Chefs at High Steaks BBQ prepare barbecue classics from across the south. They expertly slice some cuts into brisket before slowly smoke roasting them in a red wine and BBQ spice marmalade; others they grill into juicy ribeyes. There’s Carolina-style barbecue pork—which chefs slow-smoke and hand chop from the bone—and Memphis-style ribs rubbed with natural spices and kissed by Elvis’s ghost. Drawing inspiration from the Lone Star State, the chefs also smoke-roast certified Angus brisket in a spiced red-wine marmalade. Organic-cornmeal hush puppies and a handful of homemade desserts round out each meal.
High Steaks BBQ accommodates guests in their main dining room or 60-seat private dining room, where visitors can watch the game on a high-definition TV or ritually torch the opposing team’s jerseys in the brick fireplace.
The greatest of meats are paired with sauce sidekicks, slaying the bland and defending the savory. Q's meats are prepared in an authentic Texas-built Bewley pit roaster or infused with woody goodness in an on-site smoker. Pay tribute by plunging face first into a platter of pulled pork with Texas toast, cole slaw, and beans ($16.95), or by cracking open the crispy skin of a brined, glazed whole chicken ($18), topped against every law of decency with sides such as fried okra and cheese grits (both $6). Tip back a three-bourbon Qhattan with cherry and vermouth ($9) or a 13-ounce glass of Shiner Bock ($7) amid the pleasant aural aroma of live tunes on the weekend, or sneak to the back for a wee dessert of buttermilk shortcakes ($7) and a full rack of dry-rubbed pork spare ribs ($24).
