Instead, we decided to check out Hoke’s BBQ, a great local BBQ place about 5 minutes from our apartment. We had read good things about their food, so we decided to check it out.
First, atmosphere. Think, local bar where the waitress knows what you drink and gets it for you as soon as you come in. They have three tvs in the bar area, and you can still sit in the main sitting area and watch whatever game is on.
The menu is basic, but contains all the essentials: pulled pork, beef brisket, chicken, hot links, and ribs. You can get sandwiches, po’ boys, and meat platters. The sides are coleslaw, tater salad, and bbq beans. There are also sweet potato fries, which are quite good. We tried the ribs, pork, and brisket. Everything was good, and the mild sauce was a nice mix of sweet and tangy. And did I mention the fries?
All in all, we enjoyed our dining experience, and are glad to know that a great local BBQ place is just a few minutes away.
