Under the watchful eye of owner Rich Earle, the casual pub crafts dishes such as Angus burgers topped with Carolina-style barbecue pork and smoked or fried wings entirely in-house. The pillars of the menu, though, are the slow-smoked barbecue platters?pork, brisket, chicken, and baby back ribs?paired with traditional sides, including coleslaw and cornbread muffins. Events, such as live music on Saturday nights and screenings of Sunday- and Monday-night NFL games, contribute to the lively atmosphere. Decades-old photos of the city of Solon line the walls, conjuring a blend of local pride and nostalgia.

Over the last nine decades, Kennedy's BBQ has been smoking, slicing, and piling turkey, ham, and pork on sandwiches seasoned with top-secret ingredients. This smoke shack's meat masters start with premium protein, pit-smoking the savories in an on-premise smokehouse to infuse succulent juices. Then, soft buns are laden with ham, turkey, beef, or pulled pork ($4.75 each), slathered with barbecue sauce, and generously dolloped with a house-made cabbage relish concocted from a secret recipe. Sociable sandwiches can pal around with a bowl of hearty chili or smoky bean soup, studded with tender chunks of pit ham and cornbread crumbles ($3.50 each). Desserts such as homemade cookies ($0.75), milkshakes ($3.30), and Troyer's Home Pantry pies by the slice ($2.60) finish off a decadent meal more sweetly than a nuzzle from a candied teddy bear.

The Dickey’s Barbecue Pit sign may be ubiquitous today as a spot for good ole’ Texas barbecue, but when Travis Dickey first opened his Dallas shop in 1941, the sign had to share space with advertisements to help pay rent. In the 70 years since then, the Dickeys have done well for themselves, with their initial store spawning a slew of franchises throughout the country. Though the barbecue at each outpost is no longer under the hand of one of Dickey’s descendants, each shop still smokes their own meats in-house to create the signature Texan flavor that infuses their briskets, pulled pork, and fall-off-the-bone ribs. Meals can come in any size, from the a la carte sandwiches to platters that incorporate a chosen number of meats with a buttery roll, a pickle, two homestyle sides, and free ice cream. Whether serving up their dishes in the dining room or packing them up for take-away or catering, the staff ensures that each client gets a taste of Texas home cooking without the hassle rubbing every dish on a campfire crock-pot.
