The casual eatery's bright-red floors allude to plates of sauce-slathered ribs. flanked by piles of cool, shredded coleslaw. The house’s brisket takes a starring role on tables, flaunting rich, smoky flavors gained from slow cooking over hickory for 12 hours. Diners can chow down on the combo meals and dinner plates in the restaurant, or buy in bulk for take-home meals that can satiate an entire family. While their meats and homestyle sides only last for one meal, their take-home bottles of their signature barbeque sauce keep the shop’s smokey flavors in the forefront of your memory.

The cooks at Catfish City & BBQ Grill heed the call of hunger with a Southern-style answer to surf 'n' turf: jumbo shrimp and catfish alongside slow-smoked barbecue. Cooks fry catfish fillets in cholesterol-free peanut oil before compiling platters designated for small, medium, and large appetites or pockets. Barbecue masters gingerly massage cuts of pork and beef brisket with a secret spice blend and smoke them over hickory wood for up to 12 hours. On a daily basis, the restaurant's in-house baker prepares three-tier carrot cakes with thick, creamy icing to satisfy sweet teeth or frost gums made out of cake, and fruit and pecan pies are offered as well. This Groupon applies for dine-in and drive-thru.

Piled high with seasoned fries, baked beans, a cheesy biscuit, and slaw, plates crowd with tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs or marinated pulled pork topped with tangy barbecue sauce. Shorty Small's also has a full selection of imported and domestic beers, as well as wine by the glass and nonalcoholic beverages for shorties.

Corky's Ribs & BBQ must be doing something right. The southern barbecue has attracted celebrities such as Phoenix Suns coach Dan Majerle and running back Emmitt Smith, and its sought-after barbecue sauce is served in stores nationwide, except in stores that only sell big-and-tall pajama pants. People can't seem to resist Corky's signature Memphis-style ribs, which are hickory-smoked and slathered in the restaurant's secret blend of spices. The grill also slow cooks St. Louis-style pork ribs, chicken sandwiches, and fish, all of which are served with hearty southern sides.
