It’s hard to believe that you can find authentic Southern barbecue in a place like Vail, but it’s true—these ‘Bama boys know what they’re doing. Learning to barbecue in Tuscaloosa, the owners started with a small carry-out joint in Lionshead. They smoke all of the meats (chicken, pork, turkey and ribs) daily, and, when they run out, the place closes. While some of the sides dishes are menu mainstays (baked beans, coleslaw), check to see if black-eyed peas or collard greens are offered. Finish up with banana puddin’ (the ‘Nilla Wafer is on the bottom) and a PBR and you’ve had a true taste of the South in the Rocky Mountains.
