Augie's Barbed Wire Smokehouse Restaurant Review: Augie’s has roofed its outdoor beer garden, making it more weather-friendly but less coolly casual. Inside, the restaurant’s "décor"---to overstate the term---retains displays of the namesake barbed wire, along with the requisite beer signs and rusting agrarian implements. As with most barbecue shacks, diners order at a counter where the meats are sliced and trimmed. Get here early in the day for the popular pork ribs. Though it could use a more assertive rub, Augie’s moist brisket rates better than most. We also suggest the pulled pork. Sides include creamed corn, coleslaw, mac ‘n’ cheese and potato salad, but only the stewed green beans with onion, bacon and tomato transcend predictability.
