Description

City Pages' Description

This hole-in-the-wall joint brings authentic, southern-style BBQ--thought by many to be the best in the Twin Cities--to University Avenue. In the spot formerly occupied by West Indies Soul, something miraculous occurs as ordinary beef and pork are transformed into heavenly morsels, tender and moist, with just the right amount of char. Having been in the business for 25 years, owners Ron Whyte, Bob Edmond, and Gene "Big Daddy" Sampson know their 'cue, so if you see smoke billowing into the air from the oil-drum cooker in the back, you'd better stop the car. The menu is simple: chicken and ribs or rib tips--beef or pork--with sides of house-made collard greens, slaw, baked beans, or potato salad. Call ahead and order the "Flintstone" ribs for a caveman/woman style feast. Takeout only.
