We are a BBQ/Open Bar Restaurant that caters to all age groups. We serve competition style BBQ until 9:00 then we have a live band and open bar with a person cutting meat at the bar for brisket tacos. We are wanting to be the place to come eat and party. Kids will not be allowed to come on Fri and Sat nights. We need to use the work Sideways and saying "Rub It Till It Smokes" on our lights that will be on the building so it must be easily recognizable and readable and fun looking. We want the logo to attract BBQ eaters and people that want to come hang out and party at night. So both audiences are what we want to attract. We have left the letters BBQ out of the logo for this reason. When they enter the restaurant then they will know that its BBQ.
I've attached what we had made. We don't really like it. We want it to be more fun but at the same time communicate that we are a professional BBQ restaurant with great food. We need the words to express this as well and at the same time very readable. Like I said, we will be using the words to hand on the building. Thanks and look forward to seeing what you come up with!!!
