We opened up in 1997 just in time for Turner Field to became the new (soon be old) home of the Braves. Contrary to popular belief we have never closed up in the off-season and just to emphasis that point we tagged the slogan "open 8 days a week".
When we opened, we opened as "Bullpen Bar & Grill". Though we always had a smoker we chose to emphasis the bar style foods likes wings and burgers. That changed in 2011 when we officially changed our name to "Bullpen Rib House". We changed our name to focus on barbecue and our desire to focus on food that we are actually passionate about. If you come down right now be sure to try out the barbecue, though you can't really go wrong with the wings or the tenders.
