Half Liter★ ½

Barbecue

Tucked into the soaring back half of the complex that houses its sister restaurant, Liter House, chef Blake Ellis and owner Eddie Sahm’s Bavarian-themed barbecue-and-beer hall has all the rollicking, cheeky energy of Oktoberfest with the laidback charm of a Texas brisket pit. And brisket is what you want to order here, superbly juicy and with a perfectly bronzed bark to show off Ellis’s considerable skills at the smoker. Get it on a platter with equally excellent smoked wings and sides of collards, ranchero beans, and waffle fries. Snacks range from a Frito pie with the day’s smoked meat to a “sorta torta” with pulled pork, a kicky hot link, and guacamole. A pet-friendly, two-story covered patio makes this place especially welcoming in warm months, but quaffing a textbook German dunkel or Kölsch within smelling distance from the pit is a barbecue lover’s heaven in any season. Lunch and dinner daily.
