Proprietor Daniel “Pepper” Morgan has an impressive résumé. More importantly, he learned to cook from his grandmother, who taught him the recipe for her barbecue sauce (tangy, smoky and practically drinkable) and passed on to him the soul of soul food. All of the barbecue at Pepper’s is spectacular. On the side, good luck choosing between collard greens with smoked turkey, garlicky mac ’n’ cheese, molten-hot fried okra and sweet potato corn bread. Closed Sunday. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Everyone loves good, old-fashioned barbecue, and you’ll find heaps of it at the County Line. It has everything you could want: sweet corn on the cob, coleslaw, brown-sugar beans, you name it. Oh, and meat, meat, meat. The baby back ribs are especially good, as is the homemade hickory barbecue sauce. Wash it down with a pint and phenomenal city views, and you’ll be feeling right at home on the range. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This brewery has quite a following, both for the beer and as a “New Mexican soul food” gastropub. The menu offers specialties of New Orleans style gumbo and the delicious marriage of chicken and waffles. It’s just the place to take your corn-bread-and-Frito-pie-craving friends while still getting your craft beer fix. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

The pulled pork at Rudy’s makes us drool like dogs under the dinner table. Heaped up between two slices of pillowy white bread and kissed with sauce, the beef and pork ribs are absolute hog heaven. Rudy’s dining room takes “spartan” to a new level, but as the weather improves, so does our opinion of sitting out on their covered patio. Don’t forget to try the breakfast tacos with your choice of Rudy’s justifiably famous meats. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

For a full course of fine lunchtime cuisine, try the tofu kimchi appetizer, ginger tea and spicy chicken box plate. Nothing in Nob Hill goes down better. Go big on the appetizer list for the taste, but if you're cutting costs, the box plate menu offers more than enough chow for a starving midday appetite. And you can use the extra pennies you saved to splurge on a sake. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

We coastal ex-pats thank God for small mercies like Down N Dirty Seafood Boil. Nothing instantly siphons the sea inland like sticking some steamy crustaceans in your face. And nowhere can you stick steamy crustaceans in your face with such abandon as at Down N Dirty, where the seafood is ordered by the pound and eating it is a question of no-frills efficiency. You’ll leave feeling like you just returned from a seaside vacation. (Alibi Staff, May 21, 2014)

Thick slices of beef, tender barbecued chicken and unbeatable cornmeal-dusted catfish are just a few of the items that make this a premier restaurant to blow your diet sky-high. But what really pushes this place over the edge are the fantastic side dishes: like addictive fried okra smoky, salty greens and tender black-eyed peas, which are prepared with the same reverence and care as the main attractions. We forbid you from leaving without first ordering a slice of superb sweet potato pie or a piping-hot bowl of cherry cobbler à la mode. Aw, what the hell—just get both and die happy. If you’re in a hurry, you can order to-go items from a side pickup area. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Yes, Golden Pride is technically a fried chicken joint, but it also serves fantastic barbecue and the best damn portable burritos in town. Drive through and order a flock of wings, a rack of ribs and a passel of No. 9 breakfast burritos (with bacon!). It’s all good with beer, by the way. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Back in business after a fire shuttered this location for a few years!

While The Cube’s presentation is upscale, the portions you’ll get are of standard barbecue proportions, unlikely to send you home hungry. Ribs, chicken, brisket, links and pulled pork are hickory-wood-smoked and prepared with a spice rub (“dry”) or drenched in tangy, smoky, sweet, acidic sauce (“wet”). Both versions are excellent. Hot dog lovers will have plenty to chew on with Chicago dogs, bacon-wrapped Guadalajara dogs and 505 dogs (bacon, avocado and green chile). And with mapley candied yams, mac and cheese, and skin-on fries, the sides at The Cube are hardly side notes. To wash down your meal, there’s a wine and beer list and a hefty menu of house-made mousses, pies and muffins for dessert. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

You’ll probably have to battle full parking lots and at least a moderate wait, but these delays, annoying as they may be, are one of the best “reviews” a restaurant could hope for. Inside, the dim lighting and rustic décor easily fade away when an enormous pile of tender, saucy meat appears before you. The almost heat-free sauce is tangy and sweet but mellow enough to go down nice and easy without a pucker. Friends of the sausage will love the hot links; well-spiced and smoky dogs with a delightful snap. Not to mention the huge bar takes care of all your beer and cocktail needs.
