Krystal Introduces New Menu Item for Barbecue LoversAtlanta, GA  (RestaurantNews.com)  If the test of any Southern restaurant is how well it makes sweet tea and barbecue, Krystal has stepped up to the plate. In collaboration with the National Pork Board, the South’s original quick-service chain is launching pulled pork Memphis BBQ sliders on Monday, Aug. 31.

“The National Pork Board and our partnering American pig farmers are proud to support Krystal in adding barbecue to its menu,” says James Murray, world certified executive chef for the National Pork Board. “Memphis BBQ sliders are a crave-worthy menu addition that Krystal fans are going to love.”

This new, limited-time-only menu item boasts juicy, slow-smoked pork that’s slathered in Memphis barbecue sauce with a hint of pickle on a freshly steamed bun for $1.69. Guests can complement the BBQ or make it a combo with other Southern-inspired menu items including crispy onion rings, a handspun banana pudding shake and a refreshing watermelon slushie.

Krystal’s Memphis BBQ sliders and watermelon slushie also make a perfect Labor Day treat when DoorDash® provides free delivery all weekend, Sept. 4-7.
