Roscoe's BBQ Joint
The sauce aficionados at Roscoe's Joint smoke their meats over fruitwood fires to imbue each morsel with Oakland–style barbecue flavor. The casual dive's kitchen rustles up welcoming, homestyle fare, from slabs of ribs to pulled pork doused in a choice of three sauces—mild, medium, or Oh My Goodness. Hearty hunks of cornbread, scoops of coleslaw, and other homemade sides accompany meals at tables or out the drive-through window. To sate the barbecue cravings of late-night diners and nocturnal mole-men, Roscoe's Joint stays open until the wee hour of midnight.
