Used to travel to the southern States and always loved the BBQ, often from some shabby looking smokehouse tucked away somewhere off the beaten track. You just can't get authentic smoked food in the UK - those that try don't smoke it enough so it's...More

This 34th St. BBQ Restaurant is a great place for authentic BBQ. The ribs are falling off the bone and the sauces are great. Skip the chain BBQ place a block away and go straight to RUB
