This Bubba isn't from the mountains of North Carolina--he's originally from Iran with a stopover in Memphis to sharpen his craft. The statuettes of pigs announce that the restaurant is dedicated to the enjoyment of pork. But brisket, chicken, smoked beef, burgers, and deli also are specialties.

The ribs come both dry style, with the spices rubbed into the meat, and wet, with a Memphis-style sauce, at $19.95 for a full rack and $9.95 for a half rack, along with two sides. If you like your ribs tart, order them dry and experiment with the sauces on the counter, which are tomato based, mustard based, and vinegar. Other pork offerings include classic pulled smoked pork, Carolina minced pork, and minced smoked pork. These are worth a try, as are the barbecue chicken and the shaved smoked brisket. There is an Atkins special--the meal without bread--and several deli sandwiches. Sides are what you'd expect. Beverages are cheaper than you'd expect. A 16-ounce draft is $1.95, a bottle of Sam Adams is $2.75, a pitcher of draft is $3.95, a 16-ounce fountain drink and coffee are $1.25.
