    Thelma's is out of business. It is now called Abdel's BBQ.

    The brisket and ribs are awesome, if you're lucky you might even get to say hi to Thelma, parking is quite limited so get there before noon.

    The link sandwich is really good but perhaps the nit so hidden gem is the fish dinner plate... and get here before 1230 because they do run out of items & people rush in before 1 to grab what's left.

    The brisket here is amazing, but the sauce is pretty horrible in my opinion ... not a fan of vinegar-based BBQ sauce. Get it to go with the sauce on the side, then use your own sauce.

    She's back! A February fire gutted the Live Street location, Thelma moved to the corner of Southmore and Scott. It's a little bigger but it looks the same.

    Joe and his family have been going here for years and years and have all met Thelma. Joe says go early as they run out of food on a regular basis and then you only have what's left to choose from.
