This is for a modern Barbecue and Southern foods restaurant. The target audience is affluent, either working professionals or families. It is a quick service restaurant, where you order at the counter but someone brings the food to you.
521 should be the part of the name that stands out; we are open to using an & or + symbol instead of the "and". We are NOT looking for anything cheesy, with animals, and the typical BBQ restaurant logo. We want a clean but creative logo.
Please do not try to copy the examples we are showing. We like the idea of an abstract symbol - like the smoke line, but a symbol is not necessary. the circle and vertical shapes are also not necessary. we encourage you to be creative, but think modern.
