everything in between. Our goal is to serve the community with the best BBQ and homemade items that give a nod to the Backyard Bar-B-Q from which we came. Drive through, pick-up or place your order through delivery starting at 11 a.m. each day.
If you are looking for fast service and food that is served with a smile, then you have arrived! We know how to serve food that is out of this world, and our employees are trained in health and food safety, and love what they do, which means great service for you!
McCray's is about history and legacy. From humble beginnings to catering the Super Bowl, we are renowned for our backyard style and ode to our neighborhood. We serve classic Floribbean with our world famous Twist Sauces, and our chicken and rib sandwiches are made the good old way.
We help our community because not only is it our duty to give back, but because the McCray family has been on the frontlines of Civil Rights movements for decades, as well as driving philanthropy in Riviera Beach, West Palm Beach, and South Florida.
