About The hangar bbq


Best BBQ west of the Mississippi...everything is made from scratch in-house and "Smoked on Site".

The "Hangar" actually was an airplane Hangar! 

Built in the 1940's this totally cool structure is now home to the best BBQ Joint in the Central Valley. Hangar BBQ opened in 2010 and is a favorite watering hole of locals and travelers alike featuring live music and comedy on our main stage, and all your favorite sports on the big screen.

The "Pilots Lounge" at the Hangar is  intimate, the perfect setting for enjoying the acoustics of a great band. Like sports? Come join us in the Lounge for UFC fight night, a college game or professional matchup, we have it all on the 82" HD TV in the Pilots Lounge.

Looking for late night entertainment, yep we have it, the "Cockpit" is Merced's party central from 11:00 P.M to closing on Friday and Saturday night. The Cockpit Club features an epic mix of Techno music that is sure to stimulate the inner crazy in everyone that dares to enter!  


Here's a quick recap! Two bars so you are not standing in line waiting for a drink at a big event, one inside and another outside adjacent to the special events stage. In addition to the Hangar's two Bars, Great Food, Night Club and intimate Lounge, we have eight personal fire pits on the outside patio for your dining pleasure. Enjoy a glass of wine or your favorite spirits fireside on a cool winter evening with that special person or group of friends. 

Planning a class reunion, birthday, wedding, Holiday party or company event, we have it all, and we do it all including catering. We can bring the party (including a full bar) to your back yard, company party or special event.
