Best Dishes Barbecued chicken, ribs, pork shoulder, and beef brisket; potato salad; beans; cornbread; pecan pie.
Price Details: Sandwiches $4.50 to $5.25; entrées $8.95 to $13.95.

Why go: Besides the pecan pie, it’s the consistency of the operation and quality of the main dishes and sides that win our barbecue-loving hearts. The piggy memorabilia, the sweet-talking servers, and the lady behind the counter who addresses women as Mama add to the fun.

What to get: Smoky pulled pork (try it with the vinegary hot sauce); succulent smoked chicken with sweetly seasoned skin; tender greens; classic baked beans and coleslaw; fried apple pie dusted with cinnamon and powdered sugar; pecan pie.

Best for: Takeout, which takes ten minutes and beats the hour-or-so wait for a table during rush hours.

Insider tip: The Sunday all-you-can-eat buffet from 11 to 3:30 is worth the wait for a table. It includes pork, beef, and chicken plus sides and cornbread.

Open daily for lunch and dinner.
