The American BBQ

With generous portions of Memphis-style barbeque—light on the sauce and slow smoked up to 16 hours on smoldering mixed hardwoods (oak, hickory, and maple)—and 17 sides to choose from, including cornbread (of course) and a light cucumber, onion, and carrot salad, American BBQ has been pleasing patrons for more than 15 years. Step into the dining room, decorated with vintage neon signs, barn board, and an eclectic mix of antiques, place an order, and then grab a Southern sweet tea or a beer along with self-serve popcorn while you wait.
