This is a small but cute spot, with the smell of smoke wafting up through the air and on to the sidewalk. The décor features some novel touches, like corrugated metal, wood blocks that appear to be dripping in tar, and a black wall strikingly marked by a red, orange, and yellow stripe.
A small service bar has the menu posted overhead; while tables may be laden with such classic barbecue delights as spice-rubbed pork ribs, deeply tender brisket, and smoked pastrami, all of which highlight delicious charred flavor and meltingly tender meat. No doubt barbecue is the main feature, but one can virtually make a meal out of the sides alone. Think: delightfully spongy and creamy corn pudding; slowly simmered collard greens; as well as deeply addictive mac and cheese.
