    SC's nine types of falling-off-the-bone meats are smoked with oak/maple. We recommend the pulled chicken plated as a griddled Texas sammie with broccoli cheese casserole. Read more

    Opening in November 2011, Top Chef star Tiffani Faison's barbecue ode has been nothing short of a smash hit. The biscuits are legendary, and there's now an outdoor beer garden. [Eater 38 Member]

    Honey buttered biscuits. Omg. Get a basket and take the leftovers home for breakfast. The ribs are the worst I've ever had and the mac n cheese has poor flavor.

    Don't want to miss out on the BBQ but afraid you'll burst if you order a tray? Get their salad, which comes with seasonal ingredients, and top it with the meat of your choice.

    Don't bother with the fried chicken - batter doesn't stay on - so either you get a big bite of naked chicken or batter - go pulled pork or chicken instead.
