At this faux-contemporary lodge, with wood booths and Christmas lights, the principal meat is barbequed ribs. Alternatives include pulled pork, burgers, chicken wings, and smoked brisket. Portions are outsized: even nachos are topped with pulled chicken or pork, cheese, guacamole, and other fixins. And crab cakes come deep-fried and spicy, like everything else. But the unfussy mixed-age clientele is happy to throw the cholesterol count out the window and muck around in hog heaven for a few illicit hours. Five different kinds of ribs are available, but Baby Pork Ribs, the house specialty, is the best—doused in a sweet, tangy sauce, the tender meat peels right off the bone. Big doesn't always mean better since the beef ribs, by contrast, are fattier and force you to gnaw the meat off. While beef and pork—dry-rubbed and marinated overnight and then cooked over hickory wood for up to 16 hours—is the main show, the chicken and shrimp are equally good.Recommended Dishes
