Who We Are


O'Doherty's, Southern-Style BBQ and Catering

In 1992, Terry partnered with the O'Doherty family and helped build the downtown O'Doherty's Irish Grille. In 1997 we built Smokey's BBQ at this location and then turned it into an Irish Pub in 2001. In 2002 Terry and Renee Best took sole ownership of this location and changed it into O'Doherty's Irish Pub & BBQ CATER Co. Over the last few years, a friendship was fostered between Todd McCracken and Terry Best, and they would crack jokes over friendly banter in the restaurant about Todd buying the restaurant and running it himself.  In October of 2019, those stopped being friendly jokes, and turned into serious interest. That interest gave way to the reality of Todd taking ownership in March of 2020.  Though the ownership has changed, Terry remains and integral part of the operation, a central piece of the catering business, and can be seen at the restaurant on a regular basis. Todd brings the same hospitality and flair that has come to be a part of the O'Doherty's culture.  Stop by and say hi and try some of the best food in Spokane valley!

Our superior quality meats are rubbed with a proprietary spiced rub blend before going into our authentic Southern-style Smoker right here on premise--where the meats are slow-smoked to perfection over Apple Wood from the local Green Bluff area.

We hope you enjoy this BBQ as much as we enjoy providing it for you. Please consider us for catering whenever you have an event. Catering menus are available at the register or ask your server. Also see www.odohertysirishpub.com.
