Featured on the Phantom Gourmet for its menu boasting pit-smoked barbecue, Tex-Mex, and comfort fare, FireBox BBQ boasts made-from-scratch fare that toes the line between black-tie preparation methods and serving casual American classics. Slow-cooked proteins claim valuable plate real estate on the two-meat barbeque combo ($15.89) with options including smoked sausage and flame-grilled brisket, each more tender than a slow-roasted greeting card. The FireBox cuban grilled sandwich with pulled pork, house-smoked bacon, and swiss cheese ($9.29) perfectly pairs with the restaurant’s signature deep-fried sweet potatoes infused with rosemary. Dry-rubbed St. Louis–style pork ribs ($16.89 for a half rack) slide off of bones into eager mouths, or guests can opt for a fried catfish sandwich ($8.49), whose tartar-sauce-slathered interior nourishes while preventing telltale sauce mustaches.
Artfully plated barbecue fare saunters toward industrial-style metal tables atop modern china, and a wide selection of craft beers (not included with Groupon) quenches thirst between smoky bites. The casual interior, with its red and black accents, encourages leisurely dining experiences within sight of the bustling kitchen.
