How to Design a Digital Menu Board for Barbecue Restaurant?

A few key points to take note of while going for the right choice of a menu board design:

  • Choose a right menu board template for your menu 
  • Make sure to choose a template that offers some good room for images to be used
  • Pick up a brown tone of shade for your menu that goes well with the Barbeque theme. Some even prefer to go for chalkboard style. 
  • Choose the font type and size that are easy to read and edit.
  • Highlight the type of barbeque you use – like gas grill, kettle grill, charcoal, smoker or the other types. Diners often would want to know this. 


With the varied barbeque templates that we have with Voolsy Screen, you can go on to select the one that fits best for your needs, in terms of everything like the ease of edits, the ability to modify or add more menu images and menu items with prices.

Check out some of our exquisitely designed barbeque digital menu boards templates that you can simply pick up to set up you menu: 

1. Free Beer Template

offer promotion barbeque menu design

Just two things on this menu and yet it looks quite elegant and amazing. Pick up this template or use the same image we have or put one of your best here. Add your best menu specials as well here. 

Make sure to put minimalistic items on this to restore the clean look of this one. You can go on to create multiple templates  putting menu items of each section and create a slideshow.

2. The specials template

This one offers a good scope to use multiple images along with a good space to add your one special item to the right. 

Again if you are planning to keep this theme for your menu and have a lot of menu items to display at hand, create a slideshow of all of these. Make sure to keep a good amount of time slots on each slide so that it gets enough time to be viewed by the customer. 

3. The classic white one

For all the right reasons, the colour white will never go out of style. This template offers almost every kind of flexibility you need and also the ability to put your entire menu in a single template.

The best part is you have a choice to play with colours that go best with the food images you choose to display instead of sticking to  the brown one that we have.

4. The one with everything

This template would go well if you have a huge menu and want to fit in everything on a single screen. Simply edit the name of the sections and the menus, input the item prices as needed. 

This template even offers the flexibility of adding combo items in the very same template instead of going for a different one altogether for it. 

5. The awesome black and yellow one

We expect you to use this one only for the menu specials that you wish to highlight.
