Palmetto Pig Barbecue's chefs slow-cook chicken and pulled pork until supple and tender, in addition to whipping up a slew of classic Southern side dishes from scratch. The expert barbecue bosses douse the supple meat in a toothsome tidal wave of homemade sauce, meticulously seasoned with spices and the tears of a magnolia. A parade of crispy fried chicken and hush puppies await rumbling tummies, and made-from-scratch sides such as coleslaw and potato salad duke it out for the title of best supporting comestible on the menu.
Family-managed and staffed exclusively by relatives and close companions, Jack's BBQ Buffet serves hearty Southern cuisine in a hospitable dining room nestled near the scenic Green Meadow golf course. The menu includes a bounty of sauce-worthy selections including succulent chicken, fresh fish, and other rib-sticking fare accompanied by a selection of hunger-sating sides. Carnivores and their meat-minded compatriots can whet their incisors on a dish of robust beef brisket ($7.75), and the daring beef connoisseur can challenge his hand, mouth, and unhinging jaw parts against a monstrous 24-ounce Jack Burger. Jack's BBQ Buffet is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays.
Owner and pit master Mike Dial honed his culinary talents years ago while cooking barbecue for the masses during the Winston Cup races. Each evening at the eatery, he seasons the next day?s meat with a signature rub before smoking the protein for 14 hours. Meats are then slathered with a housemade barbecue sauce and tossed atop a grill for the final touch. Pork chops and chicken are served on a plate or tucked inside a sandwich or retired business envelope. A dozen sides range from chili-cheese-smothered fries to creamy potato salad.
Catawba BBQ & Grill is the successor to Ranucci’s BBQ & Grill, whose menu it hasn't wholly discarded. What three words would describe the food on the new menu? Barbecued, smoked, and pulled. Whether offered in sandwich form or spread across a plate, the pulled pork and chicken gets barbecued and can be smoked in-house for more than 12 hours. Or, dry-rubbed racks of ribs can get served in half or full quantity.
Of course, it wouldn't be Carolina barbecue without southern twists. The chefs take the philly cheesesteak and make it their own by topping pulled pork with onions, peppers, mushrooms, and melted cheddar. Or, they unite smoked beef brisket with melted swiss cheese, barbecue sauce, and jalapeño coleslaw to make a zesty carolina Reuben. Beginning May 13 the establishment will be open seven days a week.
