Fodor's Expert Review Russell St. Bar-B-Que
Pig-themed bric-a-brac indicates the specialty at this casually hip neighborhood joint, known for its fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs, but there's also beef, poultry, seafood, and smoked tofu dishes on the menu. Big eaters might consider the meat-a-palooza tray, with your choice of three meats, including one ribs option (beef, back, or spare). The candied yams, barbecue baked beans, hush puppies, mac and cheese, and braised mess o' (collard) greens make excellent accompaniments.
