Fodor's Review

It might seem odd to go to a former auto-body repair shop to feast on meat, but the funky building and courtyard are just the right setting for the serious barbecue served here. A huge wood-and-gas smoker delivers brisket, sausages, ribs—even duck—all ordered by the pound. Sides include potato salad, broccoli salad, and baked beans, but meat is the main event. Pair your meal with one of the more than 40 American whiskeys and 10 microbrews. Come early, as tables fill up quickly, and even at 700 pounds of meat a night, the good stuff sometimes runs out by 9.
