Derrick Walker started doing pop-ups before it was cool, back in 2005 or so. Armed with a culinary degree and a competition pedigree, he finally landed a permanent spot near Hillside Park two years ago with the help of his wife, Kesha. The usual suspects are on the self-described “Tex-Soul” menu, among them moist brisket with a peppery bark and tender pork ribs. But skipping the juicy turkey and chicken would be a mistake, and the fatty, crispy rib tips are a must. If you need some veggies in your life, we recommend the spicy collard greens. Wrap up your order with the banana pudding or Coca-Cola cake.
