Stacks of wood, banks of TVs, rows of butcher-papered tables—and the alluring smell of smoke—create a warm feeling at this family-owned barbecue joint. The food was mixed on our three visits, but the ribs, smoked half chicken, and burgers were all tasty. From the lengthy choice of sides, we liked the baked beans and corn bread best. If you crave pulled pork, get the creamy pork-stuffed peppers, rather than the sandwich, which can be lackluster on its own (having it topped with the optional cole slaw helps). Add one of the quartet of tableside BBQ sauces to any of the meats for a winning dish. Also try mixing up your own sauce blend to achieve a personalized balance of sweet, spicy, and tang. And think about ordering a sprightly green salad to start. It just might make you feel virtuous enough to indulge in our servers’ “favorite thing on the menu”—a plate of fried Oreos.
