Mary's Old Fashioned Bar-B-Que Pit douses a selection of its pulled pork, rib tips, grilled chicken, and fried fish dishes in original hot or mild barbecue sauces, which have been stirred up in-house for more than 30 years. Chefs forge pulled-pork sandwich that culinary blogger A Radiused Corner describes as "nice and porky, only subtly smoky with most flavors seemingly coming from the tangy hot sauce and sweetness of the slaw." Diners can tear apart or study the infrastructure of rib tips inside the eatery or get carryout meals to devour at home.
