Using an in-house brand of tangy, sweet sauces, steaming stacks of ribs, and homespun slow rubs, the family recipes behind Quick Q BBQ deliver authentic, smoky, home-style flavor. Strap a bib around wayward beards and take a gander at the menu, on which heaping plates of ribs, chicken, ham, and mullet await the maws of barbecue connoisseurs. The meat not only falls off the bone but also practically hops in the mouth, chews itself, and writes it all off as a business expense. Barbecue plates come with iced tea and a variety of meat choices, including a jaw-dropping, chin-mopping stack of pulled pork with baked beans and mac 'n' cheese ($9.50) or an entire smoked chicken with mac 'n' cheese and fries ($12.50). Light lunchers can stock their own bags of bones with a three-bone rib sandwich with fries ($6.99), paired with 8-ounce house-made Southern sides such as potato salad, coleslaw, and collard greens ($1.99 each). Crank open your auxiliary stomach for dessert; Quick Q's sugary slew of cherry and peach cobblers ($0.93) and rum cake ($2.99/slice) high five tongues and fist pound bellies. Sidle up to one of Quick Q’s tables clad in a checkered tablecloth, or pull up to the drive-thru to bring victuals home to pod people masquerading as your real family.

Other edible options include salads, sandwiches, and a plethora of sides. A full liquor bar helps keep conversations lubricated, and a relaxed, family-friendly vibe will make diners feel like their clingy home is following them around again.

Hall of Fame player Lee Roy Selmon did a lot of notable things, but perhaps the most lasting part of his legacy is his chain of restaurants. A sports restaurant worthy of his name, Lee Roy Selmon’s focuses on the tasty flavors of his Oklahoma upbringing, combined with the convenience of a sports bar. Diners enjoy his childhood favorites of fried green tomatoes, chicken wings, meatloaf, and brisket. They also are treated like team members; all gathered for a common love of sports. At Lee Roy Selmon’s, it’s perfectly fine to sit back and watch the game while enjoying chicken and waffles. That’s how Lee Roy would have done it.

When the new owners conceived of their idea for Wholly Smokes Bar-B-Que, they checked the frills at the door. Wood booths and tables proudly display two items and two items only: succulent sauce, and fully stocked paper towel dispensers to erase the evidence. Their menu, on the other hand, has a bit more to say—particularly, it celebrates classic American barbecue by allowing customers to put together plates heaped with their choice of meats and sides. There’s a steady supply of sliced pork, beef, and sausage coming out of the pit, which pair well with servings of coleslaw, mac ‘n’ cheese, and barbecue beans. Tailgate specials fuel game days with full slabs of ribs or Britain's 18th-century currency whenever there was a sudden silver shortage: pounds of smoked meat. Wholly Smokes also recently introduced chicken wings, slathered in sauces such as hot garlic or sweet honey barbecue.
