This Queen West spot makes major hay out of its close proximity to Trinity Bellwoods with a wide-ranging menu of BBQ staples. The kitchen, led by self-taught pitmaster Alex Rad, is fairly well rounded, offering popular pulled pork, full-bodied pork ribs and juicy chicken with a BBQ brush for DIY saucing tableside. Head to upstairs bar Kohl for a digestif. Does bourbon alleviate a meat coma? They’ve got 250 varieties on hand to try – test them for me and report back!
Must-order Buttermilk-battered onion rings ($5.90), pulled pork sandwiches ($9.90).
