Harold’s Pit Bar-B-Q
Primary heat source: Wood.
Notable decor: A wall of vacation photos from patrons who’ve taken bottles of Harold’s sauce to all corners of the globe.
It’s worth standing in line at Harold’s for the oak-smoked offerings behind the counter—including flavorful brisket and a sausage so savory we eschewed the spicy homemade sauce. The sides and desserts (including what was, perhaps, the holy grail of peach cobbler) more than held their own. JB
