Captain John's menu comes fully loaded with a selection of sauced wonders that will warm the heart of even the most callused barbecue veteran. The barbecue dinner plate, the belle of Captain John's Barbecue ball, comes loaded with either pork ($7.99) or beef ($8.29), tangy sauce, and coleslaw on a toasted bun with a side of barbecue beans and fries. Bone nibblers need look no further than the half-slab rib plate (complete with beans, slaw, potato salad, and a toasted bun, $11.95), while the smoked turkey leg ($6.39) is a rustic feast ideal for menacingly pointing at terrified peasants in the style of your favorite tyrannical 13th-century meat baron. Wash it all down with an apple- or peach-fired pie ($1.99), the only dessert clinically proven to combat post-barbecue depression, or, as it's known colloquially, the sauce-fits.
