For many years, readers of the Straight have picked Peckinpah as one of the best barbecue joints in Vancouver.
In the 2019 edition of the paper’s Golden Plates edition, the Gastown restaurant made it to the top three of the most popular barbecue places in town.
Named after the late Sam Peckinpah, a legendary American filmmaker known for gritty movies like The Wild Bunch and The Getaway, the establishment opened in 2010.
Restaurant designer Ryan Murfitt and restaurateur Tyson Reimer created Peckinpah out of a space at the Byrnes Block, a heritage building.
Its corner location faces Water and Carrall Streets.
The statue of Gassy Jack, a bar owner originally from England and after whom Gastown was named, stands outside a window.
The place serves Carolina-style barbecue and other Southern food offerings.
After a decade, Peckinpah has come on the market.
The business of the barbecue restaurant is now selling for $240,000.
The sale includes the 2 Water Street establishment’s liquor license, according to a listing on the Restaurant Business Broker site.
Lease for the 1,500-square-foot restaurant comes to over $8,000 a month.
