Dining Guide

Heim Barbecue (W. Magnolia Ave)

Photograph by Wyatt McSpadden

Unless you get to Heim Barbecue early, you’ll probably see the line of people before the trailer. Prepare to wait, but know that the line moves fast. The menu is small. You won’t find a poultry option, and there’s only one sausage, a jalapeño-cheese variety. The best things on the menu are the brisket and pork ribs. The brisket needs no adornment. It has great flavor and is imbued with melted fat to the point of decadence. There’s a little sweetness in the salty rub on the ribs, with just enough pepper and smoke. They also exhibit the exemplary doneness of a pork rib that’s not tough, but not falling off the bone either.
