Restaurant Guide Category: Barbecue
Only a fool wastes calories here on anything but the meat, slow-cooked over cherry wood. Try the three best in the Smokin’ Pit Sampler: pulled pork, at its smoky peak when chock-full of pinkish charred ends; tender, savory slices of beef brisket; and succulent baby-back ribs. The mostly flavorless sides lack attention; it’s no surprise the gloppy baked beans and mayo-laden coleslaw don’t rate as “famous,” a word thrown around the menu with abandon. Luckily for this wannabe honky-tonk, an outpost of the original Mooresville location, a local beer selection and good blues music make up for any disappointments. Lunch and dinner daily.
