Strouderosa BBQ, a barbecue catering company, opened its first brick-and-mortar restaurant in Lake Highlands on May 24.

The restaurant, located at 9090 Skillman St., Ste. 174A, serves a traditional barbecue-style menu with homemade sauce flavors that include jalapeno, peach chipotle and blood orange habanero.

Strouderosa was previously expected to open by Jan. 1 but faced multiple setbacks due to building repairs, delayed equipment delivery and difficulty hiring staff, owner Trisha Stroud said.
