Jo-Jo's BBQ loads hungry diners' plates with barbecued pork, baby back ribs, and expertly fried catfish from the tempting menu. Feast-opening starters whet appetites with savory flavor, including half and full orders of barbecue nachos, piled high with meat and topped with a jaunty sour-cream hat ($6.25/$9.50). The catfish sandwich's deep-fried fillet snuggles inside a hoagie, dressed to the diner's liking ($5.50), and a side of deep-fried okra adds additional crunch ($2.25). Barbecue beans, coleslaw, and french fries surround the barbecue-sandwich plates, starring a choice of sliced pork loin, sliced beef, pulled pork, ham, turkey, or link sausage ($7.95–$10.95). Racks of ribs delight diners in full or half sets of baby back or spare varieties ($13.50–$19.95). To complement the flavors of meat, domestic beers ($2.25) and Corona ($3.25) create an international team of thirst-slaying ethanol heroes.
Corky's Ribs & BBQ must be doing something right. The southern barbecue has attracted celebrities such as Phoenix Suns coach Dan Majerle and running back Emmitt Smith, and its sought-after barbecue sauce is served in stores nationwide, except in stores that only sell big-and-tall pajama pants. People can't seem to resist Corky's signature Memphis-style ribs, which are hickory-smoked and slathered in the restaurant's secret blend of spices. The grill also slow cooks St. Louis-style pork ribs, chicken sandwiches, and fish, all of which are served with hearty southern sides.

Capitol Smokehouse slow-roasts every ounce of its menu's barbecue eats, keeping temperatures low for 16 to 18 hours to produce tender bits of brisket, pork, and chicken. Meat seekers can set carnivorous sights on orders of ribs, sandwiches, burgers, and belly-filling sides, as well as a variety of daily specials. Traverse the saucy peaks of the jumbo pulled-pork sandwich, whose summit comes capped with a crunchy hat of coleslaw ($6.25), or set hollowing maws loose on a half-slab of baby-back ribs ($10.99). Capitol Smokehouse & Grill also sates saccharine-minded mouths with its dessert selection, which includes gobs of gooey butter cake ($1.75) and delectable mouthfuls of Candy’s banana pudding ($1.75).
The cooks at Catfish City & BBQ Grill heed the call of hunger with a Southern-style answer to surf 'n' turf: jumbo shrimp and catfish alongside slow-smoked barbecue. Cooks fry catfish fillets in cholesterol-free peanut oil before compiling platters designated for small, medium, and large appetites or pockets. Barbecue masters gingerly massage cuts of pork and beef brisket with a secret spice blend and smoke them over hickory wood for up to 12 hours. On a daily basis, the restaurant's in-house baker prepares three-tier carrot cakes with thick, creamy icing to satisfy sweet teeth or frost gums made out of cake, and fruit and pecan pies are offered as well. This Groupon applies for dine-in and drive-thru.
The enormous menu at Shorty Small's is home to a whole array of Southern-inspired comfort food, but what they're perhaps best known for is barbecue. Piled high with seasoned fries, baked beans, a cheesy biscuit, and slaw, plates crowd with tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs or marinated pulled pork topped with tangy barbecue sauce. Shorty Small's also has a full selection of imported and domestic beers, as well as wine by the glass and nonalcoholic beverages for shorties.
