Jack’s Bar-B-Que – Nashville, TN

Not realizing that there was a free New Year’s Eve concert in downtownNashville, we headed down to Broadway to grab some lunch.  That explained the cordoned off streets and exorbitant parking (at noon).  We found a paid lot next to the Ryman and walked down to Broadway in the drizzle.  We turned the corner past […]

Bub-Ba-Q – Woodstock, GA

Bub-Ba-Q is a place that popped onto my radar with an Atlanta Magazine article from July of 2010 which, after their ranking of the top 5 BBQ places, listed the other places they had tried, by county.  This list was invaluable, providing places I had no idea about.   Now Cherokee County isn’t a place […]

Jackie Hite’s Bar-B-Q – Batesburg-Leesville, SC

 We first tried to eat at Jackie Hites Bar-B-Q several years ago. I can’t tell you exactly when it was, but I do know that it was a Tuesday. “How do I know”, you ask? My notes are very clear (in BOLD CAPS) that they are closed for lunch on Tuesday. They’re pretty clear […]

Hickory Hut – Dallas, GA

Having driven by the Hickory Hut BBQ dozens of times, I finally had the chance to visit on this Friday.  Just under the bridge, as you head west out of downtown Dallas, they are there on the right, where they’ve been since 1965.  For a place that advertises no phone and no sign, I was […]

JD’s Bar-B-Que – Woodstock, GA

As we were roaming around the northwest suburbs, lunch time rolled around and I was (of course) searching the area for a spot.  JD’s Bar-B-Que appeared on my phone, and I set our travel plans toward Bells Ferry (they also have an Acworth location).  They’ve been open since 1999 and at some time in the past […]

Anna’s BBQ – Atlanta, GA

About mid way through “Barbecue Week”, there was an article on Eater.com – Atlanta about where the local chefs like to eat barbecue.  I love these articles as they always point out some place that I didn’t have on my radar.  This time, the blip was Anna’s BBQ, in Kirkwood.  A couple of the chefs […]

The Rib Ranch – Marietta, GA

I’ve driven by the Rib Ranch for at least twenty years – it’s in a really awkward spot on Canton Highway, just east of I-75 that I am fairly certain that you cannot make a left into when heading east.   Or a right out of when you’re leaving.  There was a write-up about them in […]
