City Pages' Description

This ugly duckling of a storefront boasts two orange formica booths, Memphis-style spice-rubbed ribs, pressure-fried chicken, and some of the best barbecue sandwiches in town: They're made with pork shoulder smoked for so long it develops a nearly custard-soft texture and tastes like the ghost of fire and smoke made flesh. In this pocket of St. Paul, ugly ducklings don't grow up into beautiful swans; they mature into feisty, pork-slinging roosters. This rooster caters parties, as well.

    Look, I've never lived south of Prescott, Wisconsin, so to me , this is mighty good bbq.

    Go here for a little bit of Memphis: Get the pork and cole slaw sandwich!
