MILFORD -- Let's face it, barbecue will never be health food.
But at Joey C's, which opened last month at 11 Berwyn St., it is as close as it is going to get. That's because owners Joseph Catalano, a chef trained at the Culinary Institute of America, and his wife, Ania Catalano, a cookbook author, use all natural and fresh ingredients.

I always get very excited meeting young ambitious entrepreneurs especially ones with a passion for the restaurant business. Joe & Ania Catalano, owners of Joey C’s Roadhouse Restaurant in Milford definitely fall into this category.
The eatery, which features authentic southern BBQ and Tex-Mex fare, originally opened its doors in March of 2010 on Berwyn Street in the Devon section of Milford was basically take-out only with a few tables. Joe & Ania (also Milford residents) developed an excellent reputation and began their journey to expansion. This hardworking couple opened their new Milford location on the Boston Post Road in January 2012 featuring a full bar & private room for special events. Most nights the place is packed with many loyal customers who are BBQ devotees from across the state and regularly make the trip to Milford – again and again.
