There's no grizzled old papa at Big Papa's standing watch over a hickory fire in the parking lot, but rather one giant Southern Pride smoker in the back. This little storefront outfit works fast -- and with barbecue, speed is made possible only by the intelligent application of technology and mass-production methods. The ribs, the brisket, the chicken and the link sausage all get hours of straight hickory smoke -- which infuses the meat with as much magic as any real pit smoker could -- before they're considered done, wrapped, packed away in the coolers, and then served with Papa's great sauces.
Tips from foursquare
Make sure you say "I'm here for the Baby Back Throwdown" for the FREE ribs sampler!
Ate the brisket and mac and cheese for dinner and it was great. Make sure you try the Carolina sauce!
Fried okra here rocks!
Great happy hour buffet. M-Thur from 4-6pm. Buy 2 drinks eat like a pig....
Big Papa's Englewood closed their doors for good recently. Shame!!
