Frank Ford
Executive Chef

Frank Ford, the culinary mastermind behind Smokin' Blues Barbeque, brings a unique blend of classical training and heartfelt passion to every dish he creates. A graduate of the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu, Frank's culinary journey began in the kitchens of Iraq, where he honed his craft while preparing special meals for troops stationed abroad.

Known for his extraordinary talent, Frank was a pivotal figure in "The Best Feast in the Middle East," drawing crowds from across the country to indulge in his renowned Taco Tuesday Night at Floyd's. It was here that he first understood the profound impact of food on the human spirit – the power to comfort, to bring joy, and to create lasting memories.

During his time in Iraq, Frank learned a poignant lesson: that every meal he prepared could potentially be someone's last. This realization instilled in him a deep sense of responsibility and a commitment to excellence. "Every time you cook for someone, it could be their last meal," he reflects, "That's true for everybody." It's this philosophy that drives him to approach each dish with unwavering dedication and care, ensuring that every bite is a masterpiece.

At Smokin' Blues, Frank's culinary expertise is evident in every dish served. Whether it's his signature barbeque creations or classic comfort foods, each meal is crafted with precision and passion. Frank believes in treating every guest like a VIP, recognizing the significance of every dining experience. "When you come to Smokin' Blues," he says, "you're a VIP every time, all the time."

With Frank at the helm, Smokin' Blues Barbeque is more than just a restaurant – it's a culinary destination where exceptional food and heartfelt hospitality converge to create unforgettable dining experiences.
