"You will have fun here." That's the prediction of one Shepherd Express writer who visited Ashley's Que, a Walker's Point barbecue joint operated by a trio of seasoned pit-masters. It's true, the atmosphere here seems geared toward laid-back fun; blues songs drift from the speakers, guests sip draft beer next to a fieldstone fireplace, and bartenders mix drinks such as the nutmeg-laced bourbon milk punch. And we haven't even gotten to the food yet.

This is definitely comfort food. Stacks of tender, saucy ribs and piles of beef brisket fill diners' plates, accompanied by sides such as deep-fried corn on the cob or twice-baked potatoes. Although most of the menu sticks to barbecue classics, there are some outliers, including the gyro sandwich.
