Food: Critic's Pick

Best Place to Indulge Carnivorous Cravings

TIE: The Big Bib
104 Lanark, (210) 654-8400, thebigbib.com

The Granary (pictured)
602 Avenue A, (210) 228-0124, thegranarysa.com

After relocating from its original spot, Big Bib still garners impressive lines. There are several reasons why, but not all of them fit on your plate. Sure, the brisket is thick and flavorful, the turkey tender and moist, and the beef tips are out of this fucking world, but the attentive and friendly service is as sweet as that buttery peach cobbler. The sweet potato casserole really does taste like heaven, but the baked potato casserole is what dreams are made of.

Brothers Alex and Tim Rattray are doing barbecue their way, by both honoring Texan ‘cue during lunchtime service and knocking smoked meats out of the park at dinner. Everything, from the buttermilk bread to the sweet and crunchy pickles, is made in-house with care—and it shows. Get there early for the best selection as The Granary is known to sell out while trying to keep Pearl visitors and locals fed.
