Dixie Belle’s Bar-B-Q's meats, such as a platter of juicy pulled pork ($7.99), spend 3–12 hours soaking up flavor vapors from slow-burning hickory logs to acquire their telltale pink inner rings and alluringly husky voices. A half slab of ribs slathered in homemade sauce ($8.99) keeps the wet-nap industry flourishing, and sandwiches count among their ranks the Western ($6), a hunk of flame-nuzzled beef brisket accompanied by mushrooms, sautéed onions, horseradish mayo, and the score of a Sergio Leone movie. The menu mates most dishes with a choice of more than a dozen flavorful fixins, which include fried okra, collard greens, and cinnamon apples; fixins are also available in dinner-size half-pint ($1.99), pint ($3.49), or quart ($6.49) servings.
At Remington Grill, guests dine on Texas-sized portions while surrounded by scenes from the Old West, including hand-painted wall murals depicting cowboys and their noble steeds, horses and velociraptors. In keeping with the casual theme, patrons order and pick up their meals at the counter. They then head to the tables balancing plates loaded with half-pound ground-chuck burgers, hickory-smoked ribs, beans and slaw, and massive fries hand cut from Idaho potatoes. They can also stop at the free fixin's bar to pile on the toppings.

Owners Jerry and Kathy Hart opened Ole Time Barbecue in 1993; for Jerry, it was the fruition of a meaty dream. As a small child he helped his grandfather Quillie cook barbecue, learning patience as well as the family recipe in the slow-cooking process. The menu stands as a testament to Quillie's traditions. Classic dinners such as the hand-chopped barbecue pork plate and barbecue chicken, fried chicken, and country-style steak (all items $6.99 regular, $7.99 large) please any palate. Combination dinners are available for $9.99 each; all dinners are served with two sides (choose from Southern classics such as fried apple sticks, fried okra, and collards) and Ole Time's famously delicious hushpuppies. For morning birds, breakfast is available from 6 a.m.–10 a.m.

Times have changed but Red Hot and Blue still cook their meat according to the same time-honored tradition – without running from the authorities. The hickory-smoked ribs, pulled pork, chicken, beef brisket, sausage, and seafood are slathered in a variety of Red Hot and Blue’s award-winning sauces that are sure to satisfy even the heartiest of appetites.
