Townline BBQ, an authentic, roadhouse, barbeque joint, opened in Sagaponack, N.Y., in July 2007. The restaurant is owned by Honest Management, Inc., which operates several dining spots in the area, including Nick and Tony's in East Hampton. CCS Architecture crafted Townline's ultra-casual design, which relates to the classic BBQ joints found in the South. The intent was to create a functional, modern "dive" for on-site dining and take-out.

Occupying the old Allison's at the Beach location in Sagaponack, the renovated building is now enclosed with reclaimed barn wood siding and a corrugated, galvanized metal roof. A new fireplace with a tall chimney and large steel letters reading BBQ anchor the structure and create a new identity from the road.

Inside, patrons order and pick-up food at the counter. Built-in seating is made from shop-grade plywood with exposed fasteners and steel. Custom tables, including the large community table and benches, are a mix of galvanized metal, linoleum, and wood. A sink in the dining room gives easy access for hand-washing. The small bar is separate from the dining area, with its own tables and a fireplace. Exposed, bare Edison lamps and galvanized fixtures illuminate the restaurant. The bar and order counter are faced with black slate.

The primary cooking vessel, a large wood-fired meat smoker from Texas called "The Oiler," is positioned in the open kitchen to be seen. A deck with picnic tables for summer use is at the south side of the site with views of the farmland to the south. With 2,000 square feet, Townline has seating for about 75.
